I have just been awed by the bad remarks related to the school system. My kids have grown up in this system since Kinder. I don't have super smart kids and if they are having troubles the teachers are on it right away. I am not sure what other parents are asking for. I know first hand, I couldn't ask for anything else from them. I have three kids and that's a lot of teachers to get used to dealing with. I love all their attention to my children. And drugs?? I am glad my kids don't deal with any of that. I have never heard them mention anything about drugs being dealt around. I guess you have to be in that crowd to know about those things. My children know to let an adult know if they see something inappropriate immediately. Yes, it is a challenge for children of lower means. We don't have lots of money to toss around for all these sports things. But the education these kids are getting is out of this world. Getting into sports will be a challenge if you don't have any experience from early years. There's lots of competition. But it's all good for the kids to stay busy with sports and education and not be into things they shouldn't be into like roaming the streets.

I wholeheartedly agree with the post below! It's so sad that the teens here care so much about drugs :(

This school is so over rated and received itt' high marks from its' past history with the past administration. The school is so large and the teachers teach via "look on the webstie" teach yourself approach. Of course there are those few excpetions, but overall the school is all about athletics and not about the student. If you are the 4.5 student and can survive by teaching yourself, then you will do fine. If you are a good student, and need a teacher to teach and care, then this is a terrible fit for your child. There are DRUGS everywhere, and they all turn a blind eye to this. They care about bullying, not drugs, not do they educate the child to the dangers of all the internet. in their forums....just bullying. I think this school is a huge dissapointment from the middle school of Hudson Bend, which has a great prinicpal who is on top of things, cares about his students and the teachers are good as well. I would suggest getting your child out of the public system in LTISD by high school. Somebody needs to wake up to the real deal at Lake Travis. High School..aftter all isn't education at least equal to sports????? Not at this school.

As a freshman at Lake Travis High School, I love my school! Everyone is nice to you unless you are rude to them. There are many advanced courses that text your capabilities and broaden your horizons. Contrary to what someone else said we do not talk about drugs and alcohol often and we are not stuck up. Only one of my teachers receives criticism from the students, so considering the quality of teachers I have had before I would say the teachers here are pretty great!

This school is going downhill fast...I plan on moving out of this district to get my daughter into a better school. Some parents I have spoken to are resorting to homeschooling. Coaches that teach need to be held accountable. They have more passion for coaching and put in less time on making the classroom lessons interesting...mostly students are given "busy work". I'm just so disappointed. I pay high taxes for my kids to go to these schools!

If you write a honest review of the school this site deletes it. Lake Travis caters to the rich kids. If you have a cookie cutter kid then great. Normal people with normal kids go somewhere else.


Posted August 14, 2012

I feel Lake Travis provides an excellent education opportunity for all students who wish to apply themselves. I believe the Lake Travis schools provide learning tools that compete somewhat to those offered in the private schools.

Having a daughter who has grown up in the LTISD since kindergarten and now goes to LTHS, I can honestly say a parent could not ask for any better for their students, especially in public education. There are a lot of high achievers here and test scores reflect that. If a parent is looking for exceptional academics, excellent extracurricular activities in sports and the fine arts, this is the ideal school for that.

this school is for students who are advanced and competitive. I was in the top one percent and I feel like I was nurtured to be potential. Their academic expectations are above average, but not outstandingly unconventional. The students who do well pushed themselves and teacher do support and reward them with opportunities and liberty. The student population is relatively affluent. The students who feel like they do not fit in often do not have the materialism that many are blessed with. The campus is relatively clean. Minimal drugs, alcohol, and gangs compared to other schools. I would recommend this school to those who are aspired to be successful and ambitious.

Our child seems to be one that thinks outside the box, colors outside the lines, and strums to her own beat, which is wonderful in our eyes. In the eyes of LTE she is dificent, and a problem child when it comes to her behavior. We have normal behavioral issues at home, nothing out of the norm for a 4 year old. But they think it reasonable to bring in a behavior specialist, instead of maybe stepping back and looking at the situation. The situation is that she is bored to tears with the work they have for the Pre-K class. She brings home work home, does it in about 2 seconds and then looks at us like, "thats it". We feel they should be looking at the possibility that she may be advanced for her age, but instead they are going to complete opposite direction, thinking that she is behind, and a problem child. The Counselor even told us that she needs to work on "CONFORMING", a word that I personally am not to fond of. We have too many drones walking around this earth as it is. Why do we want to raise more.

This is a good school, but the administrators, the principal and the counselors tell parents that they have no recourse even with blatant evidence of incompetancy on the part of individual teachers. They protect their own to the detriment of the kids, But... most of the teachers are competant, caring. In all, I am glad I sent my child to LTHS.

It depends how you define a "Great School". If you want the Exemplary ratings, it has it. If you want the state champions sports teams, they've got it. If you want your child to be nurtured and allow them to succeed at their pace without stigmatization, then Lake Travis may not be for you.

The schools administration needs a complete makeover. It seems that the students are not the 'priority' when it comes to our kids. We definitely have first hand experience. Instead of correcting problems they would rather justify a coach's or teachers actions. Hopefully, this year will be better.

Having come from the top rated school district in the Chicago suburbs I came to Austin with guarded optomism. Lake Travis has exceeded our expectations. The AP classes, arts and extra curricular oppertunities are great. My son does not play football and contrary to some other responses, LT football does not over shadow or diminish the excellence of LT's other sports (particularily girls volleyball, soccer and basketball), arts or academic curriculums. At the football halftime 2 weeks ago all the National Merit finalists were honored, not sports players. Best move we ever made and glad we are in Lake Travis with 2400 students than Westlake with 5500 students.

For a public school, they do a lot. It's big and diverse and the staff tends to have a heavy hand with discipline.

This school focuses on a variety of components that help students on their ways to a better college career. True, a 98 average barely gets you into the top ten percent, but the AP classes have great teachers and all other teachers are very motivating as well. All sports teams have had a turn in the state playoffs-- tennis won state and the well known football team also won this last year. Students are very involved in the community and full of school pride.

Great school for a highly motivated student and/or college prospect athlete. Not a good school for those kids with any sort of difficulty. Expect little support if your kid gets in trouble, they'd rather you leave than help the kid back on the right track. Football is what this school is all about. Huge stadium, indoor football field and a weight room bigger than our Gold's Gym. They will not build another HS. They'd like to have 10 Middle Schools feeding this one mega-campus. Again great school for a college prospect football player. But most kids are not able to compete in any sports because of the size of the school.Tough to get in College from this school an an 80% average puts you in the 4th quartile.

The institutes of study focusing on arts, sciences, and other areas, while still new, are a great way to get students focused on their futures. Fine Arts education, especially the Cavalier Band and theater arts programs at LTHS, is exceptional, and Agriculture studies are also growing strong. Sure, football gets a lot of emphasis, but the Cavaliers generate great school pride. As for parental involvement, in addition to a strong PTA, the district has an Education Foundation formed by volunteers that funds hundreds of thousands of dollars to the schools each year, primarily to programs in this high school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
