The 19 acre property for the school was purchased in 1967. Warner Robins Junior High School was constructed in 1970 and opened its doors to teachers and students on August 31, 1970. Named after the city's namesake Brigadier General A. Warner Robins, the school served 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students. In 1991, the school adopted the middle school concept and was re-named Warner Robins Middle School and began serving 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. Starting in 2004, the school underwent a major renovation on all of its buildings. Warner Robins Middle is located on Mary Lane in the tree lined streets of the Shirley Hills neighborhood. The school colors are orange and white, with black often used as an accent color; the mascot is a Warrior, symbolizing the school's spirit; the yearbook is known as the Calumet.
There have been five different principals leading the school. The first, Joe Musslewhite from 1970-1983; Larry Beck 1984-1996; Henry C. Eldridge 1996-2001; Donald Warren 2001-2012 and currently, Brett Wallace. The gymnasium is named for and dedicated to the first principal, Joe Musslewhite.
