Richmond is a good school; however, I feel as though many students aren't engaged in school activities. This is not the fault if the staff, it is just a general observation. The teaching staff is wonderfull and very creative with their lesson plans. The maintenance staff is amazing. Our campus always looks beautiful. The administration could do more to make sure rules are being followed and could better finance for the likings if all extracurricular activities.

It is a small school so it makes it easier to get to know others. Becasue it is a smaller school we all come together in times of need. The teachers really push their students to their highest potential and get their students ready for college. It would be nice to have more facilities like tennis courts and a theater. The students do a good job of organizing activities and especially during the beginning of the school year for incoming freshman for their orientation.
As a junior at RBCHS, I'm glad to call this school home The teachers go above and beyond, the general vibe is positive, and activities such as homecoming week generate so much school spirit!
