In order to help our students, teachers and staff be the best they can be, Richard Allen Schools also identify best practices within our schools and within the education arena to ensure that our teachers and staff use methods that help children not only succeed academically, but also instill in our students a lifelong love of learning.

Caring, Innovative Teamwork

The teachers of Richard Allen Schools understand that their primary responsibility is getting students to believe in themselves. This is accomplished by creating and communicating a positive attitude about students — that they are special. A positive classroom environment creates an atmosphere that encourages students to learn. This caring aspect is not only to be carried out in the classroom environment but in every aspect of the school. Students, teachers, staff, parents and partners will know that to the Richard Allen School District everyone is important — everyone is special.
