I think richalnd is a wonderful school as a student in the fourth grade currently Richland is under construction so it's going to be bigger and better from a students point of view Richland is wonderful


Posted March 5, 2014

I love this school and neighborhood. We have raised both of our kids here since birth, now ages 10 and 12. Over the years we have seen an amazing metamorphis in Richland Elementary... From recognized to exemplary with more involved parents and students from THIS neighborhood, teachers/staff/principal are amazing,excited, involved, and engaged. So sad we are going off to middle school.

Over 50% of the staff turned over after the 2012-13 year due to the management style of the administrators- including many of the teachers that had led the school to exemplary status.

I love this school. I had one child graduate from this school and one currently in this school. In my experience the communication between the parents and teachers were great. The teachers care and show concern about the children's progress.

This is a great school. With many different cultural backgrounds represented, my children will not grow up knowing only children that are the same as them. A lot of enrichment opportunities. More parents need to get involved, but I think their cultural background prevents them from doing so. An ad on is in the works to accommodate the growing neighborhood and community.

Great teachers and students who want to learn.

Posted July 31, 2009

My family and I moved from Colleyville to Richardson last year and my oldest boy went to Richland Elementay a P-6 school. My child went from a Explentary school to a Recognized school, the difference definitely showed up in his report cards and his attitude towards school. His grades went down dramatically, I know teachers take a lot of heat, but it just seems that they did not really care and they did not have the time. Also, the school is very old and dirty needing many upgrades, I know this because I am an Architect. From talking to other parents and reading other reviews about the middle school he will be attending, my wife and I will be moving back to the Colleyville area and I will just drive the long distance, it's better than the alternative of having to put them back in that horrible school district.

We have had an excellent experience with this school. The facilities are wonderful, and the staff and principal are great. We love the diversity and the community spirit of this area.

In spite of the efforts of some good teachers and administration, this school is pretty bad. It has been taken over by a very low class of people. Watching the way parents acted during various programs during the 2007-2008 school year, explained why the majority of kids there behave so poorly.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
