My school is amazing! Everyone is kind and involved with out school we have over 100 clubs that welcomes every kind of person. We have sock club, buddy club, Lumberjack club which is where you go eat pancakes in flannels every Friday. I love my school because anyone can get involved and we all support each other. Athletes support the theater kids and the theater kids support the athletes. We always have a great support section at our sporting events and going to my school is just so fun. We get foreign exchanged students and get to learn about their different cultures. WE have so much school pride that we have spirit weeks all the time and almost all of the kids participate in them! I love going to a school that feels like home!

Richland High School has arguably the best community in the area. Our teachers are outstanding, so often I talk to teenagers whose teachers aren’t passionate, and I’m so fortunate to have never felt that as a problem. Additionally, the sense of community my school has through sports it’s very strong. Almost every sport, male or female, has a recent (past 10 year) state title. The entire town comes out for the basketball and football games too. You’ll even see 60 year olds with “Richland High Alumni” license plates. The one thing I would love to see change would be the music program. Because sports are so emphasized, the arts are generally shoved away. However, in recent years the arts, especially music, have been given a lot more recognition.
I am currently a sophomore at Richland High school. Going into high school I was nervouse but, everybody is very welcoming and kind! Something i would like to see change is the diversity. Especially in friend groups. Being in school I have notice how divided the school can sometimes get. Other then that it is a wounderful school! Fun fact: there are many clubs for everybody. For example, lumberjack club, microsoft club even sock club! I would never want to change being a Richland Bomber!
