    First of all the new security system at the school is unconstitutional. By making volunteers submit to a background check is making the volunteers GUILTY before innocence. The roll out of Common Core was hidden on the backside of another announcement that came home in the backpacks. Mr. Augustyn did away with the best assembly at RGS the Veterans Day assembly. What better way to teach our kids about freedom and honor our heroes? But no Mr. Augustyn decides to not teach the students that invaluable lesson. Good luck to the remaining students at RGS. Because of the unconstitutional security system and the Common Core Curriculum I pulled my children from RGS.

    RGS is not an empathetic community for learning. It does not reach out to the needs of all students. It appears that the principal only adheres to the needs of certain families. This old boys network needs to be put to an end. We need new leaders that will embrace the community as a whole and not cater those with certain last names. Every student deserves a fair education that embraces them for who they are. Bring back Judy and Jim.

    We agree with the last review. It is a shame that a great leader like Mr. Block was not given the opportunity to lead a once great school. seems liketypical practice in schools where it is not What you know but who you know that brought about this change. It is a wonder why many families are opting to enroll their children in private schools. It is a shame that a once great school can decline so fast.

    I can't say enough good things about RGS. With what they have left to work with this school comes out on top. Hopefully we can keep the great teachers that truely care for the kids. I'm very happy with the band and music programs the kids really enjoy it too. I'll be sad when all my kids have to move on.

    I went to Richmond and it's a great school. I left three years ago and my little sister attends now. I now attend Nippersink Middle School which is just as good as Richmond I just wish I could go back but I can't.

    Most of our teachers are outstanding - network and ask for a particular teacher. Our teacher this year is super! Our Principal is great too lives in our town and is very involved. The district is having financial problems because of poor planning. The superintendent is really bad and is doing nothing to change spending. Our school does have unnecessary programs that take away time for the core subjects - the school needs to stick to the basic 3 R s and do that well before adding anything else. The assistant principal seems to be more of a create work position she does work in the cafeteria and hand out milk. We have the biggest PTO meetings every many great parents and volunteers.

    Richmond Elementary School is excellent! The teachers are all dedicated and they make sure each child receives the help or extra work that they need. Although they have had to cut back on some programs and reduce the amount of teachers because of budget cuts they still remain focused on giving your child an excellent education. My children love this school and look forward to going every day. I really appreciate the great job that the principal assistant principal and teachers all do every day. They really care about the children's education.
