Fleetwood Middle School History
The middle school, organized in 1966 – 67 with grades 6, 7, and 8, began its initial operation as a separate unit in September 1967, sharing the old school on Arch Street with the high school (grades 9 – 12), on a temporary split-session occupancy schedule. In February 1968, with the completion of the new high school building on North Richmond Street, grades 9 – 12 moved out and our middle school became the sole occupant of the then designed Fleetwood Area Middle School building on Arch Street.
Due to district enrollment and the need for updated educational facilities, the new middle school at 407 N. Richmond Street opened in September 1989. The high school/middle school buildings at 407/409 North Richmond Street were renovated in 1999 to become the district’s middle school. The new building offers many physical advantages to students with updated equipment, physical facilities, an expanded library, and expanded computer facilities.
