Richfield Senior High School Reviews

Attending school here was a disappointment. I was a high-achieving student and was not able to pursue my academic interests without taking courses elsewhere. Richfield is severely lacking in resources, academically, monetarily, and physically. There are hardly any clubs, terrible sports teams, a reputation for bad academics, and no feel of community. Teachers are unmotivated and students are rowdy. It's a terrible environment to attend school in, and it makes me worried about the reflection my school will have on me when applying to college. There is no opportunity to get ahead here.

Although Richfield High School is beginning to reconstruct some of their building, the facilities (bathrooms, in particular) were incredibly grotesque and run-down. I hope that part of their reconstruction plan is to fix these bathrooms, who often have no doors on the stalls and lack basic maintenance. Aside from that, Richfield High School is a generally average school. The education provided is not poor, but based on our average ACT scores, it is also far from the best. The teachers that make up the Richfield High School staff, though, are generally awesome. I have had the great opportunity to learn from many understanding, caring teachers that clearly want their students to succeed. Although every teacher has their own way of handling their classes, I have not had any particular issues with the teachers hired at Richfield High School.
My time at Richfield was like watching a bad movie about high school, there were fights in the hall, bathrooms were gross and could use a fresh coat of paint to cover the graffiti. Some teachers you could tell cared about their job and the importance of being a teacher but some teachers did not care, they would just let the disruptions of other students keep happening and it effected how we learned most days. There were cops that walked around the school and we had drug dogs come in and do locker checks. I would like to think that since I graduated that things have gotten better for the students there.
