I find it super interesting that all of the negative reviews - notably those race-related - are not reflective of the school nor the community. For instance, at the community meetings regarding the Austin rebuild, not a *single* person reflecting the reviews below showed up to offer their support. Not one.

Develops character: Strongly disagree

I have only seen a culture of awkwardness as if you are nice you will get in trouble. If you are helpful, then you will get in trouble. It's very weird in that respect.

This is not a great school at all. The principal seems to be on some sort of power trip and everyone else is walking around like zombies. I am not impressed and the atmosphere is just weird and sad.

Develops character: Strongly disagree

This school is only interested in giving white students a chance to be considered for the gifted program. They do not have any interest in giving any foreigners a chance. Honesty, integrity, and fairness begins at the top. You cannot possibly say that you consider the children to be fair when you show a bias against foreigners and their children even though they are academically gifted.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
Some teachers really are strong academically and care a lot about the same kids. But I have seen where at least one was consistently late, mean to the kids, put kids in the corner etc. and she simply seems to just be there for a paycheck.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Dependong on the teacher you may get too much or none at all. Some teachers don't believe in giving homework. Some believe in giving a lot. It just depends on the individual teacher.

Austin is a wonderful school with great staff, administration and teachers. Our children have thrived at Austin. Could not be happier.

Our experience with this school has been wonderful for all of our children. Engaged teachers and administrators and very active parent involvement with a small intimate community

We have had a very negative experience at Austin. The education is good and some of the teachers are wonderful. However, we have also had teachers who do not seem to care and do not take the time to get to know their students. The school also completely lacks a sense of community and is not willing to volunteer information. You have to know which questions to ask, but that is very hard for a newcomer. Overall, we really regret buying in the Austin district.

Austin has been a great place for my child to learn and grow academically and socially. Every teacher from PreK to current 2nd grade has done a wonderful job teaching my child and communicating well with me as a parent. Overall, there are very caring and experienced teachers at Austin that do a great job as educators. The administration is top notch. The parent support is outstanding in terms of supporting volunteer efforts through time and donations. The combination of teachers, administration, staff, and parents make Austin super special for the students. I've been asked why my child isn't in a private school. My answer is, "why would I do that when I have an amazing public school like Austin right here?"
