The mission of Richwoods High School, a community of learners building upon its tradition of academic excellence, is to ensure each student reaches his or her academic and personal potential, and becomes an engaged, responsible, contributing citizen. This is accomplished by providing a safe and supportive environment that respects diversity and by guaranteeing a professional, dedicated, caring staff, working in partnership with students, families, alumni, and community.
We Make the Distinctive Difference:
Richwoods High School is a four-year, comprehensive school of approximately 1400 students. It is a special place of learning where students thrive in an atmosphere of excellence and achievement. Surrounding the spacious Richwoods terrazzo are the names and photographs of high achievers, championship athletes, and alumni in the military service-all mirroring the pride and long tradition of success one senses in this school. These intangible strengths are predominant: a sense of winning tradition reflected over the success of the past six decades and a "Richwood's mystique" embodied by our students. The learning environment at Richwoods High School is engaging and rigorous. Academic excellence is evident in all areas of instruction. Bright futures are in store for generations of Richwood's students.
Our experienced and dedicated faculty includes over a hundred certified personnel, most of whom hold advanced degrees. Our staff includes guidance counselors, assistant principals, a school nurse, a psychologist, a social worker, and a speech pathologist.
The diverse, highly motivated student population at Richwoods High School allows students to learn from and be challenged by one another, and to form life-long relationships.
The excellence demonstrated by students past and present challenges the student now and in the future to succeed in forging friendships, attaining educational objectives, and preparing for a productive life.
