I love St. Richard's. I have two children enrolled and could not be happier about the quality education they are receiving. The technology in our school is so far ahead of any other school I've seen. Our children are learning computer programs in kindergarten that some schools don't teach until high school. Teachers engage their students using their active boards and make learning an interactive, fun experience. The administration is wonderful and is always making sure that St. Richard's has the latest cutting edge technology, making our school exceptional. I can't say enough good things about SRS, it is a wonderful school.
when students are accused of taking pictures of teachers when they DID NOT do it, the teacher should be held accountable for her actions as the student are.
SRS consistently strives to improve everything that we do from teaching and caring for our students, to improved communication with parents and most important, spiritual growth for all. Our teachers are required to attend monthly faculty meetings, as well as weekly sometimes daily, communications between various grade level instructors. Our students are our main focus through regular academic courses, specials and after school clubs. Our students are involved in many activities such as Card and Letter writing for nursing homes, Fund Raising, Drum line, Spelling Bee Challenges, Math Competitions, Science and Lego Olympics, Church Choir and many more. We also produce a high quality Musical each year. Many of our clubs are not currently listed here so please contact our school for further information.
This school is awesome! I love the teachers and I am so glad they have an advanced math class.
My kids are learning a lot at St. Richard. They enjoy the teachers and are getting an advanced education. First grader is reading extremely well after only 3 months. Technology is highly valued, religious education is stressed, the teachers are highly accreditted. I don't think I've ever walked into the building and not been greeted warmly. Principal is friendly but, as principals are, a little daunting! Parents club offers info, hot lunches on wednesdays, gift certificates, family activities.
My expectations with the teachers have been highly met. They continually challenge students which allows them to prepare, plan and organize themselves for high school. The principals there are very fair but do not tolerate misbehavior. The negative comments that I have seen posted must have come from an angry parent who's child misbehaved too much and were disciplined for their actions. My children have the freedom to learn and not be interrupted by classroom trouble-makers, threats, or social issues that most schools face. Children are there to learn and be nurtured which is exactly what happens. They also know that there are consequences for their actions. SRS is a great school!
They have no idea anymore what teaching is. It has become a sit and listen, and do not question us. That's the attitude from the princiapl. This once great school now loses caring teachers because of this attitude. Someone please SRS it is about the childern
Sure..Seeing is believing. I am sure a great show is put on, but the truth is the school has had issues for years. Quality and concern for students has dropped. Seems with the letting go of experienced teachers to be replaced by cheaper new ones has caught up with them. They have no idea anymore what teaching is. It has become a sit and listen, and do not question us. That's the attitude from the princiapl to the parents.
Saint Richard school students, teachers and staff welcome visitors. Come and see what we do. Seeing is believing.
Too bad they are so busy investing in technology, and not our children. Principal has turned over a staff of long term knowledgable teachers to a group of 'newbies' afarid to do anything
We sent our daughter their for four years. We had nothing but problems and were let down by the teachers and principal. Our experience was that St. Richard failed us.
The curriculum at St. Richard ranks far above any other school in the area. Students leave SRS extremely prepared as they display great confidence, leadership, and excellence in and outside of their high school classrooms. The knowledge and faith based learning experiences last a lifetime.
Wonderful school. Everyone involved with the care of the children from the principal and teachers to the parents are wonderful. Great experience!
St. Richard School is the leading school in the diocese for technology, along with being named a benchmark school. Every tool has been provided to enable the teachers and students to keep current with changing technology. These tools, along with faith-filled, learning give an optimum place for a child to be. As a teacher and a parent of this school, I chose the best, and I am getting the best education possible for my children.
St. Richard School let me down twice. It failed me as a student back in the 70's and failed my daughter in the late 90's. I didn't see any caring or faith being taught. I enrolled my daughter because I wanted her to have Catholic schooling. After watching her grades go down and her become an unhappy child. The principal encouraged me to take my daughter to a different school, because they couldn't or wouldn't help her. She is advanced and was not getting what she needed. St. Richards answer to advancement is having the child sit in the hallway with a math book while the others are in the classroom. I would not recommend this school to anyone.
St. Richard is an excellent school. One indicator is how well students have done on the state-mandated ninth-grade proficiency tests. Over the period of years that they were given the eighth graders scored well above the norm. For years 100% of the students passed the reading portion of the test. The passage rate on the writing and citizenship sections varied from 96%-100%. The average for math and science varied from 88%-96% passage rate. Not many schools can claim this record!
We are so pleased that we have found the answer to a Christian education. My children are getting a faith-filled upbringing in a loving atmosphere. We couldn't recommend it higher. The teachers go beyond the requirements to see that our children succeed. They have given a foundation that has enabled our highschoolers to more than succeed. Superior!
St. Richard School has been identified by the Diocese as a Benchmark School. This means it is seen as a model of excellence in Catholic education. The principal has created a safe and spiritual environment for the children. During these tough economic times, the pastor has made continuous improvments in the school, increased salaries and kept the parish fiscally sound. Standardized test scores show that the 'average' student tests at least 2 grade levels above their peers nationwide. Ninety-five % of the 8th graders who apply to Catholic high schools are eagerly admitted. 'Academic Excellence Rooted in Gospel Living' identifies St. Richard School very well.
The students at this school are excellent. The teachers are hard working. The principals are dedicated. The parents go above and beyond to help in any way they need.
I have been a teacher at SRS for a number of years. I have found the faculty and staff very willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to do their best to meet all of the children's individual needs. This takes the help and support of both the school and the parents, it is a partnership. Teachers who teach in a Catholic school are there because they believe in Catholic education. Most Catholic School teachers are paid a lot less money than the public schools. Yet, they still do an outstanding job and work very hard.
