Richboro Elementary School
Welcome to Our School
Richboro Elementary School dates back to 1860 when a one room schoolhouse was built. In 1913, a stone building was erected and became a three year high school. This building was enlarged in 1928 to accommodate grades k-12. Over the years, as the community grew, three more additions were added to create more classroom space. Finally, in 1989, the new Richboro Elementary School was built here at 125 Upper Holland Road. The old stone building, home to Richboro Elementary for over 75 years, still stands off of Second Street Pike. The current principal, Mrs. Rebecca Grimm is the fourth principal to serve the Richboro community since the opening of our new building.
Richboro is a family oriented community offering diverse places of worship, active sports leagues, a Community Center, Senior Center, Library, Shopping Centers and farmland. The neighborhoods surrounding Richboro are predominately single home dwellings with little land left for additional building. Richboro School maintains partnerships with our parent association, Richboro School Association and community groups like Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Richboro Senior Center and SAGE (Senior Adults for Greater Education), Lincs (Learning in Community Service) and STAR students from the Council Rock High Schools.
There are approximately 575 students at Richboro Elementary School. Of the 550 students, 6% receive gifted support and 8% receive special education support. There are 42 professional staff members and 25 support staff members. Ninety percent of teachers have five or more years teaching experience and a Master’s Degree in education. Richboro teachers are committed to life long learning and thus participate in professional growth through graduate course work, professional conferences and readings, District and Out of District workshops, District Committees, Collaborative Colleague work and annual development of personal growth goals.
The Richboro Elementary School community works closely with families to assure that students’ needs are met. Richboro students consistently score well on standardized tests. We believe this can be attributed to the rigorous instructional program provided, the close working relationship maintained with families and the attention given to embracing and educating the child intellectually, socially and emotionally.
