Note: Much of the history of the Richmond Public Schools was recorded in the context of a segregated society, and the reader should readily discern between pre- and post-desegregation observations. The terms "black," "colored," "Negro," and "white" in this booklet should not be considered offensive as they have been used according to the custom of the particular period. Since 1962, the division has omitted such racial designations from its reports and publications.
3900 (Residential) School
3900 West Broad Street
The REAL School began in 1979, operating from three rented cottages at the Virginia Methodist Children's Home, 3900 West Broad Street; hence it was sometimes referred to as the "3900 Schoo1."
In 1982, this five-day residential program relocated to the Brook Hill Building.
