Attending Richmond Community has shown me that high schools have the ability to fully prepare students for college without having to give student a heavy work load. Information taught to students are well retained and as far as I can see, applied out into the world and college. Despite this, it would be better if Richmond Community had the opportunity to have more financial benefits to provide students with more technology to help students who don't have access

My experience a Richmond Community High School has been something to remember. For starters, I enjoy the school traditions that we have at our school, which is Harvest Fest and Morning Meeting. During Harvest Fest, alumni that graduated from RCHS come back and hang out with the underclassmen in our field day activities.
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!
