    LPS Richmond has the best teachers administrators and students in this City! I brought my daughter here from a private high school and realized I was wasting money having her in a private school! LPS is so much more dedicated to insuring she has a future and is preparing her for college. My daughter has even matured since attending this school. There is no cafeteria no big sports programs or any frills bells or whistles but if you want a quality education for your teen and teachers who care and are determined that your child attend college this is the place for you! The staff becomes your family and will really stick with you to see all goals through to the end.

    The students that attend this school are dedicated to going to college and are serious about their education. The majority of our seniors go on to college. The staff at LPS Richmond has made it a goal that everyone one goes to college and succeeds in college. I would like to invite students to our school that are serious about their education and want to pursue a higher education.

    Anonymous I've been a student of this schools for the past 4 years and despite the troubles that the school was facing for a school building it is the best school that I've ever attended. The teachers and the staff are truly motivational in helping the students make the choice to go to college and it's certainly has been the case for me. Not only that but the school also gives a taste of the real world when it comes to college with AP classes ranging from calculus spanish language spanish literature U.S history and English literature classes. As a student you develop good and sometimes even close relationships with the teachers. It can be a very personal education. I think i'ts a great school Just a little side note most of our seniors go to colleges like UCSD UCSB UCD Holy Names etc..

    I absolutely love this school!!! I've been in education for 6 years now and this is by far the best grops of kids and staff I've worked with. The teachers here are super committed to ensuring that every one of our fabulous kids goes on to college and in turn the students feel that enthusiasm and strive to do their very best. There is a real sense of community here which is why the teachers return and the students recruit their friends & families for our upcoming classes. Because LPS Richmond is a charter school spots are limited. Parents of 8th graders should really plan ahead and enroll thier children for the 9th grade as soon as they are able. If you want your child to succeed in an academically rigerous and safe environment look no further than LPS!!!

    Leadership Public School Richmond is like a blessing for the children in the community. At LPS Richmond the students find the academic support that they need to succeed in life. Now the students see that they too can go to a good college or university a vision that was not there before LPS. If you care for your child and want them to be successfull in life LPS is a good start to their adulthood. The principal dean teachers office staff and students are like a caring extended family. Students get all the academic help to pass the required courses for high school and to enter college. Monthly parent meeting are held to help keep parent in the loop of the events. Teacher can be reached by e-mail or phone to speak with parents regarding the different concerns about the student education and support needed.

    Talk about a great school you must check out Leadrship Public Schools in Richmond. I'm not too happy about the location but the school is awesome & has a teachers & staff that really care & hold the kids accountable. They also have a sunrise class & office hours to help the kids get the tutoring they need to suceed. Their goal is for every student to go on to college & they work hard to leave no student behind. I'm so impressed with this new school in Richmond & very greatful that they have hired a very qualified staff that really does have our kids best interests at heart. It's a small school so they really do get all the help they need the kids here are like one big family & they all help each other out! There is also community service which teaches them to give back.
