Welcome to Cedar Valley High School, home of the Aviators! CVHS is a unique high school that is unlike any other.
When students first walk into the school, they are met by the Wright Brother’s aircraft. As eyes settle down across the commons, students view the F22 that appears to be landing through the large library window. Forty-five airline seats and aviation details are carefully placed throughout the school. Checkerboard features in the gym (“The Hangar”) and football field (“The Runway”) are reminiscent of the markings used for Allied aircraft in WWII.
All these items were designed to inspire our students and provide them a constant physical reminder that they can create and pursue their dreams. Likewise, we want our students to see the that STEM content areas can help transpire greatness.
This summer the faculty and staff had the opportunity to take a retreat to Timp Lodge near Sundance. We entered as strangers and left as a family. We all caught the vision of reaching our "next level" so we can help our student reach theirs.
Our grand opening celebration was an epic day. Student Council and Flight Crew worked tirelessly to prepare the school for the grand opening. They cleaned windows, decorated, they learned to drive golf carts, they were tour guides, and they took care of our huge list of dignitaries. Helicopter companies around the state donated time and money to be at our event. They flew in several of our dignitaries and then had their helicopters on display for the community to see. All of our performing arts groups performed . . . and school hadn't even started yet. There were carnival booths and a climbing wall.
All of this in an effort to let the community know we are here for them. This is OUR high school. The entire community of the Cedar Valley--Eagle Mountain, Cedar Fort, and Fairfield--can join us in reaching their next level.
Step 4: Engage in the Vision
Here at Cedar Valley, I have more opportunities than I think I have ever been given. There is not a teacher here that doesn't want to help me succeed; the atmosphere here given by the teachers and admin make me want to come to school every day. I have so much fun here and I wouldn't give it away for anything. --Jesse Roberts, senior.
The Cedar Valley Cross Country team had a fantastic first season. Both boys and girls teams qualified for the state championships by placing in the top 6 teams at our region meet. Every single runner improved their time from the beginning of the season to the end of the season. All of the runners are hard working, positive, kind, and dedicated. They really embody what it means to be an Aviator, and they will continue to do great things!
Our first season as a tennis team went great! The first ever tennis team at Cedar Valley was filled with freshmen and sophomores who experienced being on a competitive high school team for the first time and improved their techniques in our short season. We had one girl qualify for state and had more girls who made it fairly far in regions. One thing we were known for, and something that we pride ourselves on, is how nice these girls are off the courts, but how driven/aggressive their technique is on the courts. We are so excited to see how this team will grow and improve over the next few years. Our hopes for next year are to get more girls qualified for the State tournament and to go even further in regions. We also hope to continue to improve and show the state that we are the team to beat! --CAITLYN EAKINS
With Spring fast approaching, several boys are preparing for boys tennis at the end of February. Coach Hampton is excited to build a team that will fiercely compete at state. But, Coach Hampton wants much more than a state championship! He wants to build the type of character in these boys that will last their whole life. "If I can instill integrity, hard work, and discipline in these young men, they will go so much further in life than any championship". --Bob Hampton
The Cedar Valley Girls Soccer team had an amazing year finishing 12-5 on the year and getting to the State Quarter Finals in their first year. Along with this achievement, the girls finished second in the region taking it to the last came against Ogden to decided the eventual region champions. Highlights of the season involves Sophomore Presley Devey being 4A Top Goalscorer with 40 goals in the season, 15 ahead of the next top scorer in the state. The Aviators also beat fellow 4A schools with scores of 7-2, 5-0 and the biggest win of all was a 2-1 win against eventual state champions Ogden. Coach Hart is super proud of his girl soccer team and can't wait to see what the future holds for these young ladies. --Mitchell Hart
The football season was a great success. The team was able to win 5 games including homecoming and a playoff game. The 5 wins were 4 more than the 3 other first year schools won combined this year. We were also only the 4th first year school to host and win a playoff game. We were able to put lots of points on the board and recorded two shutouts on the season defensively. We believe we started a good foundation for future Aviators football. --Weston Zabriskie
The boys basketball team has come a long way since we, as a coaching staff, first met them last spring at some simple open gyms. We are extremely grateful for the type of character that they possess. As a boys basketball program we have a cum. GPA of 3.5! They are students first and foremost and athletes second and we are pleased that they have taken this to heart. On the physical side of things, we have challenged our team to compete against the best the state has to offer. In many spring, summer and fall tournaments we were often the only 4A team in the field, competing only against 6A schools. We have done very well! As our season is now under way, we have continued that same plan. Our preseason schedule is littered with 5A and 6A schools to test our team to the fullest and they have stepped up to the challenge. At time of printing we hold a record of 3-1 with only 2 more preseason games, both against larger schools. Our boys are smart, disciplined, and motivated. The very things that make Cedar Valley Aviators as a whole, the place to be!
Cedar Valley Girls Volleyball represented the Aviator spirit well in play this year. We were so grateful for our athletes who brought different skills to court and rounded off our team with multi-faceted drive. With almost 40 girls, we really made a diverse family. Cedar Valley Girls Volleyball received a team award for Academic All-State, we had several players make honorable mention for the Utah All-Valley Team and several players selected for First, Second and Honorable Mention teams for Region 10. Way to go ladies! -- Coach Whitney

