Croughton schools were located on a small base with large schools. In 1984 the elementary and middle school incorporated into a new contemporary design building. The elementary school was located in the south wing, common areas were in the center, and the middle school was in the north wing.

During the operation of the middle school, the enrollment was between 375 and 425 students with a staff of about twenty-five. The first principal was Dr. Charles Sims followed by Mr. Arnie Watland, Dr. Ken Zebrowski, and Mr. Larry Howard. The assistant principal was Ann Degner.

The middle school was structured using middle school concepts and operated with interdisciplinary teams with a large number of specialists in academic and vocational areas. Students participated in extracurricular programs such as lunchtime sports and clubs for computers, bikes, gardening, and foreign languages. Academic special programs included SWEP – Schoolwide Enrichment Program, Spelling Bee, Geography Bee, Math Counts, National Junior Honor Society, newspaper and yearbook. There were three levels of band for the school. Croughton Middle School hosted the district Odyssey of the Mind competition in 1992 with participants from Cuba, Bermuda, Newfoundland, Iceland, Norway and other UK schools.

For the 1993-94 school year the schools at Croughton were consolidated into one unit school, Croughton American School.
