Community Rating & Reviews

  • (10 months ago) is where you will find out more information about our school. As the Family Advocate since 2004 I have been proud to represent the school in matters of attendance recruiting home visits and working closely with the CEO Peppina Chang as needed. The state's API requires schools and districts to score 800 on a scale of 200 to 1 000 in standardized tests to meet California's proficiency target. Richmond scored an impressive 33-point jump in its API score from 795 to 828. "Our population is 100 percent students of color -- 50 percent African-American and 50 percent Hispanic " said Founder David Rosenthal. While most schools are open 180 days a year Richmond College Prep is open 205 days a year with activities including jiu-jitsu Gospel Choir and mindfulness training to help educate the whole child and the school also offers afterschool activities which include guitar folkloric and modern dance calligraphy Gate Art photography gardening drama as well as Spanish language arts and math review.

    I have two children attending Richmond College Prep one in third grade and the other in fourth grade. This is a wonderful school full of diversity. My daughter is in the school chior and my son takes Mexican Dance. I like the fact that there is no waiting list for the after school program my children are there until 5 30pm. By the time I pick my kids up they have completed their homework in the homework center. This is one of the best schools in Richmond.

    My son is in the first grade and goes to this school and so far what I've seen is that his teacher is dedicated to giving the students the best they can get out of their education. There is a lot of homework so be prepared to do some work with him/her once your child comes home after school. It is a very long school day so you have to have your child in bed pretty early (around 8 30/9 00) They offer a wonderful after school program if you don't mind keeping your child at school a couple of more hours per day. I would definitely suggest this school over other richmond schools in the area. You'll see the difference!
