Punxsutawney Middle School, containing grades four through seven, shares the campus area with the Punxsutawney High School. The Middle School complex is the newest building in the school district and houses the district's Natatorium, which is used by students and the community throughout the year.  Middle School students have swimming classes, and the pool is open for the public during non-school hours for adult swim times as well as family swim events.  Visitors are welcomed to the entrance of PAMS by a specially-created Phantastic Phil.
