I was a new student to Richland high school last school year (2014) and I'd have to say the school was not welcoming at all. I don't feel at home here and the teachers don't even try to connect with the students. actual learning wise I was getting much better grades at my school back east. this school makes me cry daily because it makes me miss my old school.

I had four children attend Richland high school and receive a great education and all four of them went on to get a collage degree.

Here it goes. I am a former RHS student and want to say that it is a really good school. I can's say it's the best (even though that's how I feel) because I have not attended any other schools in the area (even though I am enrolled at Southridge, I do full-time college and Tri-Tech). When I came to USA in 9th grade, I had met great support from all the teachers, and had been helped a lot. I would not agree that the grading is too easy, it probably depends what class level you are taking. The teachers are great and are very supportive, make learning fun and interesting. They have prepared me well for college. I also love the school grounds, along with Hanford High they are the most beautiful of the Tri-Cities high schools. About which school is better... It is hard to be objective here, but it is thought to be one of the best, along with Hanford High and Kamiakin High, maybe Southridge HIgh too. Overall, the days at RHS have been the best, and I miss them

Being a bomber is prideful! Mostly everyone gets along and isn't rude to people they usually wouldn't hangout with! The teachers and other staff are great!! And we usually dominate in sports!! GO GREEN AND GOLD!!! :)

Richland High is amazing, it offers a good education, and the sports are amazing. We pretty much dominate Hanford. We take pride in our school, and pretty much everyone gets along. WASL test scores for hanford and rhs go hand in hand every year.

I suspect, like many Schools, Richland High is able to encourage the gifted students with AP Classes and many Jr and Seniors are able to take classes at the local community college. There seems to be help for those students who struggle, but there is not enough help for those students who need a little extra help to be successful. These students who just a little behind do not get the necessary help so that they will be successful. Also too much focus is on the WASL. Many of the classes are teaching to this test and ignoring other aspects of education. I also believe that grading is way too easy.

Pretty Good school where the kids for the most part all get along and not have to worry about violence all the time.

Like most schools RHS has some outstanding teachers and some who are just buying time untill retirement. I feel that the grading is too easy. My son is lazy, doesn't do great work and doesn't spend much time studying , yet he is listed on the honor roll. I am impressed with the music and art programs but in many cases the sport teams are based on who you know rather than ability. Too many kids who should be going to Hanford High are allowed to go to RHS to play sports. This hurts the program at Hanford and eliminates some RHS students from participating at RHS.
