Kaiserslautern Middle School originally opened in 1953 as Kaiserslautern American Junior High School. The original school was part of the Kaiserslautern School District. The junior high school occupied three buildings which were part of the larger school complex of an elementary school, the junior high, and a high school.

By the mid-nineties, Kaiserslautern Junior High was reconfigured as Kaiserslautern Middle School and housed grades six through eight. There were 520 students enrolled for the 1993-94 school year. The middle school is located on Vogelweh Air Base on the housing side, just down the street from Armstrong’s Club. Many students attending the school either live in Vogelweh Base Housing or the surrounding villages in the area.
