Richland High School Reviews
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!
I graduated in 2016, and my experience was pretty normal. The school has good teachers, good administration, and good resources. The teachers were always willing to help out and give extra time to students who were struggling. The food was lackluster, but that is to be expected at public school. The sports program is very good, the sports teams make it to state regularly and the sports medicine program is awesome, would recommend it to anyone who is considering a career in medicine. Another great program is running start, which allows hard working high school students the chance to take college level classes for free at the local community college, all while counting towards graduation.
I do like how you can individualize your classes and when you get tenured teachers they typically care very much about your success. Having options between doing Chemistry or Physics and German or French are some of the really great options that I think they have. They also have a large amount of school involvemnt in sports which makes a Friday night a reall ygood time. Having Tenured teachers who teach subjects such as Chemistry makes classes there very enjoyable, however a change of teachers who are not partially excited about their job does make it hard on the students who are already struggling, making everyone's experience rather unenjoyable. Talking to parents and other students and going as a group to the administration is how I found the best way to get things to change for the better, at least in the perspective of a student.
