Richards Elementary School Reviews
This school offers great class sizes and the chance to really teach students. It has new technology and focuses on the character development of the students as much as on the academic scores. Percentages listed are greatly affected by the class size for rankings. In a small school like ours, one single student represents 10 - 20% of the class. So, rankings do not represent the district in an apple to apple situation when compared to much larger schools. We are currently undergoing a much needed improvement to infrastructure (HVAC and windows replaced), which will make classrooms much more comfortable and less noisy than in the past. Students and staff are very active in extracurriculars.
