RHS Class of 2020 Closes Graduation Gap

We are excited to share with you that our 4-year graduation rate for Richfield High School students increased by 8.4 percentage points. Superintendent Unowsky and Asst. Superintendent Daniels sat down with KARE 11 and talked about what it took to eliminate the achievement gap in the 2020 graduation rate at Richfield High School.  

“When I entered Richfield Public Schools about seven years ago, our graduation rate was about 16 points below where it is now and we had a 33-point gap between our white students and our students of color," Unowsky told KARE 11. "In 2020, we actually had no gap between white students and students of color."

We teach students self-talk to help them succeed as they learn new things. We explain that the brain is a muscle to develop and that they are capable of learning. You can model this at home, too!

Students in class making peace signs

We believe that all students should experience academic rigor and a pace that is challenging but doable. This is what makes our Talent Development program different from a traditional Gifted and Talented model.

summer school students

Our elementary summer program was a success! Students enjoyed learning, playing games and participating in exciting, hands-on activities. As students explored and learned, they also built lasting connections with their teachers and peers, making the summer both educational and fun-filled.
