Discover Richland Elementary

In 2018, Richland #44 Elementary School was named a National Blue Ribbon School; selection for this award is based on evidence of students achieving high learning standards or making substantial improvements in learning.

At Richland Elementary we offer small class sizes, a 4-year old preschool program, an after school program, and athletic teams for grades 5 and 6. Richland Elementary consistently scores above the state average on state standardized test scores.

In grade 7, students transition to our junior/senior high school in Colfax where we also offer small class sizes and many opportunities for students. Another unique and wonderful component of our school district is that when students graduate, they have the opportunity to earn a local $10,000 Darrel Hendrickson Scholarship learn more about the scholarship program here.
