Raymore–Peculiar High School (Ray-Pec) is a public high school serving the towns of Raymore and Peculiar, parts of Lee's Summit, and some unincorporated areas of Cass county, Missouri. In 2010, it was announced that both a North building (originally the district's sole middle school) and the traditional South building would be used in a campus-style environment to accommodate the growing student population, and to also address recent concerns about overcrowding; both schools are located in Peculiar, Missouri. The school's mascot is the Panther, and the official colors are black and white, although gold has been in regular use for some time. It is also a participant in Missouri's A+ Program.

It is commonly referred to as "Ray-Pec."
