Welcome to Royal Middle School

Welcome to Royal Middle School, home of the Knights! As the principal of this esteemed school, it is my privilege to introduce you to our exceptional learning community. At Royal Middle School, we strive to provide an enriching educational experience that empowers students to be their best selves. 


 We take great pride in our "Strongholds," which symbolize the unity and resilience of our student body. The Blue Leviathan, Cinder Kings, Iron Giants and Rising Storm are not just names; they represent the diverse talents and unique qualities that each student brings to our school community


 As a school, we are committed to fostering a well-rounded education, encompassing academic excellence, character development, and personal growth. At Royal Middle School, we believe that every student has unique strengths and abilities, and it is our mission to help them unlock their full potential.

I am excited to embark on this journey with our students, parents, and staff, as we work collaboratively to create an exceptional educational experience. Together, we will empower our Knights to become confident, compassionate, and capable individuals who will make a positive impact in their communities and beyond!

What's Happening

October 5, 2023 

Dear Parents, Guardians and Families,

Our school is participating in the Washington State Healthy Youth Survey during fall 2023. The survey will be given to students in grades 6 through 12 in small school districts. The middle school will be administering the survey during the week of October 23th-27th.

The Healthy Youth Survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, sexual behaviors, abuse, risk and protective factors, and access to school-based services. Survey results are used by schools, communities, and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks. There is more information online at askhys.net 

Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous. There are no codes or information used to match a survey to a student. 

If you have any questions, or would like to excuse your student from taking the survey, please contact the office at (509) 346-2268. 

Thank you, 

Jerred Copenhaver
