Breakfast at Raymore-Peculiar High School

Please join us for this FREE EVENT on Thursday, September 27, 2018 from 7:30-9:00 am for a tour of the recently expanded and renovated Raymore-Peculiar High School. We'll begin this free event with a district presentation and design team panel discussion about the journey to include more innovative design elements into a fairly traditional comprehensive high school. Come learn how one fairly conservative community navigated the process to help expand student-centered learning opportunities.

  AIA 1.5 LU



The Raymore-Peculiar community overwhelmingly approved a $27 million bond issue in April 2016 to implement a recently updated facility plan. The funds were utilized to expand and renovate Ray-Pec High School to accommodate an ever growing student population, while supporting a grade level reconfiguration to better utilize space throughout the district.

The addition features an open-concept media center with ample natural light, meeting areas, a student-run coffee bar, and an adjacent culinary program. The two-story classroom addition includes a freshman center learning area with an administrative suite, a variety of lab and core classrooms, and a mass media production suite. Renovated areas include a large group collaboration space, a student-run school store, a life skills suite for students with special needs, and a renovated and expanded cafeteria complex. Also included in the additions are performing arts spaces and a storm resistant concrete dome gymnasium. Upgrades to various learning areas throughout the project support more 21st-century learning opportunities.

2018 Quarterly Conversation Events

The Kansas City Chapter is seeking proposals for future locations for our Quarterly Conversation events. We’re looking for learning environments that challenge the status quo and demonstrate innovation in instruction and space. Facilities should be recently constructed and include opportunities for collaboration, hands on learning, community connections, etc. Any project from early childhood to higher education would be welcome, as we work to connect the opportunities from all learning levels.
