HMS Richards has been a wonderful blessing to my two children and our family over the past 6 years they've been enrolled. The academics are excellent: incorporating music, outdoor education and project-based learning without neglecting the fundamentals. Most importantly, the teachers show a deep care and concern for each student and family. My kids know how much their teachers care about them! They instill Christian values into their curriculum and teach my kids about having a relationship with Jesus and building a Christ-like character every day!

This is an amazing school. Our kids love the teachers they learn from and the friends they have made. The school is academically challenging which has really pushed our kids to stay engaged and learning. At the same time, this school excels at tailoring the learning for each student so all students can succeed and grow. The teachers here are exceptional and really know how to make school fun and engaging. I also like the engagement with parents and the focus on community. I highly recommend this school.
