I recently graduated from RCMS, It was an amazing school with fantastic teachers. This school offers advanced classes to earn early highschool credit, I took Algebra 1 and Spanish 1, Both teachers really made sure we understood the subject. I wrote this review as a parent so I could have the ability to rate the teachers etc. I would highly recommend this school to others.

My kids love Raytown Centrals teachers. They are attached to their school and we are very happy for that. I thnk the only people whom are not happy with the school are those who have children with behavorial problems and or from a bad home environment lacking parental involvment. Overall this school is great.
