Richmond Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

November 10, 2016 Submitted by a community member
I have heard from others that Richmond has undergone many changes in the last 2 years. A new principal came in, Bonney Dietrich. From what I can see, she is excellent. She brought a great deal of positive change to the environment of the school. The teachers seem genuinely happy to work at Richmond. Every teacher I pass in the hall or by their classrooms are smiling and positive. Mrs. Dietrich has implemented a rewards program as well as a behavioral toolbox that seems to work well with students. My student has used this toolbox at home for conflict resolution with siblings and I've been impressed by its successful impact at the school and at home.Mrs. Dietrich impressed me with her productive attitude. She saw a problem with parent pick-up logistics and immediately set to work to fix the problem. Later, another problem arose and she again was out evaluating and giving direction to fix the situation. Not all principals are as involved or as caring about the success of their students, staff and families.I have also had numerous positive experiences with my student's teacher, Mrs. Bamford. She is a wonderful teacher who instills excitement for learning and knows how to address the needs of the various levels of learners. My child comes home telling me all sorts of great stories and experiences from the classroom. My child feels safe and is excited to go to school each day. Mrs. Bamford communicates information to parents through a weekly newsletter and Remind App. She is always willing to communicate with the parents of a student and addresses any needs quickly. I voiced a "would be nice if..." and Mrs. Bamford had unexpectedly fulfilled it within a day. Needless to say, I was impressed. She has great classroom management and created a wonderful learning environment. My child's PE and music teachers are also excellent. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I was scared to send my child to Richmond after reading online and all the negative things I've heard from others. But, I have only had positive experiences. Richmond seems to have turned a corner. CRITICISM:The restrooms need a major remodel. I would rather my child not wash their hands than touch the disgusting dribbling water that barely escapes the water outlet of the wash basin. You have to touch the center outlet to get your hands wet, it's really nasty.

I love this school. It's amazing to see how hispanic parents get involved in theirs students' studies and assignments. I can greatly say that I'm utterly happy with this school. I'm a binational teacher and I love Richmond and its staff.

I love Richmond Elementary school. I'm a freshman in college who goes there to help in a classroom. The atmosphere and motivation from all those I work with is amazing.

The school is without focus, which is directly attributable to the Principal. It is strange how 4th Graders, who should be getting daily homework have none, while 2nd Graders are being overly burdened with multiple daily assignments. There also appears to be a lack of empathy with reagards to minor injuries. A simple bandaid does a lot to address the psychological aspect of pain, and allows a student to focus better on the tasks at hand.

I have taught for 37 years, some of those years in huge Districts like LA and some in little tiny Districts, like Detroit, Oregon. I have a taught every grade level from K-12. So I feel qualified to rate a school. Richmond School is outstanding in its leadership, energy, determination to help every single child reach their potential, in caring about the daily lives of children, in modeling positive behavior and in bringing together a professional, experienced, cohesive staff that cares very much about this school. Every day is used to continue reaching our highest potential, to become one of the most successful elementary schools in this state. Most Sincerely, Diane Millican
