Respect opinions of all who come their way. Greet none with hostility. Teachers need not deliver favoritism to those who are theirs.

Our School is very small and we have smaller classes. So each student get more individual attention. It was built over 75 years ago and has an amazing history. We are like a family everyone knows each other and their children.

Richard Hardy Memorial is a great school for both students and teachers. The smaller classrooms are ideal for greater learning and less behavior issues. The faculty, staff, and students are proud and excited about their school and learning.

This school changed a great deal when Mr. Barham took over. It just was not the same great school it once was. It really went down hill when Mrs. Mary Johnson left as principal. She was great, and my child loved her. It seemed the school lost much of its caring atmosphere after that. Priorities changed and academics suffered . My daughter ended up transfering to another school.

I use to be a student at this school as I had graduated two years ago. I went from Kindergarten through Second Grade and then came back for 7th- 12th Grade. The teachers are great and you relaly do get the attention you deserve. They are friendly and want to help. I would not go there till Barham and Henry are gone.

I am not a parent but I do have something to say about R.H.M.S. I currently am a R.H.M.S student. I am a freshmen and truly loving every day of it. I have been there since my Kindergarden year at R.H.M.s. I do not regret not going to a public or bigger school like Marion County. Yes, we are a small school but I like it that away. Im getting the best education that I will need for my higher years after my years at R.H.M.S. A good thing about a great school like ours, we do not have a dress code. We get to wear jeans, and hoodies, ect.Thats a great thing for us. B/c students do not like a dress code (example: polo shirts, and khakkis). I will miss this school after I graduate. I truely love and grew up here at R.H.M.S. Chasiti King c/o 2008

To start, i am not a parent but a previous student. I also, had the misfortune of being forced to leave r.H.M.S after 8th grade--of course 2 years later it had begun to expand into high school grades. I can say nothing negative about this school. From a student's standpoint, i never received anything but positive reinforcement and perpetual encouragement from both my teachers and my peers. Almost 14 years post 8th grade graduation, i still hold r.H.M.S as the strongest and most influential milestone in my educational career. At any rate, mary johnson, now principal, was my 7th grade homeroom and 5-8th grade english teacher. I still love her and cherish her as i do all of my teachers, until this day, and will never forget the 'disciplinary frienship' and respect she had once shown me as a student. Nichole thomas-r.H.M.S.

I went to elementary and middle school at RHMS back when the school only went through 8th grade. It was an awesome school to attend. It had a very tight knit atmosphere and the teachers were awesome. I had Mrs. Church as my teacher and she is still there. She is the best. I would highly recommend that you send your child to this school if you are considering it. I received a much higher quality education than I would have at another elementary school. My friends and I were much closer than other schools also.
