                       US News and World Report Bronze Level 2018 High School

Welcome to the Second Semester!

Dear Richmond Spartan Community,

Welcome to the second semester of the 2018-19 school year!  I am in my 8th year as the principal at Richmond High School, and I could not be more proud to be a Spartan.  I am happy to announce that Richmond High School was recently ranked nationally as one of the top-performing schools in Missouri (44 out of 567).  This success is due to the dedicated faculty and hardworking students at RHS.  This school year, we are continuing to build on this success through a variety of rigorous academic offerings. 
Furthermore, we are also excited to add Excelsior Springs Career Center as another of our vocational education options.  The wide variety of academic courses and extracurricular activities make Richmond High School a place where every student can thrive. 


In addition, we have made many improvements to the Richmond School District and Richmond High School’s website.  As you explore the website, you will find informational links about academics, activities, daily events, staff information, A+ Tutoring, School News, and Power School.   

Finally, parent and community members’ contributions and cooperation are a vital part of RHS.  Therefore, I look forward to working with you to develop a relationship that will assist in the growth of your child both academically and socially.  
 It truly is a great time to be a Spartan!
