our core values


Students - Character

We establish an environment where every student will have a deep sense of belonging built on meaningful positive relationships with caring adults; on trust that has been cultivated and maintained; where students learn, play, explore and dream in environments where their cultures and voices are heard, respected and used to help them achieve their highest potential.


Student learning

We provide students an education with meaningful and appropriately challenging learning experiences. Engagement in such experiences results in the attainment of knowledge and skills that ensure success both in school and beyond

continuous improvement


We support and encourage continuous improvement through data analysis, feedback, and the ongoing effort to improve student outcomes. Richland Two promotes continuous improvement in its approach to excellence in schools and beyond. Students benefit from innovative methods that have been studied, vetted, and improved upon annually.
