    Richmond Elementary School is a learning community that focuses on integrating Japanese Language and Culture into the standard Oregon curriculum. This is accomplished through a partial immersion approach where students spend half of each day with a Japanese speaking teacher and the other half with an English speaking teacher. This Model program (Center for Applied Linguistics, 2000) is continued at Mt. Tabor Middle School and Grant High School for an articulated experience in second language acquisition. At the elementary level teachers coordinate instruction across the curriculum in science, social studies, math and problem solving, health and literacy in both languages, with complimentary lessons that reinforce district, State and National standards. Physical Education and Library skills are offered through full time instructors. There is no preschool program at Richmond. Please click here for more information about why the preschool program was discontinued.
