My child attends RES & is in Kindergarten. She loves it and never wants to miss! I have nothing but praise for all the teachers, administrators, aides, etc... That we have come into contact with. My daughter has learned so much, most importantly, wants to be there.

First day to school they wouldn' t even let me walk my 4 YEAR OLD to her class. They we're very unprofessional and so my child and I walked out, she's now somewhere, where her surroundings and staff will except her and are more and welcome to have parents. Would not recommand this school to anyone, especially if its a small child or toddler. God bless.

My brothers, myself, and my husband have all attended RES in the past, and now that we have a child of our own, RES is the school we chose out of 3 others surrounding us. We chose Richlands Elementary because it has a wonderful staff that cares about the students and encourages parents to be involved with everything. Also, the Principal and Vice-Principal were teachers at one time so they have the knowledge to deal with children. They also worry about the kids safety and to me that means a lot.

Richlands Elementary School is one of the best schools in it's division. The teachers are very qualified and professional, and the principal cares about the children and thier education. This school has come a long way in the last several years and I am proud to have my child attend Richlands Elementary School.

I do not like this school at all. Most of the teachers do not have the patience to deal with the kids and the principal all she worries about is the test scores not the needs of the kids. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

Our child got a very good education at Richlands Elementary School. Although a very small community the professionalism of the teachers was high and our child was always encouraged to go beyond the average in both math and reading. The teachers were also interested in finding the kid's interests and nurturing them. Our kid was for example given a very cool planetary globe to present the 9 known planets to the other kids in the classroom.
