The sixth middle school in Judson ISD was named Cibolo Creek Middle School during the March 21 board of trustees meeting.

The details

Prior to the selection of a name, Judson ISD staff launched a survey for district stakeholders to provide input on a name that reflects the residential community, geographic area or feature of the neighborhood, the local municipality, or to honor an outstanding person who has attained educational prominence in the district.

Chief Communications Officer Nicole Taguinod said over 500 people made recommendations on the naming of the new school. Around 126 of the names recommended honored outstanding people from Judson ISD.

The board of trustees made the decision to name the school after a geographical feature in the region.

Trustee Monica Ryan suggested that Cibolo Creek Middle School be the name for the new school due to residents in the district that live along Cibolo Creek being the most likely to attend the new school based on district feeder patterns.

The name of the new school was approved unanimously. The school will be located adjacent to Wortham Oaks Elementary School and is expected to be completed by the start of the 2025-26 school year.
