Richmond Middle School began life as Richmond Junior High, on the original campus of the Richmond High School in downtown Richmond. In 1994, the current campus on South Wellington Street began construction, completed in the 1995-96 school year. Our building boasts an outstanding Media Center at the center of our facility, with modern computer labs and a stage at the end of our Commons that enabling plays, dances and concerts to be held.
We serve as host site for the Richmond Chamber of Commerce Business Expo, a Christmas Season Extravaganza with Breakfast with Santa, and other community events. We also support the annual 8th grade Trip to Washington DC in the spring, right after school ends for the summer. Sports begin in the 8th grade with football and volleyball, and then continues with basketball and wrestling in the winter, followed by track in the spring. We are situated next to the Richmond Community Swimming Pool and our physical education classes use that facility in August and September. Our Student Council provides many activities and events throughout the year, providing opportunities for service to the community. The Terrific Kids Program, sponsored by the Richmond Kiwanis Club, helps in recognizing many students throughout the year. Our Backpack Program is supported by many community organizations.
Academics are foremost, with our energy and efforts recognized. Our Math Team continues to be a pride for our school.
It is great to be a Spartan!
