PROFILE

Corbin Middle School is the only middle school in the Corbin Independent School District and is located in southeastern Kentucky which has a population of approximately 15,000 people. Corbin is midway between Knoxville, TN and Lexington, KY and has the distinction of being near Cumberland Falls State Park as well as the unusual feature of being located in three counties: Whitley, Knox, and Laurel.

Corbin Middle School is a true middle school with an emphasis on teaming. Our Advisory Program is a key component to the middle school concept. We embrace this concept by committing to meet the educational and developmental needs of our young adolescents. Our Exploratory classes allow students to choose their areas of interest from 28+ different offerings in Arts/Humanities, Practical Living and Career Studies.

Corbin Middle School strives to be the best it can be. Our school is most proud of the academic success we have had for several years. Each year, we strive for our students to be the best possible and obtain the skills necessary while here at the middle school to achieve at high levels in their future.
