Richfield Senior High School Reviews

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.

I really enjoyed my experience at my high school, it was fun and the classes I took challenged me and made me think critically. I believe that creating more opportunities and different classes might make the overall high school experience better because it will prepare us better for after high school plans. For example most colleges use APA format when writing, but all through high school we were told to use MLA because that is what college would use. Also offer more classes that could relate to more college majors and prepare you for your planned major. This could also be made a little easier by creating more periods throughout the day.
My experience at Richfield High School was one of a kind. There were a lot of changes while I was there, however, I did enjoy my time being there. The best thing about Richfield is that it is a very diverse community. It's known for that, and it does have strengths but there are a lot of weaknesses towards that. The one thing I wish would change is the achievement gap that is currently in place. I personally only had the same classmates due to this, because of the small variation in students that were in excelled classes.
