Open Quote I have three children in Richlands Primary, one with special needs. This is an excellent school. I am proud to send my children here. The Staff and Faculty are top notch. A large portion of the students are parents of Marines who are stationed at nearby Camp Lejeune, so I'd say discipline is above average in the classes. My youngest child attending this school was originally diagnosed with developmental delays, which allowed him to get into a pre-k program as a three-year-old. After two years in that program, he was able to start Kindergarten the week of his fifth birthday, already proficient in reading and writing. This is largely atributed to the individual attention he was given by the specialsts at Richlands Primary. The school itself is relatively new and very clean. Co-located with the high school, it is surrounded by playing fields and playgrounds. My children love going to this school. We've had opportunities to transfer out of the area, but one of the main reason we hesistate is because our kids are having such a good experience at Richlands Primary. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
