Welcome to the “Diamond Mine”!

The 2017-18 academic year presents opportunities for new beginnings and changes.  Personal and professional changes for improvement can be rewarding but also challenging and difficult to make and sustain.  Newness alone, however, cannot produce transformation.  We all must be willing to actively participate and work towards the goal(s) we have established for ourselves and our children.


As this year begins, Lower Richland High School has the opportunity to make new plans, design new strategies, and implement and embrace new ideas.  Whether our responsibility is in administration, teaching, preparing healthy lunches, maintaining and providing a clean environment, or managing an efficient and friendly office, there is always room for improvement and for new ways to do a good job even better.   Our goal is to ensure that every student is academically focused, disciplined, present, on time and ready to learn.


We can be proud of what we have achieved at Lower Richland High School academically, athletically and competitively, but our achievements are not due to complacency and satisfaction with the status quo.  Our school’s dedicated faculty and staff have a common goal: To do what is best for students and to always search for better ways to achieve this goal.


We must concentrate on the processes that spur continuing advancement by evaluating what we have, determining what we can do to improve, and identifying what we need to do to make those improvements.  The Lower Richland High School Administration, faculty, and staff look forward to working with you in meeting the academic needs of your child(ren) in a safe and orderly environment.
