who we are 

Nestled in the corner of the high desert, at the confluence of the Cascade and Sierra Nevada mountain ranges, Richmond School sits along what once was a wagon trail into Lassen County. Established in 1864, Richmond is the oldest, longest continuously operated school in Lassen County. In 2014, Richmond celebrated its 150th anniversary.
Serving a population of approximately 200 students, Richmond provides an enriching, yet standards-based curriculum for all students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade.
