Sarah Beth Lively Middle School

Our School

Lively Middle School, located on historic South Congress Avenue and just down the street from the Texas Capitol, serves approximately 1,000 students. Lively was founded in 1886 and has been in its current location since 1911. Lively is proud of its rich history of educating Austin’s children. Our mission, “To provide educational opportunities that inspire global thinking and social responsibility,” is met through diverse course offerings and rich extracurricular activities.
