Welcome to E.T. Richardson Middle School

E.T. Richardson Middle School welcomes students to an engaging, challenging, and caring learning community and Writing Center. Encouraged by a dedicated and professional faculty and staff, students realize their unique selves, natural and intellectual curiosities, and endless potentials. Our focus rests in executing a curriculum that fuels students’ mindsets about learning and in realizing their unique connections and contributions to our collective learning community and beyond.  

Exploring the four pillars of Academics, Athletics/Activities, Arts and Service, students learn, discover and grow. Academic experiences, such as those provided through  ELA and STEM encourage students to probe their thinking and expand their understandings. Participation in athletics through interscholastic/intramural sports, and in our many activities, such as musicals, offers students team building and social/community development.  Students embrace service opportunities to give back to the community through our numerous clubs, such as the Student Alliance Club and Student Council. By exploring the four pillars through the middle school experience, students create a vision of their future.      

We are grateful to our parents, guardians, and the entire Springfield/Morton community as we work in partnership. Please explore the many links our website has to offer to learn more about our schools and district.
