Christian County Middle School


The Christian County Middle School consists of approximately 132,000 square feet.  Designed with a “Main Street” theme it is a unique school to the area.  Main corridors are labeled “Broadway” and “Main” Streets while classroom corridors are labeled “6th”, “7th” or “8th” Avenue according to grade level.  Street signs and individually unique building signs are used for way finding.   Major spaces, such as the library, cafeteria, gymnasium, and auditorium, have been given their own identity to create a fun and exciting environment for the students.

A stroll through the corridors is reminiscent of a bustling 1950’s downtown with storefronts reading CCMS Diner, CCMS Theater, Art Gallery, and CCMS Arena.  Daylighting has been used in the corridors, cafeteria, media center, office, and classrooms to enhance student learning.  Energy consumption and finish selections throughout the school were scrutinized to obtain optimum energy savings and comfort levels.
