Ooltewah Middle School opened in 1977 and is home to the Owls. We currently have an enrollment of approximately 860 students in grades 6-8. Ooltewah Middle is a unique Title I facility alive with teachers and staff who share a joy in learning. We believe that the middle school student has specific needs and tailors curriculum and teaching strategies to those needs. The tone is set by the leadership of the administrative team and by the positive atmosphere of the school.

Expectations of teachers for student learning are high and teachers give students personal encouragement. All students receive instruction in English, reading mathematics, science, and history or geography. Our school offers many Related Arts options including our STEM programs, Computer Technology, Chorus, Instrumental Band, Physical Education, Art, Health Education, Bible History, Creative Dramatics, Spanish, and German.
