Chambersburg Public Schools

The Chambersburg Area School District public education system strives to achieve a balance between academic, career and technical and extracurricular activities. Chambersburg Area School District subscribes to the belief that public education is a responsibility shared by schools, families, and members of the community. Please take the time to review the Chambersburg Area School District and its various features.

Chambersburg Area Middle School

A 2001-2002 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, serves all sixth and seventh grade students of the Chambersburg Area School District. It is the philosophy of the Chambersburg Area Middle School to address the needs of pre-adolescent and early adolescent youth. The main theme is to provide concern for the identity, self-concept, and personal security of the middle-school-aged students. The middle school program is child centered with an emphasis on a wide variety of learning experiences. Through the use of the "team concept", an environment is created where the child, not the program, is most important and where the opportunity to succeed exists. Students are grouped with flexibility according to their academic and social needs and move independently among the teachers. Instruction in physical education, vocal music, instrumental music, art, and health are part of the curriculum for both grades. Sixth grade students will experience keyboarding, computer applications, and precision writing. Seventh grade students will have Financial Wellness for Teens, technology education, and family and consumer science.
