Austin Academy is talented/gifted school with a lot of diversity, which I really liked. Most of my teachers were nice, only a couple of them were really mean.
It is a great school to advance your education. It is definitely the best middle school in the district based on academics alone and is optimal because application to high school will also be easier.
