    "I also attended this school about 12 years ago. Indeed there were teachers who expressed an interest in the education of certain students. Then again there were those (teachers) who slept during class. I am happy for those of you who actually succeded but let me tell you, statistically, it is a very select few. Only a handful of people get good jobs and only in areas like computer maintenance and kitchen labor. This school does not offer anything promising. I always thought of it as a daycare for the older, more troubled youth. I am embarrased to have attended this high school. Just read the other reviews to get an idea of the type of education one recieved, i.e spelling & grammar. Then go read Whitney Young reviews. I wish my parents had let me attend Young when I got accepted upon graduating elementary school. Their ignorance in the importance of education and safety taught me to encourage my child to achieve all she can. All I can do is support her and work hard to give her what I was denied. I am extremely content to say she is in a very prestigious magnet school because I knew she did not belong in these neighborhood schools. I don't care how much it costs, I will help her."

    "I would have to definitely concur with Christian. I graduated from Richards In 2005 and I made the decision to strive for a higher education- attending college was not the eases thing for me coming from Richards but, it was not the teacher s fault in fact I will be the first to say I think we had great teachers it was just some of us, myself being one that picked and choose the things we thought were important. I really respect Richards a lot and I feel until you really understand the definition of growth you will have the negative attitude towards this institution as such."

    "well me as a student at richards career academy totally diagree with the rating that they gave my school. Yeah it might not be the most great looking school and there are some students there that could careless about getting educated. But theres actually students that care and do there work maybe not alot but it all depends on the student not the school. The school dose not decide on the actions the students take to benifit themselfs, it all depends on the student. somecare some dont simple as that. some complain about how bad the school looks and how the school dose not get enought funding but the truth is that it really dosent matter how good the school looks as long as theres books to learn and teachers that are willing to teach.thanks to the culinary career i've had many great experiances that will benifit me in the future."

    "Agreed, many of the teachers strive to provide the best academic education possible. This is not to say that all teachers do the same. The worst part of this school is its location. I remember the many fights that took place in school. I would not recommend anyone to attend this school."
