Welcome to Richwoods R-VII, the home of the Wildcats! Our school serves preschool through eighth grade students in the Richwoods, Missouri, area. We are very proud of our school and our community. We are fortunate to have a caring, dedicated staff, supportive parents and guardians, and wonderful students.

A Message from Our Superintendent

Our mission statement is “Partnering to Achieve Wildcat Success,” and we take that very seriously. We partner with the community, parents, and students to provide a quality education every day. The board of education, staff, and I continue to strive to make improvements to our facilities and instruction so that students experience a high quality education.

Please visit our Meet Our Superintendent page to learn a little more about me. My door is open to discuss any concerns or suggestions you may have. Thank you for your trust in our team—I look forward to continuing to serve as your superintendent.
