International Baccalaureate
Ray-Pec High School approved as International Baccalaureate World School
After an intensive multi-year preparation process, the Raymore-Peculiar School District received word that Ray-Pec High School has officially been authorized as an International Baccalaureate World School.  Superintendent Dr. Kari Monsees announced the news at the Feb. 19, 2015, School Board meeting.

The approval follows several years of work that included changes in course offerings for grades 7-11, professional development for staff, meetings with students and parents about the I.B. Program, the appointment of Steven Meek as I.B. Coordinator, a formal application process, and a site visit.

With this approval from the International Baccalaureate World Office, Ray-Pec High School will offer its first I.B. courses during the 2015-2016 school year for juniors.

Students can begin to take advanced classes in eighth grade to prepare them for the I.B. courses their junior and senior years of high school.

The I.B. Program is a comprehensive and balanced two-year curriculum and assessment system that allows students to study courses across all disciplines. Through careful subject selection, students may tailor their course of studies to meet their needs. Students who choose to pursue the I.B. Diploma will explore the connections between six major subject areas through an international perspective. They will also pursue one subject in great detail through independent research and will have an opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills in community outreach. It is designed for highly motivated students who seek the challenge of a well-rounded curriculum.
