 About Us

Raytown Quality Schools are about education in every sense of the word. Academically and socially, the schools challenge students to live up to the promise of their expectations and provide the programs they need to succeed.

The 2003-2004 school year marked a special time for the Raytown C-2 School District as it celebrated its 100th Anniversary. In 1903, eight independent elementary schools consolidated in order to provide the best education for their community. Now, one hundred years later, the district has embarked on its next century of quality education.

The district has a strong tradition of community support. Residents have come to "expect the exceptional" in student and teacher performance as well as the wide range of academic programs and extracurricular activities.

Although the first priority is the education of school-age children, the district has programs that reflect the community’s commitment to education at any age. From early childhood education to adult education, Raytown Schools strive to make learning an inviting and rewarding experience for everyone.

In April of 2008, patrons passed a no tax levy increase in its Quality Counts campaign.  The levy was used for staff salaries, to make Raytown a competitive district among local districts.

In 2014, patrons passed a $23 million dollar Bond Issue through the Refresh campaign.  It will include roofs replacement, an upgraded playing field for Raytown South High, multiple plumbing and electrical projects, and digital signage outside schools as well as a myriad of other projects.
