We believe that every student should have an opportunity to realize his/her optimum potential academically, socially, emotionally and physically. Every child can learn and we can teach every child. Every child is unique and can make a valuable contribution to society. Given knowledge and opportunity, students can shape their own futures.


The mission of Richmond County Public Schools is to collaborate with parents and the community to provide a healthy environment in which children can develop academically, socially, physically and emotionally in order to become lifelong learners, independent thinkers and responsible citizens.
