It is the goal of Richland Elementary to prepare students to be life long learners and contributing citizens in the 21st century. We believe that one of the most important lessons that education teaches is discipline. While discipline does not appear as a subject, it underlines the whole educational structure. Discipline is the training that develops self-control, character, and efficiency. It is the key to good conduct and proper consideration of others.
