An okay experience. The ministers are amazing trips where you are able to learn new things and bond with classmates. Since it us a small school, class sizes are small so you get the individual attention you need but drama lingers everywhere and rumors spread quicker than wildfire. The best thing about the school is the teachers because they are so nice and will put effort into challenging you and helping you succeed. The second best thing is the amount of clubs. You would think there are barely any because its a small school but its just the opposite. There are so. many clubs to join and if they don't have yours, you can easily make one!

Where do I begin? RCHS is an amazing school that offers rigorous academics as well as amazing opportunities for success. Everyone that works at the school from the teachers to the counselors want to see you to well and create chances for you too. I had a great time at RCHS , our minimesters trips to NYC, Charleston, and Chesapeake Camping Trip allowed us to be independent and also learn other cultures and explore new territory. Honestly the best school I have ever gone to!!! Everyone that attended RCHS has excelled in college as well as life and RCHS has a strong family feel where alumni are all connected.
Richmond Community High School isn't really like a school, its more like a home, a real family based "community." The annual trips and bonding experiences with our peers and teachers are memories we all will never forget. Everyone in the entire school knows one another on a first name basis. Even though we are a small school with majority minorities we put up amazing grades and always have fun. One thing I would change is the college prep help, I feel kind of left to dry out here preparing for college alone, other than that everything is great.
