This is the worst school to go to . The teachers pick favorites and most likely if you didn't go to Clubview , the kids won't accept you . I didn't receive any bad reports of my child , until the very end of the year I learned she struggled in Spanish . The principal Dawn Grantham is shady and doesn't care at all . They should be ashamed of this school .
i loved this school! however, it may not be that great if you are a new student. most of the students have been together since kindergarten, and i'm not sure if they're willing to let you in to their group.
A grate school full of wonderful enriching teachers i hate to leave next year
I went to Richards for 6th grade. I thought it was okay. The teachers were sort of mean and alot of the students were too. The best part in the school day (other than going home) was connections. IF I got to choose I would not go there again
I was a student at Richards for 6th and 7th grade. You may be asking why not 8th. Richards is an 'OK' school, but even as a gifted student in the I.B program I was not challenged. Most of the teachers were unfair and picked favorites for the year. I would not reccommend this school.
This school is the best and as a former student I can say that they have the best teachers and their academic system is tremendous
I am also very impressed with the I.B. program that Richard's offers. My daughter is challenged and I feel it is bringing her to a new academic level! It is exciting to be part of such a good program. I do believe however, that there needs to be more disicpline in some areas.
I have been very impressed with how my daughter, who is gifted, has been challenged in the international baccalaureate program. As a parent, i don't want her to be bored, and even though she is smart, she is always learning something new and is being pushed to excel. This is the type of academic situation that gifted child needs to have and at richards, she is getting just that from caring, and teachers who are highly skilled in their field.
This school could improve on discipline, but the teachers are great.
