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!