At the Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City, Dance Company won 1st place in the Cambridge Division with their ensemble entitled, "Verse in the Waves," this is an amazing accomplishment for a first year team. They will be putting on the first Dance Department Concert entitled "Reimagined," in December and look forward to continuing grow perform as a team.
Drama has been working hard this first year to create some amazing work. Our students scored straight "superiors" and" excellents" at their first Shakespeare Competition in Cedar City in October. In November they produced their first mainstage musical, "Catch Me If You Can." The students have also been working hard producing all of the other auditorium events, including concerts, and meetings. The students are excited for the two remaining shows this year, and are going to continue to do amazing hings.
Cedar Valley Ballroom Team
Cedar Valley Ballroom consists of three separate teams: Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Freshman Team. Our students strive to find the synergistic balance between high levels of technical proficiency, self motivation, and commitment to team membership. These skills will transfer to their social well-being, academic success, and anything else our students might pursue throughout their lives. At a recent competition, the Pleasant Grove Dancesport Invitational, we took home three first place trophies in team events, as well as several high place marks in individual events. At BYU Fall Dancesport, Cedar Valley Ballroom won the team match event.
The Cedar Valley Crimson Regiment Marching Band has had a very successful inaugural season.

Student Council has started their inaugural year by demonstrating strong leadership and a desire to start new and exciting traditions. They have put on a stag dance, Homecoming, and will be hosting Sadies on November 16th. They created a new event, "Trick or Treat the Terminals" in which they invited the community to come trick-or-treat here at CVHS. They worked with many clubs and programs to decorate classrooms, dressup, and interact with kids in the community in what hope to become and long standing CVHS tradition. In recent weeks they have made a strong effort to reach out to all students, to share their love, and support to them. They worked to let them know that as their student leaders, they are more than party planners, but a support in times of need. CVHS StuCo is here for students, faculty, and the Cedar Valley community!
Life Flight is a peer to peer leadership and suicide prevention class. Students are trained in building happiness, resilience as well as suicide awareness and prevention. We have a class presidency that helps lead the class activities, Instagram page, well-being campaigns and suicide awareness presentations. The students are all expected to participate in the mental health run fundraiser and group service project.
Flight Crew has taken flight with 12 members and has currently served the CV Administration and Athletic teams in a variety of events from the Grand Opening to all home athletic events. The Crew receives real life experience in planning events, working with leadership and budget guidelines. The Flight Crew is passionate in making events at Cedar Valley High School the best there is in the state! -Sharon Mardesich
The Prostart class is busy preparing all sorts of dishes for different groups of people. We recently had the opportunity to make appetizers for the Principles of the Cedar Valley cluster. We also got to attend a ProStart training where the students learned how to fabricate a chicken and got to perfect their knife skills. ProStart is also preparing cinnamon rolls and cookies that they sell at Charlie Victor bakery. There is never a dull moment in the Cedar Valley ProStart class. -Amie Peterson

We strive to give our students a hands-on learning experience as they develop skills relating to animal science, plant and soil science, and agriculture technology. This experience is initiated through classroom experience, and enhanced through FFA participation and individualized agriculture experiences that are designed by the students, for the students.
Below is a list of projects and accomplishments of our agriculture program:
- Classes - Our welding students have passed their safety exams with 100%, and are helping Mrs. Jenkins set up our brand new ag shop. Many students volunteer extra time to help.
- FFA - one of our horse judging teams took first place at our very first competition at Snow College! Scarlett Kotch also took first place with her individual score, beating almost 150 other FFA members from across the state.
- Supervised Agriculture Experiences (SAEs): Our students are developing their experiential learning projects. One student I wanted to highlight has created his own leatherworking business. He designs and creates handmade jewelry, belts, bags, chaps and is currently working on making a saddle.
Taking Learning to the Next Level: Community Partners
We are a team of eight teachers, six para-educators, and several specialists that strive for every student to reach their maximum potential. Every student can learn. Every student has a future. We are here to ensure that everyone has a chance to level up and become more than they ever dreamed. -DJ Conger
Meet Our Coaches
As teacher coaches we get the opportunity to work with all of our teachers to see what we can do to support them in and out of the classroom. Our goal is to help them help all of our students. Our first steps have been building relationships with our new and young faculty and we have really enjoyed getting to know them and seeing the great things they are already doing for the students at Cedar Valley High School. Our job is to help guide teachers and build even more capacity to the amazing professional faculty at our school.
