  • Rose Pelzer Principal's Greetings

    Welcome to the 2016-20717 school year! It is truly an honor and a privilege to be a member of the Lower Richland High School Diamond Hornet family. My primary goal is to ensure that all students experience an educational atmosphere that will inspire them to reach their greatest potential.


    It is our job, as the faculty and staff of Lower Richland High School, to provide a rigorous and stimulating learning environment in which students learn core content standards in every subject which will allow them to apply their academic experiences to real-world applications. We will provide experiences that extend beyond the walls of this institution through field trip excursions, explorations and hands-on activities.


    With the implementation of our ninth grade “Diamond Academy,” we are closely monitoring the academic progress of all students so that they can experience a smooth transition into high school.  Through consistent observation and monitoring of instruction, student grades, discipline and attendance in every grade, and with parental and community support, I am certain that our students will excel this school year and we will have positive results. 


    To our students, faculty, parents, community and friends, welcome to the “Diamond Mine.” We are Lower Richland High School, an institution of excellence!

    Student Body Council Fundraiser

    Dear Lower Richland High School Community,

    The Student Body Council will be raising money for the American Cancer Society.  The name of the fundraiser is called "Save the Tootsie".  We are asking the campus to join us in wearing pink on October 20, 2016 or October 21, 2016.  Students will be collecting donations on campus during 1st and 2nd lunch.  Any student or staff member caught wearing pink will be given a special treat (a pink tootsie roll) to say thanks for supporting the campaign effort.  The goal is to raise $500. We are also asking the community to help us with raising the money as well. Please support us in this effort to meet and exceed our goal.
