I like the teachers but there isn't any diversity. The people can be friendly but more often seem closed off from each other.
What I like about RBCHS is we are all pretty tight like Family. I feel comfortable enough with all my teachers to be able to talk to them like they are my Mom and Dad. Even my parents think it's cool. I would say that is one of the benefits to going to a small size school. All my teachers are amazing and are always willing to help where they can. This year has been challenging with Covid-19 and trying to be prepared with applying to colleges and visit colleges. I feel that my teachers and counselor have done and amazing job getting me prepared the best they could during this pandemic. Whether it was setting up zoom meetings or communicating by email. We also have an amazing athletic department. I am so happy and grateful we were able to have a football season in 2019 and because of our hard work and amazing coach we won State!! I have had amazing 4 years at RBCHS and that is because of my teachers, staff, coaches and the Admins. This is the reason I am voting 5 stars.
I enjoyed taking Honors/AP courses with like-minded groups of people who all worked very hard together. Some of these classes were very beneficial. However, our school lacks diversity and lacks exciting opportunities. Although they can afford it, we have no theatre, no pool, no practice rooms for dance or cheer, and many other features. The only decent facility we have is a large gymnasium. There are many sports teams we do not have like lacrosse, swimming, tennis, gymnastics, hockey, intramural sports, or separate dance and poms teams. There are many common high school activities and culture we do not do/have such as a no real homecoming parade, no post-proms, no winter formal, no mascot, no tailgating, no letterman jackets, no cultural activities, no IB programs, no real STEAM program, and many others. Additionally, many students have had no success when confronting school administration with their problems with other students, whether it be bullying, drug use, harassment, etc.
Great place to go. Most teachers are very nice and helpful. Football team won State, but we excel in many other areas as well that aren't celebrated as much.
It’s a good school. The teachers especially made a big impact on who I am and they were very personable.
My experience at RB was, overall, one that helped me grow as a person. I changed a lot in my time there and I hope to take some of the knowledge I gained there and use it beyond those walls. Being a typical highschooler though, I wouldn't say it was perfect, but there's also nothing I particularly disliked. Some of my teachers were very good and helped me out, either by being a good person to talk to or encouraging me. So thank you to them!
Overall, Richmond is a good school with many great teachers that want to help you succeed. I have multiple teachers that I know I can go to for help at any point and a great counselor that is constantly pushing me to be my best and succeed in school and as I apply for college. The school lacks electives that could offer a bit of taste into other aspects of life and our potential futures but having the opportunity to go to the Tech Campus at our local community college does make up for the lack of electives a bit. The enrollment is continuing to decrease as the years go on however I don't think that is such a bad thing because it makes classes smaller and gives the teachers more individual time with each student to help them through each class. Richmond is rated one of the best schools in our area and I find that to be very fitting.
It's an okay school. Other schools have more money but we always come out with higher SAT scores. The teachers are the best around. There couldn't possibly be a better assortment to support our students.
The majority of the teachers know you by name and care about you as an individual. The administration knows you by name and will stop you in the halls to ask your you're doing. It's a small town feel with a college prep education. It has helped set me up for success in college.
Richmond-burton as a whole is nice on the outside, with a great football program, seemingly nice staff and some of the best test scores in the state. But looking deeper not all teacher seems to know what their doing and for some the extent of their teaching is just word for word out of some book. Don't get me wrong it's a great school and it has a bunch of great teachers, but their just seems to be some bad eggs in the bunch who don't seem to care about teaching or the students in the slightest. It's also super tiny and they cram as many kids as they can into classes so it's easy to get overwhelmed and feel like everyone on top of each other all the time.
Great school, nothing more to say. Great food, atmosphere, teachers, fellow students. It’s just an all around great school full of great people.
Academically RB is a very good school. Teachers really make you feel welcome in their class and it is overall a good high school experience. The only downside is school culture isn't as great but it's been improving!
Richmond Burton prepares their students for college extremely well. They are nationally ranked as one of the best college prep schools.
There was a lot to do and it’s very academic based. It is a small school and very friendly atmosphere.
At Richmond Burton High school I would like to see the Fine arts department such as choir, band,and drama have a better part in the school. As most high schools football is the biggest part as well as other sports. I feel the FIne Arts department is not recognized enough.
its a very small school so everyone knows everyone, which is a good thing and a bad thing. it is also a very white dominant school so there is not much diversity in this school, but the teachers are great. they try their best to prepare you for college and they are very understanding. administration/counselors are there whenever you need them: if you have any questions or concerns.
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.
