    Being a two year substitute teacher who has seen many schools in Lincoln and Ouachita parish I feel qualified to say this is the most notorious school in the area. There is a reason this place does not keep a full staff of teachers and has a hard time even finding substitutes to fill in. Richwood Middle is plagued by students with severe behavioral problems who make it almost impossible to teach anything. For the full-time teachers here this job is truly a work of love. The school receives one star from me for being a very new and clean facility. Additionally the faculty is very nice if not worn down as well. Other than that there are no redeeming qualities to be found here. It's riddled with "last chance" teachers who have been kicked out of school elsewhere only to end up here. The students are just bad. There is no other way to put it. If the fact that they still get "paddlings" isn't a testament to this I don't know what else is. Corporal punishment or paddling is the main form of discipline. What's worse is that kids take this is a joke...they welcome it. All in all it's the worst school in the area and you must be brave to try and teach there.

    Richwood Jr High is a great school! The best thing about a small school is the huge home town pride! There is a sense of community because eveyone knows one another. The teachers have a greater chance of getting the students excited about learning.

    This school is very cool to be in and if you put you kid in it they will love it as much as I do please support Richwood Junior High 'Where Success Is Expected'.
