During Dr. Richard's time in Globe, significant gains were made in state test scores and overall academics.
During the 2012-2013 school year, Dr. Richard made national headlines as the Principal of Westwood High School in Mesa, AZ (student population 3,200, 70% Free & Reduced Population). Despite the school having the highest percentage of students on Free & Reduced lunch of any other High School in the district, the school ended the year with the greatest gains in state testing scores of any other Mesa High School.
From 2013-2015, Dr. Richard was the Principal of Poston Butte High School. During this period of time, student enrollment increased by 400, the student failure rate decreased by over 30%, the school experienced the highest gains in state test scores in it's history, and the school become the very first 9-12 High Schools in the history of Pinal County to be recognized by the Arizona Education Foundation as an ”A Plus School of Excellence." The school was also recognized by the Arizona Department of Education with the "Spotlight on Innovation" award, as Poston Butte became the first high school in the district to fully implement the Professional Learning Community and the first in the state to fully implement and utilize Google Classroom.
In 2016, Dr. Richard became the Principal of San Tan Foothills High School. During the 2016-2017 School year San Tan Foothills had the highest state testing score gains in school history and some of the highest growth scores in Pinal County making Dr. Richard the only Principal in state history to lead significant school improvement results at 4 consecutive high schools. Since 2016, the enrollment of San Tan Foothills has increased from 400 students to over 900 students. Prior to 2016 the school did not have a Student Council, Cheer Team, marching band, or an Advanced Placement program. Now all of these programs, and many others, are flourishing.
Dr. Richard is a champion of Professional Learning Communities and he is one of only a small handful of Kagan Cooperative Learning School Trainers in the state. He enjoys helping to make San Tan Foothills "A Place for Greatness!"
