Raytown High School


Welcome to Raytown High School

Raytown High School's first graduating class was the class of 1907, composed of 12 graduates who had come from many rural school districts which had consolidated to become the Raytown C-2 School district in 1903.  The school has expanded and been remodeled several times throughout the years.  During the 1954-1955 school year, the school was so crowded that classes were held under the stadium, at the nearby bus barn, and in the cafeteria.  Today, Raytown High School is known for outstanding academics and extracurricular programs.


The Raytown High School Jay Crew will again sponsor a "Hunger Games Food Drive" benefiting the Raytown Emergency Assistance Program (REAP). Each school building in the Raytown School District will collect non-perishable food items and monetary donations beginning March 23 through March 31. On Saturday, April 1, Jay Crew and other student groups from around the District will be at the following locations: Hy-Vee located on 350 Highway, Wal-mart located on 350 Highway, Apple Market located at 63rd and Woodson, and Raytown High School from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. collecting food items and monetary donations. Last year, students collected more than 6,000 items and raised $1,100 for REAP. Students earned a $10,000 charity grant and $5,000 in technology products for the school by finishing in the top ten of 2400 schools participating in a Lead2Feed Student Leadership project.
