Richmond Community High School

A National School of Excellence

Principal's Message

  • Principal Massenburg Pharaohs,

    At the close of each year, I take time to pause and reflect on the successes and challenges that came with being a part of the Richmond Community family. This year, I was reminded that 2020 was a year unlike any other, but in spite of unexpected and—at times—difficult circumstances, we prevailed! We can take pride in our ability to adapt, embrace change, and achieve.

    Each new year brings about another 365 days to set new intentions and tackle new goals. So as we usher in 2021 and the second half of the school year, I am excited to welcome everyone back. All signs point to an incredible finish! Let’s recommit to our core values by remaining innovative, adaptable, and eager to learn!

    Never forget that excellence is in our DNA, woven into the very fabric of who we are. I look forward to a fresh start on January 4! Please remember: We are Pharaohs..., leading the way while standing FIRM in our excellence! ALL IN, ALL ONE, ALL PHARAOHS! Bring it on, 2021!

    Kenya Massenburg

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - January 27 (PM), 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, I want to extend a huge thank you to my guests on RPS Live! tonight: Principal Anderson (Blackwell ES), Principal Powell (Cary ES), Principal Hartsfield (MLK PS), Principal London (Henderson MS), and Principal Murray (Marshall HS). If you missed it, I strongly encourage you to catch the video on the RPS Facebook page. It's like watching a TED talk on leadership - but even better. Please join me in expressing our profound gratitude to these extraordinary leaders, and the many others in RPS they represent! As you might recall, in December we celebrated Inclusive Schools Week and we asked our students to submit a t-shirt design to promote inclusion. I'm thrilled to announce the winner: Bella Brownlee, a 4th grade student at Linwood Holton Elementary School!
