    If you feel good about a progressive libral minded education this is the place for you. If you want a broader more challenging environment with lots of choices in cirriculum you should look beyond this district. Good people good intentions nice families just lacking depth.

    The drop out rate is very high. And lots of students put in alternate programs for low preformers. The class (grade) sizes so small there is not much variety in academics. The coaches in sports play favorites and let some kids sit on bench. Even when not in official fames. Took my kids out to private school.

    When moving to St. Louis we were determined to send our children to private schools. As we were perusing the different options within our area a neighbor approached and asked if we had considered the local public school. They went on and on about the district and the amazing school and so we decided to go just to say we went. We were BLOWN away. It was better than the highest end private schools we were considering. There were small classroom sizes teachers that were awarded MO teacher of the year awards (Heather Bailey) gardens the children tended farm animals and classes on sustainability. The actual building was of the highest notch architecture. It was open light and bright with floor to ceiling windows. When meeting the principal I noted that she knew every child's name in the entire school all 250 something of them! The icing was that everyday the children's lunches consisted of a locally grown and harvested fruit or vegetable. The playground focussed on imaginative play with little buildings depicting a small village and push peddle cars and trikes to navigate the "town". Four years later...we are still thrilled.

    MRH approaches education with a lot of new ideas which I think is important. From bringing farm animals and raising chickens to taking field trips and job shadowing there is an emphasis on taking learning beyond the classroom. Add this with the fact that technology is widely used in the school and every student get a laptop to use for homework and MRH seems like a private school for a public school price.

    After many many years in the school district I liked it here and there but when the high schoolers play around they act as if they are bullying each other but it is playing. This is a major concern because if some one is to be bullied people will just think that its a joke. After 12 years ( Pre-K though 10th grade I'm sick of it i just flat out don't like it. To me it is like college they give you the work don't explain it then tell you to just do it. I have dyslexia and yes i did have to find out how to spell it but they gave me no help what so ever with it.

    It's a hands-on school with lots of great opportunities at hand. At MRHHS there's never a day when you don't learn something new.

    I love Maplewood Richmond Heights because of the people and the teachers. The people because they are friendly and help you if you need help. The teachers because they are specific with they topic they are teaching and if you need help with something then they will help you whenever they get the chance. they give you a second chance to do your assignments. They have expeditions and they always have activities.

    I love MRH because even though it is farely small I get the education I need and the independent time and help from teachers that I need to get good grades and balance my schedule. I also love our school because I know exactly where I'm going and I'm not confused unlike going to a big 2 000 student school like Kirkwood.

    Maplewood is cool because you can usually get along with the teachers well. There is also a great advantage in the technology we have it's very easy to use and school is a lot more fun when we get to communicate with the teachers online.

The school is improving in technology school functions that benefit school programs as well as activities that inspire students.
