Maplewood Richmond Height School District has developed a number of innovative programs designed to help students succeed. Collectively, these programs have helped make MRH the place to learn and teach in St. Louis County. We invite you to take a look:
From preschool all the way to graduation day, MRH is committed to providing the best education possible regardless of the student’s background. We ensure this through multiple efforts in and out of the classroom including social justice training for staff.
By partnering with Special School District, MRH is able to offer quality educational experiences for our students with disabilities. In addition, we also provide a wide range of career and technical education programs for our high school students.
School Nutrition Services
MRH School Nutrition Services is here to nourish the well-being of students and staff through nutritious and tasty meals. Our focus is incorporating more recipes from scratch and increasing our Seed to Table efforts to continually develop our school food culture.
Laptops for every secondary student, curriculum on line, interactive display technologies in every classroom. These are just some of the examples of MRH’s commitment to ensuring all students are best prepared for the demands on 21st century graduates.
Closely tied to our Stewardship Cornerstone, our work in sustainability has received national attention. We’ve been visited by groups as far away as Burlington, Vermont, and students have presented their work at conferences in Chicago and Tucson.
One thing that makes the MRH community a special place to live is its diversity. With student achievement as its core goal, the Teacher Home Visit program also strengthens ties within the community and bridges gaps that naturally exist in a heterogeneous area.
MRH’s Middle and High School are far from traditional with things like expeditionary learning and innovative facilities. Yet these approaches may not address some students' needs. This is where Alternative Services steps in to create a customized solution.
Student Group on Race Relations
The Student Group on Race Relations (SGORR) is an organization of diverse high school students in MRH High School that promotes positive social relations across all boundaries of difference by increasing self-awareness.
More than just a program at the High School, Joe’s Place is a community collaboration. Launched in 2007, the non-profit provides a safe, nurturing environment for homeless teens, helping them do something many of them never imagined – graduate high school.
Weekend on Wheels
Each weekend throughout the school year, MRH students and staff prepare nutritious food packages to support MRH families in need. Nonperishable food items are donated by the local faith community, neighboring school communities, and MRH families and community members.
