I very much enjoyed my time as a student at Ray-Pec! I felt safe and comfortable in the learning environment and made lots of friends during my high school career. Ray-Pec takes pride in their academics/extracurriculars and holds their students to high standards. They provide a numerous amount of extra curricular activities so every student can find something to be involved in. My favorite memories from my time at Ray-Pec was Friday night football games, school plays, and pep assemblies! The Raymore-Peculiar school district is a rapidly growing school district and a great community to enroll your students in!

Raymore-Peculiar Senior High School the academics are great! We have multiple programs within our school to help students with grades! Athletics are pretty good, and our school teams are fun to watch. Our sports team could be less politically run. The diversity of the school could increase. Our cafeteria food is pretty good we have multiple options to choose from and they're very different options at that. Ranging from extremely healthy to not as healthy. Our staff is pretty good at helping and meeting student needs. The facilities are pretty decent.
At Raymore-Peculiar, I am most infatuated with the fact that there are so many different academic and extracurricular opportunities offered here. From AP to IB to Dual Credit courses, there are always new ways for students to learn and stay engaged. I have fallen in love with the band program at this school, and this has pushed me to practice diligently to make the Missouri All-State Band both my sophomore and junior year; if it were not for this school, I would have never discovered my passion for music. Compared to other high schools, the staff at Ray-Pec truly care about their students and want them to comprehend and retain the information they are teaching to us. While there are always going to be negative aspects to every high school, there are definitely not many negative things that I could point out about this school. Over the past four years, I have grown to love this school and I am going to be truly sad when it is time for me to start the next chapter of my life.
