- About Us
Welcome to Maplewood Richmond Heights. Our schools form a gem of a district in the greater St. Louis region – a public school system offering its students a private school education.
Central to our mission is the statement that we will inspire and prepare students as leaders, scholars, stewards and citizens. We call these four concepts “the cornerstones” of our district – scholarship, leadership, stewardship, and citizenship.
At MRH, we value highly qualified teachers, personalized service, academic rigor, technology for 21st century learning, diversity, and outstanding facilities. Having these has been critical to our progress, but at the heart of our improvement is the strong ties MRH has with the community. Our partnership with both cities, its residents, and local businesses is a model for others.
I look forward to continuing the successes the district has achieved and building upon the strong foundation we have already created together.
