RPS: A Mini History: Bits & Pieces

Much of the history of the Richmond Public Schools was recorded in the context of a segregated society, and the reader should readily discern between pre- and post-desegregation observations. The terms "black," "colored," "Negro," and "white" in this booklet should not be considered offensive as they have been used according to the custom of the particular period. Since 1962, the division has omitted such racial designations from its reports and publications.

Indian School 1222 Nicholson Street (Fulton)

This ungraded one-room school operated in the sessions of 1928-30 and was supervised by the principal of Robert Fulton School. The small group of pupils of Indian ancestry had been enrolled in Robert Fulton School but were removed because of a protest from white citizens of the community.

The school was discontinued when the families of these pupils moved from the city.

Enrollment: 1928-1929 10
