Colonel Richardson Middle School is a public middle school serving grades 6-8 in Southern Caroline County.  Our enrollment is approximately 410 students.  Students engage in a daily academic program consisting of English/Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, and Science, with Unified Arts being offered on an A/B Day schedule.

Opportunities are available for extracurricular involvement in a variety of areas such as drama, music & band, robotics, and community service.  Students are also afforded the opportunity to enroll in classes to earn High School credit.

Our school shares a campus with Colonel Richardson High School and takes its name from the founder of Caroline County:  Colonel William Richardson.

Our Vision

Colonel Middle students naturally pursue rigor, leadership, and autonomy under the guidance of well-prepared and supportive staff.

Our Mission

At CRMS, we always take the high road by:

Creating a better future through learning

Remembering to do our best and nothing less

Motivating everyone toward success

Sharing and helping peers with our best ideas.


We do not currently have an active PTA. We would love to have an involved parent group at our school. If you are interested in starting the PTA, please contact the school and we’ll be happy to help. Please use our contact form or call us at 410.754.9922.

Service Learning

Students are required to complete a minimum of 75 hours of service-learning during their time in school. In Caroline County, students complete school-based projects during grades 3-9. In middle and high school, students complete some hours on their own through individual projects. For complete details, please visit the CCPS website Service Learning page. 

Flyer distribution

In an effort to provide increased access to informaiton about school and community programs and events, CCPS partners with Peachjar which enables us to send important school and approved community flyers to parents digitally, saving our school time, money, and paper.

School-approved digital flyers are sent to your email inbox where you can easily click to sign up for events and programs. No action is required to begin receiving this communication from your school. Peachjar will use the first email address you have on file with the school. You don't need to log in to receive or view school flyers, but you can log in to adjust your delivery preferences.

To access flyers for CRMS, please visit our Peachjar page.
