Richard Bowling Elementary School is filthy there are rodents running over desks while children are in class. i would never take my child here. The children simply don't care. The teachers try to help but the students make it nearly impossible to be helped. One of the few teachers who do care is Mrs. B. Vail. During the summer kids were afraid to go to camps there since there were cockroaches and rats running like crazy behind sinks and in bathrooms.

Richard Bowling Elementary formerly Bowling Park Elementary Schol is a very excellent mecca for education. Mrs. Shepherd along with her staff and teachers are very dedicated in regards to education and don't mind going the extra mile when it comes to children and their parents. There are always activites that are going on throughout the school to broaden the children's horizons and the school just doesn't refer to the children as students..they are refered to as scholars. This school rocks!
