Richmond District and Curriculum
Richmond offers comprehensive educational opportunities to meet the needs of all students along the academic continuum. This includes programs for high ability students, special education, preschool, vocational training and adult education. Of particular interest to parents is the Early College Academy that allows students to earn a portion of their Associate’s Degree by taking the first of many dual credit classes through Ivy Tech. This is a unique program because the dual credit class is in addition to rigorous Core 40 or Core 40 Honors classwork that is a prerequisite for college bound students at Richmond High School.
We currently cover the following Richmond-area school district: Richmond Community Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Richmond District Curriculum
The curriculum provides core learning for all students and the district extends this through a range of different programs. The LOGOS Lab program is for High Ability students opened in 1980 for middle school students focused on providing a differentiated instructional program. Emphasis is on personal achievement and collaboration rather than competition among students.
Richmond is one of the few districts that incorporate preschool learning into their elementary schools. The preschool program is open to the public and provides enriching research-based activities as preparation for the child’s entry into the formal classroom environment. Once students are in kindergarten, they are ready for the expectations of early reading, writing, and have had an exposure to shapes, patterns and numbers. This prepares them with the foundation by which they will build to far more advanced abilities.

Your child should have a regular routine throughout the school year. That includes such things as going to bed at a time that allows for sufficient sleep and having regular meal times.
