  • A terrible school. All I encountered here are gangs. Most of the kids are stupid. You go to any other school and the kids are 100 times better. If you want to know how stupid the kids at Richard L. Graves Middle School really are, read these kids' reviews from other websites. You will see that their lack of basic spelling and grammar skills speaks volumes. And these are "honors kids"? The "honors classes" are a joke! DON'T GO HERE!

  • Richard L. Graves is a HORRIBLE school and is located in a HORRIBLE community. Both are overrun with gangs. The school has this bogus "honors" program that isn't "special," like people claim. Rather, you go to any other school and those classes wouldn't even be average. I didn't have anyone to warn me like I'm warning you now. Go to a decent school like East Whittier.

  • Richard L. Graves Middle School should be closed down and burned. The teachers are actually quite good. It's the work ethic. They have the Honors students doing the same work as the lower kids, just a little sooner. And they put all the pressure on the Honors students to raise the test scores. I mean literally. They actually told us that.

  • I think this school is a really good environment for learning and very fun especially in sports. I loved going to my daughter's games. The teachers are great and patient. I really recommend it for everyone.

  • I think Richard L. Graves Middle school is a very terrible school. The learning profile of the students is underageable. I have a sister who goes to this school right now and comments how she hates Graves so much she crys. The gang members are highly at this school.
