LPS-Richmond aims high

The mission of Leadership Public School-Richmond(LPS-Richmond) is to send 100% of its students to college. Many of the students would be the first in their families to achieve a higher education.

The formula combines dedicated teachers and extremely high standards. Learn more about their journey and how the YouTube musical sensation Pomplamoose helped schools in Richmond receive over 1,000 books in just three days.

  1. such an uplifting video !

  2. Thanks to Kamila and to Richmond Confidential for shining a spotlight on my wonderful students! I have one correction, though: my students grew by 16 percent from their diagnostic to the first unit assessment rather than by 20 percent. I apologize for the error! Still, I think that they’re on track to make terrific growth. Also, to provide an update, the Richmond Book Drive has currently brought in more than 7,800 books for a total of over $60,000 spent on Amazon. On behalf of my students and other young people around Richmond, thank you!
