Richland High School Reviews
High school has some of the best academics, arts, and sports in the area. School building and grounds are very nice, new, and clean; theater/performing arts center is top-notch and state-of-the-art; sports field, also known as Herlinger Field, is well kept. However, much emphasis goes to sports over academics and arts. There is a lot of focus in academics about doing well on standardized testing such as PSSAs and Keystones versus what students will need in college. One-to-one system works well though, and the entire high school takes advantage of it. An anti-bullying initiative has also been implemented, but more could be done to reinforce it. Bullying is not a common issue, but notable instances have occurred and not all are dealt with.
Absolutely love it here - this school has given me opportunities, that no other school in Cambria county could give me. I am so thankful for my teachers and how they have poured into me & for the administrators who make sure I am always on my A game. I get to go to college for free because of all the scholarships I have gotten and this is all thanks to the opportunities I have been able to take advantage of through Richland. Like every high school, Richland isn’t perfect, but it’s one of the best in the state. It has been a blessing for me to go to school in this district since kindergarten- I could not thank my teachers and all Richland staff enough. I will forever be grateful this is where I got my education.
Richland is a pretty good school, and as someone who has gone to many different schools, that's saying something! For the most part, kids are nice, will offer to help carry your things when you're hurt even if they don't know your name. There are kids, like every school, who need to get a little more world knowledge and understand that this community's views does not account for the way the rest of the world works, but they're kids so it's understandable. Richland is trying very hard to stop bullying in school, and though it could be better, the thought and energy the faculty put into the program is amazing. Teachers are often a bit wacky but it serves to brighten up the day.
