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.

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.
