Principal's Corner


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!
