Richman School has done amazing things for the kids that attend. Their STEAM initiative has really changed the teaching and learning. As a parent who chooses to bring them to Fullerton on a transfer, I am extremely pleased with what I see and hear when I visit the classrooms. My oldest has graduated and is ready for middle school because of the instruction and guidance he received there. My daughter will continue to attend as well. I appreciate the dedicated teachers and administration who have high expectations for student learning and behavior.

The teachers seem very involved in their students and parent involvement is encouraged. However, the administration is completely clueless. The principal is clueless and the front office staff is worse. Parents aren't allowed on school campus, but the staff can't answer even the simplest of questions about the school's medication or cafeteria cash balance policies, making it impossible to get answers. Good luck figuring the school out on your own because you won't get any help.

The teachers at Richman School provide challenging classwork and homework. There are also many programs and opportunities for students to receive support in meeting their goals. I enjoy visiting Richman and coming to family involvement nights, parent coffees, and school events. Everyone is warm and it feels like a big family.

This is a school that is a serious disaster. If you want to transfer your child out of this school good luck. No other schools seem to be willing to take students from this area

Richman Elementary provides a quality educational program that grows better every year. With its 167 point gains in API over the past 5 years, Richman continues to maintain high expectations for every child. Now, with the addition of its Comprehensive School Reform grant, children, teachers, administrators, and parents will see even greater gains. You can rest assured that your child will be successful at Richman Elementary School provided he/she accepts their role to be an active learner.

I think Richman is a great place to be, they have pre-school through 6 grade. Lunch is free, they have an excellent after school program for their students that runs until pm, and teachers are great. They also offer extra help after school and and very nice!
