Book Review: The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

By Ana Downes

“The Glass Castle”, originally published in 2005, is a deeply moving and poignant memoir about the life of American author and journalist Jeannette Walls.

Richview’s Science Stool Struggles

By Lauren Olszaniecki

Richview’s 30-year-old science labs have got to go. More specifically, the stools, lamented by students of all ages, genders and sizes. Even teachers agree that the science labs’ stools are one of the worst parts of teaching.
