About Us

Welcome to Orchard Knob Middle School 

Orchard Knob Middle  - Originally a Chattanooga City Public School, Orchard Knob Junior High School was opened in 1961. After the merger of Chattanooga City and Hamilton County Schools in 1997, Orchard Knob Junior High School became Orchard Knob Middle School. A new wing was constructed and opened in 1995, which currently contains eighth grade classrooms and a science lab.

In January 2018, Orchard Knob Middle was selected to be a site for a VW eLab.

Mission Statement

  • A student-centered program
  • A supportive, caring environment
  • An accepting of personal responsibilities
  • A respect and consideration for all
  • A positive attitude toward school
  • A clear academic challenge
