There isn't really a wide range of academic programs and when I came to this school the consular didn't do a very good job explaining how the school system works.There isn't much involvement with the music class and the rest of the school, they should have a concert during school for those who cant make it after maybe they could raise some money. I don't really see parent involvement in the school. I would never advise anyone to come to this school, its the poorest quality school I have ever been to.

Richland may not be the best school, but it is a very good school just the same. The teachers are great and the principal is a hard worker. Though the rules are a bit strict, and some policies somewhat strange, Richland is still very exceptional. The staff tries very hard to reward good deeds, and is always putting the students first. The receptionist also does an awesome job, and I'd like to give her kudos for her friendliness and civilty even in the most uncomfortable positions.
