Clay-Chalkville Middle School
altClay-Chalkville Middle School students are from both the Clay Elementary and Chalkville Elementary school attendance zone.  It includes grades sixth through eighth with enrollment at 1,093, the largest middle school enrollment in the Jefferson County system.

The main building was built in 1996, but another gym, wrestling practice room and band room were added in 2010. This also allowed for more space for an expanded choir room and a new computer room. 

Recent Academic Accomplishments:
  • Over one-third of the student body is in Pre-advanced Placement courses to help them excel when they get into the AP classes in high school.
  • CCMS will serve as a pilot school for an American Federation Innovation Grant where teachers are writing curriculum units that line up with Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts. These units will be shared with other language arts teachers in the Jefferson County Board of Education system.
  • The CCMS band has doubled the student enrollment in the last five years, now with 400 members. They consistently receive superior ratings in contests.


Budding journalists can learn news-reporting skills early at CCMS. The school newspaper, The Paw Prints, started publication in 2008 and comes out once every six weeks.

Extra Curricular Activities:
Band, choir, drama club, student council, debate team, scholars bowl team, athletics, cheerleading, dance team, First Priority, science Olympiad team, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Future Business Leaders of America, FCCLA and math club.
