About Us

Richvale Elementary believes that the public interest is best served through assuring high quality education for all students and believes knowledgeable, well-trained, and effective educators are essential to achieving excellence in education. The staff is dedicated to providing high quality program through a combination of effective and innovative teaching methods. 
Richvale is a small rice-growing community, located 75 miles north of Sacramento and 20 miles south of Chico. The nearest shopping, medical, and county facilities are ten miles away. Community members are consistently supportive of the school. 
Richvale Elementary is one of four schools in the Biggs Unified School District. Our school has three classrooms. Other facilities include a full-sized gymnasium with a stage and a cafeteria. The school employs two teachers and three instructional aides. One principal oversees both Richvale and Biggs Elementary schools, along with lead teachers on-site at both locations.

Dear Richvale Elementary School Students and Families,

My goal is to ensure that all children are healthy, happy and safe, so they can achieve their highest learning potential. Looking at the whole child has always been my philosophy since I began my career in education. For students to reach their full potential and become lifelong learners, it takes a partnership of committed administrators, teachers, parents, support staff, community members and students. It is apparent that this belief is shared within the Biggs Unified School District where the core values are: Academic Excellence, Respect for Human Differences, Cooperative and Caring Relationships, and Commitment to Community.

Warm Regards,

LaQuita E. Ulrich
Principal, Richvale Elementary School
