Over the years I have attended Richland school district, I have learned an abundant amount of information. Each year I am provided with new information from new people who are ready to help me tackle the new year. I have received education from some of the best teachers I have ever met. They work one on one with everyone making sure we are all comfortable with how we feel academically. I feel incredibly prepared for the road ahead of me because of the resources presented to me. Richland School district also supplies great amounts of help in any other categories needed, such as guidance and new opportunities. Overall, I would highly recommend anyone to this district!
Richland High School is overall one of the best schools out there. The push for every individual to be the best they possibly can is outstanding. The Fine Arts Department and extracurricular activities are a huge chunk of Richland. From musicals to D6 championships, they have been recognized as highly talented and successful. As for students who have no interest in musicals or sports, Richland also offers clubs and social activities. SADD and Key club have created a huge impact on the school, from bagging candy for police officers to giving back to the less fortunate. In addition, Richland offers a bullying program called "Not In R School," and over the years, it has brought the district together. Not every school can provide amazing food for their students, but Richland actually offers not only healthy lunch meals, they also offer breakfast everyday. Overall, I have had a blast for all my years in the high school. Being a Richland Ram truly was and will always be a honor!
My time at Richland High School (RHS) has been spectacular. The staff and faculty all hold a deep understanding of student life and have done an excellent job making our school into a fantastic learning environment. Academically, students perform at high-levels thanks to the teachers’ dedication in providing engaging yet informative classes. Furthermore, the staff does well in acknowledging students’ struggles and helping them with what they need. RHS also provides students with an array of extracurricular activities and opportunities. I commend my school on creating a safe and healthy setting during the current global pandemic. The school and all its facilities are always in the best condition and are never left unattended. There is not much constructive criticism I can provide. I would love to see some more acknowledgment towards academic activities and more guidance to help students achieve their goals. Other than those two notes, I believe that RHS is top caliber in every way.
