    I am an alumni of this school. I've been going to this school since Kindergarden and have enjoyed going here. It was a great school to attend. The teachers are the greatest and inspired me to become a teacher when I graduate from High school in 2 years. My aunt and uncle and mother had gone to Richmond Avenue School and loved going there especially me.
