    Love this school and the teachers! I am an alumni and pretty soon my daughter will be too! She loves her teachers and classmates. Rich Acres has a very warm and inviting atmosphere. And they're always looking for ways to get parents involved. I wouldn't want my daughter any where else! Plus Rich Acres recieved national recognition for their performance on the 2011 SOL tests! We are all so proud! Go Bucaneers!! )

    Both of my children go to this school. Rich Acres has a wonderful preschool program where the children get to go on all kinds of field trips. My son is currently in the preschool program and my daughter was in it last year. They absolutely loved it! The teachers at this school really care about our children and would recommend it to anyone who has a grade-school child.

    The teachers and staff are wonderful. They always provide for my children on a one on one basis. In meaning if they are having trouble in reading math etc. they have always had one on one care available to help them. I give this school an A+.
