This is a great middle school! The PASS program is wonderful and their are so many extra activities offered here-from Robotics, to International Club, Art Club, Key Club etc. The teachers here are excellent and they absolutely have the students as top priority. The school nurse is superb and the office staff goes above and beyond to get things answered. Sports are great here also. Academically; they challenge students and prepare them well for higher education.
I am currently in eigth grade at Richview, and I love this school! I personally believe that it is the best middle school in the county. For the most part, the teachers are very good at their job. Of course there are those few teachers that some students don't like, but all of the teachers are very fair. Our principals are very kind. They make you respect them, but will also crack jokes and compliment you. The guidance counselors are amazing along with the rest of the staff. As far as the students go, Richview is a diverse school. Most of the students are what you would call "preppy" and do sports such as dance, cheer, golf, baseball, and football. Our sports team do very well, by the way. There are also some "ghetto" and "gothic/skater" type of people at this school. In my opinion, Richview isn't as cliquey as other schools. For the most part, everyone is nice to everyone here. There are many clubs provided as well, a few being Jr. Civitan, FCA, and art club. If you come to Richview, I promise you will have a good time, as long as you behave and show respect for everyone especially adults. I hope this helps! (:
If your child is not in a main stream classroom you can forget about your child getting the education they deserve. If your child has an IEP I would not recommend this school! They place labels on your children no matter how much you try to work with the school. Their is always an excuse why things can not be done to make your childs education better.
Some teachers single out children who have ADHD or even perhaps other issues and in turn my son has made straight F's all school year in one single grade because of it.I even so much as had two meetings done and helped with home work and emailed the teacher.Not pleased at my sons science teacher what so ever.I also have found Richview to be very displeasing by the fact every single time I have went in to pick my son up I was ID then another parent was not ID.And they some times joked about it and when I brought it up to their attention they should ID everyone regardless how often the parent picks up the child not just picking and chooses.At sometimes I felt my son was over whelmed with homework and also was told he should know these things when he asked for help from one teacher.
It has many programs to fit the needs of a very diversified student body. Parents are kept informed about their student and communication is very good. Teachers have a very caring attitude with students. Office personnel are always very welcoming and friendly. I am very pleased with this schools performance.
Richview is a very well organized school and people are way too hard on the sixth graders
I think the teachers there, think they know your kid and try to do whats best for them but really they have no idea what their talking about!
I started Richview last year. It has not been a horrible experience, but 7th grade is awful. The teachers give so much homework, and my back weighs in the 20's sometimes(lbs)! At our lunch we are to be silent,in the hallways silent, and in class silent. We never get to talk. My grades are decent but I am also very smart. The parent involvment is not very good. Parents are usually never there. The new principal is very nice, though, and is trying to make this a good year. I am very happy with the pep ralleys frequently! There are many academic activities available, but none that are very interesting. The related arts teachers are ok. I do not really perfer mine, but I have liked the ones I have had in the past. Richview is not very good. I will be happy to leave.
The academic programs in this school are very solid. Because of certain mandates, the extracurricular activities leave a bit to be desired. As a sixth grade mom I wasn't sure about the parent involvement, but have been very pleasantly surprised, as the teachers are very open to having the parents in a hands on roll during the day. The principal is very supportive to volunteers and has an open door policy to everyone. I am really pleased with the communication from the teachers. Over all, one of the better middle schools in our county.
My child had a wonderful start at Richview Middle last year in the 6th grade. He had amazing teachers who treated him as if he was their own. I hold his teachers in the highest regard and hope others will have the same experience this year as my child Cruises on into the 7th grade feeling confident and secure.Thanks Richview for allowing my husband and me to feel sure our child is getting the very best education. We have one more coming your way in a couple of years. Have a great school year.
I think that Richview has a wondeful academic program. They have some of the best teacher in montgomery county. They focus on each indivual childs needs. They have a good extracurricular program including Basketball, Baseball, and football. Im glad that I attends Richview Middle school. There is no other school in the county that i would rather attend. The classes are good class sizes, they are not over crowed so the teachers can work more with the students. My Middle school experience will be one that i will never forget.
