About our School
Originally established in 1973 as Raymore-Peculiar Middle School, Raymore-Peculiar East Middle School opened in the fall of 2010 and is the only middle school serving grades 7-8 in the Raymore-Peculiar School District. The school serves about 1,000 students who live in suburban and rural neighborhoods.
Raymore-Peculiar East Middle School will provide an engaging environment that supports learning. We foster a climate that embraces the uniqueness of middle-level learners in a diverse culture while promoting promoting an interdependent community that is environmentally responsible.
Innovation, Environmental, Sustainability, Energy, and Renewability were selected by the school’s 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.
We're a "green" building
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 verifies that a building project is environmentally responsible and a healthy place to live and work. It is a nationally accepted, third-party certification program.
