Raymore-Peculiar East Middle School
Originally established in 1973, as Raymore-Peculiar Middle School, Raymore-Peculiar East Middle School opened in the fall of 2010 and continues to be the only middle school of the Raymore-Peculiar School District. The school serves about 1000 students who live in suburban and rural neighborhoods south of Kansas City, Missouri. Students come to Ray-Pec East Middle School from two intermediate schools as well as from area private and parochial schools whose parents choose to transfer their students to RPEMS for the middle school years.
Going "GREEN" At RPEMS
Raymore-Peculiar East Middle School was recognized in the fall of 2012 as a LEED “Gold” certified building. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green building Rating system is a rating system verifying that a building project is environmentally responsible and a healthy place to live and work. It is a nationally accepted, third-party certification program. Innovation, Environmental, Sustainability, Energy, and Renewability were selected by the curriculum writing team as the five big ideas that will serve as the framework of our curriculum design. The curriculum writing team’s purpose of encouraging environmentally literate and responsible students is achieved in a variety of teaching avenues all while emphasizing the unique, energy conscious features of RPEMS.
