District Mission & Goals

The mission of the Maplewood Richmond Heights School District is to inspire and prepare students as leaders, scholars, stewards, and citizens for a diverse and changing world.


In the fall of 2014, more than 80 MRH parents, teachers, students, administrators, Board of Education members, alumni and community members met to create long-range goals for the district. The results of the intense work formed the basis of the 2015-2020 MRH Comprehensive School Improvement Plan, which was formally approved by the Board of Education on June 18, 2015. A “theory of change” has been created for each goal area and is summarized below:

Goal 1: Mission Vision
If the MRH community (staff, students, parents) clearly understands, articulates, and demonstrates the MRH Mission, Vision, and Metaphors; then our students will embody stewardship, leadership, scholarship, and citizenship.

Goal 2: Student Achievement
If we create the expectations and conditions for high quality, responsive instruction and programming, then all students will achieve at higher levels.

Goal 3: Community Engagement
If we develop a comprehensive communication and engagement plan, that includes all of our stakeholders, we will create a diverse, engaged, and supportive community for the Maplewood Richmond Heights School District.

Goal 4: Facilities
If MRH maintains innovative, high quality, safe and inspirational spaces that support our mission, vision and metaphors for our growing enrollment then our students' diverse needs will be met in a sustainable and technology rich environment.

Goal 5: Human Resources
If MRH hires, retains, and invests in an exceptional staff that represents the unique diversity within our district, then our diverse population of students will have outstanding opportunities to develop as leaders, scholars, stewards, and citizens.
