Reagan is a wonderful high school with teachers dedicated to helping the students have an opportunity to succeed academically and otherwise in life. Many of the students come from a background lacking in love, encouragement and family support but they receive all that and more from the faculty and staff at Reagan. The early college offers an opportunity for students to get as much as 2 years of college credit (and an Associates Degree) for free, while still in High School.GREAT GREAT SCHOOL - DEDICATED TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS!!
I'm a grad who has returned to help support Reagan, volunteering on campus and helping to raise awareness and scholarship money for students. Reagan Early College High School is a turn around story that is now being studied and replicated across the state of Texas. A combination of community members and faithful alumni have embraced the vision of principal Anabel Garza. The students and staff are all focused on getting the most out of their educational experience. Reagan is a far better school than it was five years ago.
Austin Reagan High School was THE high school in Austin for many years. I graduated from Reagan when it was one the the best academic and athletic schools in Texas and the nation. Nationally ranked in almost every category. The school lost its sense of direction and purpose for a while but under leadership of the current principal and her staff Reagan has reclaimed its reputation for excellence and high achievement in its student body. I volunteer at the school and recommend Reagan to any student or parent who is seeking an outstanding high school experience and education.
I have volunteered at this school and seen the dedication and competency of the administration and faculty and the motivation and enthusiasm of the student body. These people are all working every day to make Reagan recapture its former glory. It is an inspiration to see students of all ethnicities working together to succeed.
