Welcome to Ritchie County Middle School. Middle school is the shortest avenue on the educational journey. Students are only here for three years and in those years, aside from the education, students are prepared for high school and other parts of their lives. Our charge is to prepare them to the best of our ability which is why we have a Commitment to Excellence. We want to empower the students to be ready for what their future holds. We want the students to take responsibility for their actions and respect persons from all walks of life.
We have three simple general rules: Be prepared, Be respectful, and Be an Active Learner. In the 21st Century, students need to take ownership of their education. We encourage parents to take an active part in this educational process. We are constantly gaining in ways to communicate. Our doors are always open so please call or come in anytime.
