  • I would have to say that the schools in Richland are in my opinion the best in Rankin County. My children are army brats and have moved around quite a bit. After enrolling them at Richland they are all thriving and doing great.

  • Many of the teachers in this school are just there to draw a paycheck. It is evident from their attitudes that they have no interest in actually teaching the students. I have had two children in this school and if I had known what it was like before I moved here I would have kept looking before buying a home here. If you care anything about your children DO NOT put them in this school.
