My children have attended RCS since Kindergarden. Every teacher we have had has been an amazing example for my children. The teachers are very committed to what they do and it's clear they are there because they love the children. It's not a job for them it is a calling and a mission. I am thankful to every one of them and the time and attention they have poured into my children. My kids have excelled academically and I am thankful for what the have NOT learned in public school.

I am a mother of a wonderful daughter who now attends RCS. I graduated from RCS many years ago. RCS gave me a secure foundation, good education, but more importantly it gave me a very strong faith, belief and relationship with the Lord. After graduation, I choose to go into the medical field so I could help and minister to others. I did not have any problems getting into a great university and medical school. In fact, I did quite well. My daughter is also enjoying attending RCS. She is learning a lot and is enjoying the art and music programs they have. Her teachers are very intelligent and have teaching degrees and a lot of them have masters. These teachers show the children God's love and teach them with a lot of tenderness, love and compassion. RCS is so blessed to have such wonderful, caring Christian teachers. It is located on 33 acres of land, large cafeteria, beautiful chapel and gym, large computer room w/28 computers.

Richmond Christian School has been in existence for the past 60 years. It is NOT affiliated with any denomination, but it is a Christian school based upon God's Word.. Our daughter graduated from RCS and had no problems getting into a fine university and then Medical school. Our granddaughter is presently attending RCS and loves it. All the teachers have degrees and are licensed., and they love the children and it shows. The academic program is excellent and accredited. RCS is located on 33 beautiful acres. The classrooms are nicely decorated and the school has been recently updated. It has a large cafeteria, beautiful gym, and a lovely chapel. It also has a large, well equipped library, computer lab, an active music, art, and sports departments, as well as lots of other extracurricular activities. We are so thankful and grateful for RCS's commitment and standards.

Richmond Christian School has been a blessing for our whole family. Our son has been enrolled at RCS since Kindergarten and this is our 3 year at the school. RCS is fully accredited and provides quality academics, which is very important to us. But what speaks volumes are the students! From elementary to high school, RCS students have a great sense of commaraderie. And like a previous reviewer posted, the older students are mentors to the younger students and it is impressive to witness those relationships. The faculty and staff truly care about the students. If you are looking for a great place for your child to go to school, come check out RCS!

We have two children (5th grader and 1st grader) at Richmond Christian School and we highly recommend it. The teachers are student focused but what really impresses us is how the older students are true mentors to the younger students without even knowing it. When the high school students see the younger students at a sporting event or other school function, they take time with the younger children. It has been a great experience for both of our children.
