Welcome to the RES family! I hope you are ready to experience an amazing school year. Our theme this year will be “Setting the Stage for Success” and our staff is working hard to prepare engaging and rewarding learning experiences for all students. We look forward to seeing our returning 1st grade families, and we are excited to get to know our new kindergarten families. At RES, we place high value on our partnership with parents, families, and community and we invite you to be an active part of helping students to achieve their full potential.
The mission of Richland Elementary, the foundation of educational excellence, is to champion the development of the whole child distinguished by
-A cooperative community of diverse learners.
-An environment intentionally designed to ignite each child's natural curiosity
-A wealth of academic and social experiences.
-Relationships built on trust, respect, and care for others.

Richland Elementary School

Richland Elementary School was one of 10 recipients for the state school board district and state regions for private schools chosen to receive the 2018 Safe Schools Initiative Award of Excellence by Attorney General, Steve Marshall.
“In these times, we are all intensely aware of the serious responsibility our schools carry for the safekeeping of our children,” said Attorney General Marshall. “The Alabama Safe Schools Awards of Excellence is an important tradition of the Attorney General’s Office, to recognize schools throughout our state for dedication and excellence in keeping students safe. Each day that parents leave their children at school, they are entrusting what they hold most precious into the care of schoolteachers, principals, school resource officers and other staff. With these awards, we honor those who have achieved particularly high standards and set examples that others may follow. We are grateful for their service and commitment to protecting the children of Alabama.”
