Moved here from TX. My daughter found 4th grade VERY challenging...a very good thing. The school has a very good range of activities, especially in music. I've been impressed with the staff. Zero issues with other kids in school, I'm very confident that problem kids are promptly dealt with. Most of all, there is no school communistic rules about which snacks the school deems healthy. A common sense, good school which I feel sets the standard! WOW!

Whitefish Bay has the ultimate schools. IRichards is a prep for the High School which dominated the State with a all time high score with a 26.5 ACT. It was number one in the state by over a point and with a score like that possibly tops in the Nation.

My granddaughter goes to Richards. She looks forward to going to school and does her homework enthusiastically. My grandson went there as well and is a very good student at the middle school.

This is our family's second year at Richard's. I cannot say enough in praise of this school. It is a very warm and welcoming-- as well as organized and well run. Our kids are thriving there. The parents are very involved, running school wide activities throughout the year.

Discipline is something that the principal is to soft handling it and the school district doesn't cooperate.

Richards School is a well-run neighborhood school north of Milwaukee. Specials such as art, PE, library, and music are available K4-5th--with orchestra in 4th and band available in 5th. Parents are very involved, with an active PTO and community life. Teachers are well trained and prepared to teach a high quality reading curriculum, including phonics and vocabulary instruction; the math program is Everyday Math and test scores are showing gains in problem solving--parents will need to supplement computation skills development.
