This small urban, racially diverse high school (neighboring the St. Louis Public Schools), has achieved amazing results. Educators have developed rigorous curricula that rival the offerings of many suburban schools, established effective teaching practices that support the academic success of all students and all student groups, and nurtured a warm and pleasant climate that makes high school students want to come to school and learn. In a few short years, leaders at Maplewood Richmond Heights turned around student discipline, academic expectations, connections to parents and the community, and the level of collaboration among teachers. Learn how leaders helped transform Maplewood Richmond Heights into a model high school that improves students’ lives.
