School Showcase: Cedar Valley

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]In 1991 Cedar Valley middle school opened its doors. Today, it’s home to more than 1300 students and 100 staff, known as the Jaguars.

The Jaguar home, located at 8139 Racine Trail in Austin, demonstrates a culture of family that welcomes administration, professionals, para-professionals, students, parents, and community members. “We want our students to be academically prepared for high school, as well as develop interpersonal relationships, have confidence, and embrace the strength to take risks” said Principal Matt Groff.

The Jaguars share a common language with the PROWL (Personal Best, Respectful & Responsible, Only Appreciations, Work Ethically, and Lifelong Learner) program. PROWL encompasses behavioral expectations, academic expectations, and social expectations.

The campus currently offers nearly 40 student clubs, offering something for nearly everyone. Cedar Valley is the only middle school in the district that is a PBL instruction based campus, with all 50 core teachers, 4 administrators, 5 LOTE teachers, and several other staff members trained in the Buck Institute PBL model. Further, it’s the only middle school in Texas to be recognized as a No Place for Hate campus for over a decade.

Recently, the campus was awarded and recognized as a Texas School to Watch.
