    "I was scared to go to high school at first but Richwoods welcomed me with open arms. There are plenty of resources for students and plenty of things to do whether its a club, sports or band. Students were able to tutor other students. There were volunteer opportunities like pen pals and bark in the park."

    "I appreciate all Richwoods has done for me. It is a fairly diverse compared to the other high schools in the district and there is something for everyone. There are a lot of clubs and organizations, especially for the under-represented, so there's always new people to meet and new friend groups to form. However, Richwoods does revert to rather "ghetto" ways at some points in time and can be an adjustment for someone not used to that environment. I think it's a better high school in the area; however, once compared to high schools in surrounding cities, it no longer ranks as highly."

    "I attended Richwoods for 4 years. I recently graduated in 2016 with my Diploma. My overall experience was well. I did a lot while I was at Richwoods. If I could change anything it would be the administration and the attention on the extracurricular activities."

    "Ever since the initiation of my education at the school, I had faced numerous instances of bullying. Throughout my time in 9th grade and 10 grade, the severity of it was to a minor degree. However, as I progressed into 11th and 12th, everything changed. I was degraded for my rather slim physical size, my lack of athletic ability, and even my own political views. After attempting to communicate with the teachers and staff, I was promised that my struggles would be halted before their severity increased. However, no alteration in the behavior of said bullies occurred, and I remained in such a pattern of being bullied and addressing the issues for the rest of my presence in the school. Since then, I have moved out of the state, and in all honesty, I am pleased to be gone. If you wish to send your children here, you may take your chances. However, be prepared to face possible social struggles as I did at Richwoods High School."

    "I've really enjoyed my time at Richwoods, especially with the switch of the new principal. I feel like I am in an open-minded environment and there's a diversity in students that can't be compared to the other schools in the district."
