    First off some fantastic teachers. But the school is still finding its footing since the merger with Davis. Although referred to as a school with an enhanced educational environment the school has seen a sharp drop in test scores in just one year specifically math. The students have an extra 45 minutes in their day the ability to take foreign language and ipads...and should be leading the district but find themselves behind every other school in the district. And it has nothing to do with the makeup of students or esl students. The building is at capacity already and will be facing more issues when the growing class sizes move here from Davis. I do have students in the school and feel that keeping face over a controversial merger has taken president over the focus of education.

    Richmond is a great school just like all the other schools in St Charles. For anyone who reads this that is not from our community the reason this school shows a low rating/scores is due to the higher number of non-english speaking students that attend this school. The education and teachers here are great. The students that speak english test just as high as the students at all the other local elementary schools. Unfortunately the high number of students that do not have english as their primary language upon entering this school have dragged the scores down. There is a high sense of community leadership and pride in this school. The commitment to helping the non-english speaking students is amazing. I am very happy that my children will have the added benefit of foreign language in their curriculum which none of the other elementary schools offer as well as a sense of diversity which is lacking in all the other local schools.

    All of the information located on this website is dated. Richmond School has been reconfigured to serve 3-5th grade students. This was instituted in 2011. Younger children (k-2) attend Davis School. When the two schools were combined the Principals were changed The teaching staff changed and the demographics of the student population changed. Some of the programming is unique to District 303. You will want to gather information through another format. My star rating is reflective of the current ratings. I do not currently have a student attending this school.

    Richmond is a great school with a great staff and small class sizes. You can't say that about any of the other St. Charles elem. schools. If you are afraid of a diverse environment then this school is not for you. If you want your children to be surrounded by caring and highly qualified educators then your child would be lucky to attend Richmond.

    I am very happy with this school and the teachers they are very friendly trying very hard to do the best the students are filling comfortable with the teachers. The principal is like a friend to everyone always listen and doing his best.

    Richmond Staff provide an excellent example of teaching at its best. They are dedicated caring and always there to listen. The atmosphere in the school is one of friendship and fun the smaller class sizes are an extra bonus. I couldn't be happier with the teaching that my daughter is receiving there.

    Great school! Great Staff! Small class sizes make for a better learning environment. So glad to see all 'those' families leave! Good luck to them in classrooms with 30+ kids!

    I disagree with every bad review including many have their facts incorrect. Teachers that left retired not quit. Those that are here and are new are dedicated to servicing all children. The school is not denying entry to kids because of test scores it is due to class size because the population of all of St. Charles is expanding. Test scores if you look may be lower than the rest of St. Charles but are among the highest in the state including the surrounding communities. I believe that the parents who do not like this school have an axe to grind because of boundry issues and predjudice. This is a great school!

    As posted in other reviews this school is going downhill fast. Many parents can't wait to get their children out of this school. The school seems to be very biased towards educating the spanish speaking population. We are very nervous about the test scores and our children not being at the same level as others when they reach middle school. Another interesting fact is that the teachers leave here in droves and many will not participate in any 'extra' school enhancing activities.

    My child will be here now for three yrs. The first was very good. I loved it. The teacher and how my child was coming home happy. The second was not so good. I was not very pleased with the teacher. How they handle situations that include your child. I was not happy with how my child now wanted to stay home some of the times. You would wonder why I still have my child here. Financially I can't support him to go to another school. I just pray that this yaer will be better. Some parents like it. But a lot of us don't and just have to deal with it for all different kinds of reasons.

    This school is going down hill fast. St. Charles has tagged this school as the primary English Language Learner (ELL) school. While this helps many students learn to speak English it takes resources away from traditional teaching. That is why Math and Reading scores are dropping (see test scores on this web site) Many parents who do not wish to take advantage of the ELL programs are trying to move their children out of this school. However transfers are being declined because a large number of students leaving would drop the test scores even more. Look for this school to fail to meet AYP and parents opting to move their children out by the masses in the next year or two.

    This school is a good school. My son attend this school for his 4th grade year. He really fit in well. The kids and teachers were very welcoming.
