Richland One Students Excel Through Diverse Programs

Check out the Fall 2019 Back to School Issue!

In Richland One, we don’t believe that one size fits all. We don’t believe that all children learn in the same way. We do believe that offering students more exciting and diverse educational choices will lead to greater opportunities as they prepare for college and careers.

Elementary students can learn to speak and write in Spanish and Mandarin Chinese, as well as in English, through our Language Immersion Program. Students will also be exposed to the power of art infused academics through the expanded arts program at Logan Elementary.

Middle school students can explore the health care field through our Medical Magnet Academy at W.A. Perry or the child-centered educational approach of the Montessori program at W.G. Sanders.

High school students can pursue an internationally recognized diploma through our International Baccalaureate Diploma Programs. Through career and technical education programs, high schoolers can earn a Firefighter I certification at Lower Richland High School or a commercial driver’s license at Eau Claire High School.

These are just a few of the unique learning experiences that our students can take advantage of in Richland One. To explore all that Richland One has to offer, visit richlandone.org.
