School Philosophy:

Secondary schooling is a formal component of the lifetime process of education. It includes the development of a sound knowledge base, intellectual and vocational skills, and positive attitudes towards one’s self and the world.

Richmond Secondary School strives to provide an appropriate learning environment for students from a variety of backgrounds and with a variety of interests. The school offers programs and activities that challenge students to achieve their personal best in academics, artistic endeavors, technical skills, social skills and physical fitness to become self-reliant, productive members of an ever-changing society.

IB Mission Statement:

The International Baccalaureate® aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.

These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
