We love this school!!! The teachers, administrators, and staff go above and beyond in every aspect!!! As a teacher in the district myself, I'm amazed every time we attend a school function at the extraordinary parental support and it s all because of the welcoming atmosphere that Richland has!! Hands down this is the BEST school for any student K-6th to attend!!!!
OUr Teachers and Principle make the difference. Gwen Looney know all the kids by First and Last name. The connection the school has with the parents and community are through her leadership! Hands down the best!!!
This is one of the best schools I have seen within the district. I love Ms. Looney and all the faculty there. They are the greates people in the world. I hope when I become a teacher I can work for these guys because it seems to be the place to be.
Richland Elementary is not only my alma mater it is where we have chosen to send our daughter. We decided on Richland rather than send her to some of the very reputable private schools in Memphis. We believe the teachers at Richland are some of the best in the region and the curriculum incorporates methods and practices that have been proven by extensive research to be highly effective. The atmosphere at Richland is very positive. I have talked to several students, my daughter included, who really enjoy going to school there. Disipline at Richand is strict but not oppressive. The guidance counselor is one of the most caring and helpful educational professionals I've seen. The rest of the staff are highly motivated and very helpful, often performing tasks well outside their normal duties. Richland Elementary is one of the best schools in AR, and the midsouth.
