Richland School District serves elementary age children living in the City of Shafter and outlying areas. The District operates four schools that are located in the city: Golden Oak Elementary School (K-6), Redwood Elementary School (K-6), Sequoia Elementary School (K-6) and Richland Junior High School (7-8).
The Richland School District adheres to the premise that all children can learn. The District's mission is to be consistent in empowering all schools at all grade levels in nurturing the mental, physical, social and emotional growth of all students by bringing about excellence through planned instruction, based on a CORE of knowledge in which all children should learn, that promotes a positive self, academic success, and a social consciousness that will lead toward productive citizenship.
Upon completion of Eighth Grade students attend Shafter High School which is part of the Kern High School District.
