    This is a great school. The principal listens and respects the children and parents. The secretaries are kind and helpful as well which makes it nice for parents when making a call to the school. I have had great communication with the teachers and the school which makes it great for parents.

    All 3 of my children have attended Richardson. It is a wonderful school with very dedicated teachers and employees. My husband and myself enjoy volunteering in the class room. It is a very rewarding and enjoyable time.

    richardson is a wonderful school for growing minds and there is music vocal and band and they have a track meet for the 3rd 4th and 5th graders the parent involment is very well they have a carnival yearly and there are plently of parents that volunteer their time to go on the field trips and what activities they offer... they have teachers willing to work with a special needs child as well and they give there time to them one on one when its needed and the area 16 is a great group to help those children that need it ! they treat the kid with respect and give proper authority to those whom need it and the k-1 classes that they offer for those who need something like that are wonderful all 3 of my children where in them and i would tell them to also put theres in.
