What I liked most about my school is the administration, teachers, and staff all were amazing to get along with. The students here are all great to get along with as well. My school years so far has been full of amazing experiences. I have been involved with the National Honors Society, the Student Government Association, ULM TRIO Male Mentoring group, and the Chase Leadership Academy. All my classes I have been able to excel in. My school has been an integral part of getting me ready for my future. I would recommend this school to anyone considering to go here. I am a proud Richwood High School Ram.

My experience at Richwood High School is of nothing but pure joy! The teachers really care about us and our education. If their is something we don't understand, they'll teach to the best of their ability and even beyond until we fully understand what is being taught. They never overlook the students that work really hard and make excellent grades and have great conduct. Richwood is a race welcoming school, although we're a predominantly black HBHS. Our sport teams is amazing! Our school spirit is high and can even be called excessive. I love my school! I'm looking forward to the rest of my years there.
My experience at Richwood High school has been a great significance! I love the learning environment and all the great teachers we have here helping us to thrive in our education. At Richwood, we learn how to prepare ourselves for the real world. Our Principles and teachers go out of there way to provide tremendous resources that would help us in the future. Here at Richwood High School,we have a Career building that provides a various amounts of career paths to choose from such as cosmetology,dentistry, welding etc. Richwood is one of the most motivating schools I have attended so far and I am proud to be a senior at The Richwood High School!
