In April of 2005, voters in a bond election approved the building of a new high school in North Kansas City Schools.
The result is a 314,000 square foot, 65 acre, environmentally friendly and energy-saving building. Historic dates in the annals of Staley include the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting, August 18, 2008 and Building Dedication Ceremony and Community Open House, September 21, 2008. Ground breaking was October 28, 2005. With that commitment in hand, community and educator collaboration resulted in the design of a truly advanced environment for teaching and learning.
A momentous occasion occurred on April 16, 2008, when a committed group of students, parents, and staff met at Staley High School in room CR113 to write our founding documents. This historic date was the first official gathering at Staley High School. As our students, parents, staff, and community remain true to the Vision, Mission, and Core Values, we will become a school destined for greatness with a proud history.
In the fall of 2005, a committee composed of future students, staff, parents and community members engaged in a consensus decision process to determine the school colors and mascot. After receiving input from all constituencies, the committee recommended Green, Black and Silver as the official school colors and the Falcon as the official mascot. In the days of chivalry, Falcon held the meaning of “one who does not rest until the objective is achieved.” Green stood for Hope, Joy and Loyalty. Silver represented Peace."Together... Traditions... Staley Strong"

Staley High School Crest
Our School Crest will be an important symbol of Staley High School’s ideals, history, and culture for many years to come. The crest was developed by students (Matt Cook, Caitlyn Duckworth, Jessica Goldsberry, Derek Hukill, Robert Leslie, Hayley Ostronic, Caleb Rolfe, Samantha Watts, Matthew Zeilmann,) under the direction of Mrs. Chelle Cox and Mr. Steve Gorman (Staley Art teachers), and Jeff Enger (Jostens). The School Crest was carefully fashioned in the spring of 2008. The School Crest was unveiled during Back to School activities during the inaugural year.
