I have found most of the teachers at Richardson to be prima donnas. They expect the kids to be perfect and not be normal kids who make normal mistakes growing up. I am glad that my child goes to Richardson, since all of the children seem to be good kids and I feel that my child is at a safe school. However, I do feel that the grading practices are very strict. This year there is a new principal and even dress code seems stricter than previously. I am saying all of this to warn parents that they need to be ready to really be involved in their child's education and expect a lot of homework (2-3 hours a night). I do feel that my child will be well prepared for high school when she finishes at Richardson Prep.
I am a student a rph and i love every minute of it. I am currently an eighth grader andbsad to leave rph for arroyo but remember...once a tiger always a tiger
I graduated from rph in 05 I loved everyday I spent there. I am a senior in hs this year, and as I look back on the 3 years I spent at rph, I realize that those were some of the best years of my life. Thanks rph for helping me realize my potential. Now I am going off to college next year to get a degree in Forensics Anthropology, and I truly believe that rph is responsible to help me realize how much I am capable of doing when I put my mind to it.
I just ended my three years at RPH. I loved it. It's an amazing experience. All the kids and teachers support eachother and they're really nice people. This school is a little tough but if you try, you can make it through. I love this school and I'll always remember my experiences at RPH.
I started this school in January of '08. Even though I started late I recieved a bundle of support and help from teachers and fellow peers. Even though there is a challenge to get into the school it is worth the wait. At my old school I was failing and my highest grade was a C. But at RPH my lowest grade is a C. The vibe is excellence. There is no drama or distraction what-so-ever. This is a great school !! I will take everything I learned here throughout my entire life
This is the best school ever! I've been going here for this school year and I'm having the time of my life
This is an excellent school! My son has learned great skills in music and is now on the city honor band. He didn't even play 2 yrs ago. It is a commitment but worth it!!
If you're not a stay at home parent I would not recommend this school. My child had received around 75 math problems along with the other subjects, to be completed in one evening. My child had to be taught math at home. She never could do her homework based on the teachers instruction.
I go to the school it is so amazing. I love it the kids are nice and so are the teachers. It is a great school.
I have only been at this school for a couple of weeks. This school is a great experience because it is a more challenging school. I wish I could stay here forever.
RPH is an amazing place to work from top to bottom. The administration is supportive of teachers; the teachers go above and beyond what is required of them; the students are dedicated and hard-working; and all additional staff members play an important role in ensuring that the RPH family functions properly. It is a unique place, like no other, and it is an honor, joy, and privilege to teach at such a wonderful place!
Richardson is a great school. My daughter went there for two years and she loved it. The music program is ABOVE EXCELLENT. The staff is very dedicated and treats you with the upmost respect. The campus is clean and the school is VERY up to date in technology.The principal is great and any parent should feel blessed that their child be allowed to attend this very prestigious school.
I personally think that Richardson PREP HI is one of the best schools in the district of San Bernardino. Although I had struggled in my first few months here at Richardson, many encouraging teachers and friends helped me get through. Webgrader has helped me a lot. I always checked on my grades, and if I wasn't to satisfied with a grade I always new what to work on. Now as an 8th grader-to-be, I am proud to have been able to survie two years at Richardson Prep Hi, and I look forward to having to attend 8th grade.
I think Richardson is a terrific school. My son really struggled with his work for the first month or two but now he is doing great! The after school program (CAPS) has really helped him to concentrate and understand his homework. He is maintaining A's and B's, and is also on the school softball team. He loves it. I love Webgrader. I like to be able to check the progress of my son online, at my convenience. I have two younger children that I will try my best to get into Richardson. I will not have them attend any other middle school here in San Bernardino. I believe Richardson is the best! A very big thanks to the staff at Richardson!
Personally I believe that Richardson is one of the best schools in the district of San Bernardino. Richardson's goal is to aim at all the students not just a few. Those students who ask for help will surely recieve it from the schools ready and willing teachers. Two of my kids have gone to Richardson and all year long all I have heard is good review from my children and their teachers. One very good thing I would like to take in account is that you have the ability to see your child grades every month unlike most middle school in San Bernardino. This helps inform, and more importantly, prepare your child for the coming month so that can make sure that they do not slack off. Furthermore, as an add on the seeing your childs grade every month you can also check your child's grades online with webgrader.
Richardson prep is a great school for the academics. They teach the kids to be responsible. What I really like is the online - internet webgrader system. You can check your childs progress at any time, any day and see exactly what assignments are due and what grade your child received on each assignment as well as how they are doing overall in each class. It is a great school - if you are able to get into it.
This is a wonderful school that my child has improved much in. This school makes you feel like your all family! They have excellent staff and awsome students! They even have a after school jazz band!
My son attended 3 years at Richardson. This was an excellent school. He is more prepared for high school academics than most. He enjoyed Art and Science a great deal. However, he found math to be challenging. I would say the one thing my son appreciated the most was being able to go to a teacher for help, most of the time, without feeling, put off or feeling unintelligent for asking any questions. He maintained an A - B average thoughout this entire year.
I love the school I'm in. It sets many goals for me. All the seventh grade teachers are awsome.
