I currently have two children at this school and one in middle school who completed all of his elementary years there. This is a great school with outstanding teachers and leadership. I've been very pleased, and my children have done very well.

My son attended Ritch Elementary for four years. He had the most amazing teachers throughout his elementary carreer at Ritch! I truley believe that he was challenged and motivated by the talented teachers that educated him during his four years at Ritch. His adventure going into middle school this fall is a very exciting one. The teachers and staff at Rich are a very important part of his past that will provide an exciting future for him as he continues his education in the Paulding School District

Outstanding school! Fantastic student teacher ratios - my son is in Kindergarten there and has done exceptionally well. This school also offers a good variety of programs to keep the children well-rounded; for example, Fitness Fridays. The children can come to the school 30 mintes before start time and go to the gym for a huge dance, yoga, fitness session led by the school's gym teacher. EXCELLENT!

I have two children at Ritch Elem. One of my boys is in resource with Mrs. Roddy and he loves it. He has made a hugh improvment returning to her class. My oldest son is in the 3rd grade and is reading in a 5th grade level. He loves school and enjoys going every day. He loves to learn and I believe that they are getting the academics requirments they need. I would recommend any child to go to this school.
