I have really enjoyed my time at Richwoods. I love how diverse and accepting the school is. The principal, Brett Elliot, brings such a revitalizing energy to the school. The faculty at Richwoods really cares about their students and wants them to succeed. In addition the IB program really challenges me to be the best student I can be while truly preparing me for a college workload.

I enjoyed my time spent there. Especially with the IB program which allowed me to form such a tight knit bond with my peers. It was a valuable experience where I learned from my teachers and matured into the adult that I am today. However, before the principal was changed, there weren't many fun activities and flexibilty within the school setting. I'm glad that to see the current students are having more fun and are experiencing more vivid moments. Although it is a relatively smaller school compared to Central, you get to familarize yourself with the teachers and students on a better level. Plus, you're less likely to have anxiety in finding the classrooms. The teachers are excellent and so relatable!
It’s a really good school. The teachers care about you actually receiving the educational knowledge. They want you apply yourself. If the feel your slacking and not giving your all they will take away any distraction to make sure you’re focused!
