  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on September 24, 2009
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • I have had two children complete Kindergarten through 5th grade at Richardson Elementary and each of them, even though they are 5 years apart, gained all skills needed to prepare them for standardized tests and the school years to come. The teachers were very attentive and the principals were open to parent questions and involvement.

  • I don't know what this school is like now but when I was there it was a nightmare. I failed every single quiz I took in arithmatic during the 4th grade. The teacher never took the time to explain anything to me. They still passed me to the 5th grade. I continued until Highschool before I learned how to multiply and divide.
