“The wider the range of possibilities we offer children, the more intense will be their motivations and the richer their experiences.”

Loris Malaguzzi, founder of Reggio Emilia’s Educational Philosophy

The International Baccalaureate (IB) at Richland

Richland is proud to be an International Baccalaureate® (IB) World School. We are an MYP candidate school and have been PYP accredited since 2018.

The Reggio Emilia Approach

This dates back to post-war Italy, in the northern region of Reggio Emilia. The people of Reggio Emilia came together to develop a meaningful way to educate their children, and to create a better future for their community.

Student's Voices

Richland students are kind, happy, confident and responsible. As a community we foster relationships with each other and our environment, based on respect and understanding.

Oct 3rd - Terry Fox Campaign Update
We did it!!!

A great big thank you to our generous Richland community. We didn’t just reach our goal of raising $2,300, we smashed it, raising $2,845 so far!

It was a great day for the children to support and learn about this important cause to aid cancer research. In addition to doing the run, there was also a team challenge to get a ball from one end of the piazza to the other without dropping it by connecting cardboard tubes.

As promised our students got to tape some of the teachers to the wall.
