I have had 3 children go through Old Richmond Elementary School and I have been more than pleased with the education level they all received. As well as the personal growth I was able to observe with each one, becoming self confident and very secure with their selves. Old Richmond has always had the best teachers for education and helping a child become all they can.

We moved from Arizona this year and I couldn't be more impressed with ORES. My children are very happy here even though they are expected to be polite and responsible and respectful. Kindness is huge here :) The staff are proficient in what they do and the principal will go out of his way to help. Moving from AZ my daughter was not up to par for 2nd grade being the youngest in her class. On the first day of school I kept her out and spoke to the office staff and they said it wouldn't be problem keeping her in 2nd grade again especially because it fit with her age. The principal greeted me and my daughter and was wonderful in placing her in a 2nd grade class within 15 minutes on the first day of school! I was really impressed with her teacher also. She is a very hands on teacher which is awesome and she is learning so much this year even though she is repeating the grade. I have a first grader who had serious anxiety in kindergarten, but is thriving here! And my 4th grader who is usually board is being challenged by his regular teacher and his AG teacher who we love! Great school because of high standards and values and a staff to go along with it!

We moved from out-of-state at the end of my daughter's kindergarten year and chose our home largely because of how much ORE's staff and principal impressed us. Staff are dedicated, caring, well-supported, have very low turn-over/attrition, and give attention to each child's needs. Our daughter's first grade teacher was the absolute BEST--experienced, approachable, excited, and absolutely a joy. I would recommend ORE to ANYONE moving to the Winston-Salem area!

I visited every school I could when trying to find a home school for my boys. Some schools I left crying. Old Richmond Staff scooped me up and I have never thought twice, not once, about another school. What a fabulous experience we have had here. I cannot say a single bad thing about this school and I am involved. Old Richmond is THE best choice. With regard to the car line in other reviews, some schools block traffic for lengthy periods to even get onsite. At least here we are not out on the roads. The parking is an issue, but it all works out. And, it is well worth it! Bless the staff and students of Old Richmond! May we continue to trudge forward with all the obstacles put forth and continue the focus of the real reason we all do this...the children.

My daughter has been at ORE for the last 2 years and is really thriving. The teachers seem to really care about the students. Although her teacher this year is a little "laid back" for my taste and doesn't communicate things in a timely manner, my daughter is doing great in her math and reading. The PTA is really involved and ORE has a very small town feel. Even the bus drivers are very concerned about the students and won't let them off the bus if they don't know the person picking them up at the bus stop.

Old Richmond is truly a great school. I have a 1st and 3rd grader that absolutely love their school and their teachers. All of the staff members are great--very friendly. We are very fortunate to have a small, loving school right in our own community.

My 5 year old loves kindergarten and her teacher and assistant are the best women to work with this age group out of any that my oldest daughter had previously in OR. They are patient and caring. They never make us feel unwelcome. They make the classroom setting exciting and fun and are so encouraging they inspire me! If they could mold these 2 women, every 1st time experience for young learners would be an absolute blessing!

I love the school and more importantly so do both of my boys. I have a third grader and kindergartener in OR, both of my boys seem to be thriving at OR. I agree that if your child is a car rider like mine are that you have to be very patient since the car lanes are virtually non-existant but beyond that the small older school has a real family feeling to it and I wouldn't wish to change a thing.

This is our first year at ORES. We have nothing but wonderful things to say about the school. My 5 year old is absolutely in love with his teacher-thank goodness, because he is very finicky. The parking situation is a real headache, but the principal actually gets out there every afternoon no matter the weather and helps with traffic herself. She also knows the car-riding children by name. For example, my husband went to pick up our son for the first time and she didn't recognize him, so she took the time to stop and ask who he was. She really, really cares about the safety and well-being of each child.

Old Richmond is a very warm and welcoming school. The teachers are caring and seem to really want their students to succeed. I'd also improve the carpool area to make it quicker for us parents.
