About Us

                       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!



                                              John Parker, Principal

RHS Scholar Bowl Results

On February 21, Richmond High School hosted the first Scholar Bowl competition of the season.  The teams are led by Head Coach Claudia Luntsford and Assistant Coach Marni 
Ourth. The Varsity and Junior Varsity teams each competed against Carrollton, Holden and Knob Noster 

The Junior Varsity Team is composed of nine freshman.  First round nerves were almost overcome but the team only lost by 30 points to Holden. The squad became more confident as the night progressed with a second-round win over Carrollton by 20 points and their final round of the evening ended with a 100 point win over Knob Noster. Joe Martin was the top scorer for JV with 120 points, Garrett Allnutt and Lily Wirsig scored 60 points each, and Amber Danner and Damian Owens each provided an additional 10 points for their team.

The RHS Varsity team had all veteran players showing confidence during this first meet. They won all 3 games against their opponents. Luke Morrill was the top scorer for Varsity 
with 210 points, in a close second was Hannah Truitt with 170 points followed by extra help from Tim Isaacson with 40 points and Reuben Long with 20 points.
