Richfield High School students were glorious greeters at the Park Nicollet Gala event held Saturday October 8th. The Gala was held at the Minneapolis Hilton Hotel. $710,000 was raised for school based health centers!
Dear Richfield Community,
Richfield is a community looking at innovation.
Our mayor and city council have shared their vision to make Richfield a city of the future. Richfield Public Schools is an important component in the success of our city. While our programs are very strong, we are working on a number of innovative and impressive programs to move forward to an even brighter future. Our strategic plan helps us focus directly on accomplishing our mission: “Richfield Public Schools inspires and empowers each individual to learn, grow and excel”.
Here are some examples of the amazing and innovative opportunities that have launched:
Our Richfield College Experience Program, located at Normandale Community College allows our students to gain more college credits while completing high school.
Dual language Spanish immersion programing arrived at the high school, where we have the first program statewide that offers students credit for Language Arts while being instructed in Spanish.
Our high school’s Richfield Health Center offers free medical, dental and psychological services to all Richfield citizens from birth through age 21.
Our STEM program continues to work with the University of Minnesota and the Mayo Clinic to provide an award winning Science Technology Engineering Math school.
Our early childhood programming expanded to serve over 200 children through PreK and early childhood education classes
Here are some examples of the improvements to come:
Our high school is planning to provide more college credit courses and an expanded 7 period day to better serve students
We are participating in a facility study to make sure that our buildings and grounds effectively support student excellence
Elementary schools are improving curriculum to ensure that all students are guaranteed to learn using the best possible materials
We thank you for your support of our students, staff, families, community and school. We work extremely hard to provide the best possible education for every student. Our innovative programming that serves the Richfield learners is being constantly improved and refined. We are honored to serve the Richfield community, families and students. We remain very thankful to the citizens of Richfield. You are important Richfield Spartan teammates.

"Voices Heard: A Conversation Between Youth and Cops"
Community members of the Multicultural Advisory Committees of Bloomington and Richfield invite you to a community wide dinner, collaborative presentation of personal stories from high school youth and police officers, and post show discussion on Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016, in the Kennedy High School Auditorium located at 9701 Nicollet Avenue Bloomington, Minnesota. Dinner begins at 5:30pm and performance begins at 6:15pm.
This event brings together twenty high school students and eight police officers to engage in a transparent, authentic dialogue. Participants will gather in a safe space to share their personal stories with each other. Our goal is to break down barriers of communication between police officers and youth through creative dialogue. This event will be a presentation of personal stories and skits by Bloomington and Richfield youth and police officers. These stories emerge from their participation in a workshop series that focuses on building trust and meaningful relationships through the mediums of creative writing and theatre.
