Richmond High School is one of six comprehensive four-year public high schools in the West Contra Costa Unified School District (WCCUSD). As an urban high school, RHS reflects the social diversity of the community. Richmond High School accepts students from across the district, rather than limiting its enrollment to local boundaries. Local feeder school is Helms Intermediate.
RHS has a simple concise vision of student achievement—100 % of students will meet or exceed grade level standards and requirements. We have transformed our school to a wall-to-wall cluster of small, high-performing, smaller learning communities (Academies). Our focus for improvement is to prepare RHS graduates so they are academically and technically prepared to succeed in higher education. Smaller learning communities create an environment that will enable students to feel, known, supported and motivated to succeed.
