    I do Not like Richter Elementary They are not friendly Do not take care of issues Don't communicate with you very well My son has been picked on in that school and my son seems to get in trouble for everything. Teachers dont tell you anything till its to late

    I actually like this school. never had a problem even when my kid was absent. the teachers are partnering up and my kid liked both teachers... had lots of fun and this is her last year there

    they call you and send e-mails if your child is absent from school sick to check on them-they send out auto messages to inform parents that a child was absent from school that day and to tell parents about any updates.they are a small town school that gives each child devoted attention and involve the parents in every way.Friendly and kind and very supportive.they work hard to help the students acheive and excell. I have twin boys and they both love the school and their teachers )
