Upcoming Events


The best things about going to school in Richmond are:
The various cultures in Richmond,
The [ELL] level system gives me the proper level of English classes,
The learning supports for students who need extra help from teachers.

International Students have the option of staying in a RISP Homestay Program host family. All RISP homestay families offer International students a warm, welcoming, supportive, English-speaking, urban, Canadian immersion experience while studying in Richmond public schools. All homestay families are within a short distance of school, and are carefully selected and prepared to ensure the best possible match for both the International Students and homestay families. The RISP Office Staff, the Homestay Coordinator, and the school-based RISP Coordinators give ongoing support and follow-up to International Students and homestay families alike.
