As Superintendent of Richard Allen Schools, I am honored to have the privilege of serving our students, families, and the citizens of our community. Our commitment is to ensure equity and excellence for all students entrusted to Richard Allen Schools. I can say that nothing has been more rewarding than to witness Richard Allen Schools’ transformation over the past 20 years. I, along with others, boast that Richard Allen Schools is the place where every student has an opportunity to succeed!

Our intentional efforts throughout our schools remain aggressive, while we continue to improve in all areas of service. Our Blueprint for Success serves as our strategic plan framework. We are configuring our systems to ensure they bring about dramatic improvements at every grade level. Our goal is to make certain students are prepared for high school, college, and beyond. We believe all students can learn! We care about each and every student and show it by lending our best service as educators, regardless of our job descriptions. We understand the importance of creating a sense of community in our schools. We operate in a growth mindset at all times. Every stakeholder serves as a teacher, role model, mentor, supporter, and advocate to our entire student population.   

You won’t find a more committed district for defying the odds of overcoming barriers while providing the best service to our students and families. We recognize that by providing wraparound services and supports, we are able to make sure our students are well-rounded. We understand the needs of our students and are determined to provide every opportunity for them to succeed.

Together, we can be the change we want to see in the world. Working as an effective professional learning community, we are able to make certain our students understand the importance of an education and are provided opportunities and exposure that increase their expectations for themselves.  

Richard Allen Schools is sowing seeds of knowledge, growing trees of wisdom.
