Austin Career Education Center Reviews

Austin is a really good school. I saw that because they have staff members in there that will go out they way to help you out. Their teaching skills i different but you will catch on to it. They treat you guys like family. It's not a all African Americans school but you will see a handful of African Americans. African Americans at Austin treat everyone with respect just like the teachers. The teachers would make sure you guys don't be behind on class work. If you guys need help the teachers is always there to help. I just love Austin Career Education center. They prepare you for college. Their sports team isn't that good because kids focus on their education before sports.

The staff at Austin Career Education Center are all well rounded! They treat us students as if we're one big family and it's well appreciated. So many students enter this school with a dream and these teachers never crush them but they push us towards them. I recommend anyone to go to Austin Career Education Center. Little packages pack a powerful punch. This school is like the story of David and Goliath where the students are David facing the big giant Goliath telling us that we can't make it. With the help of the staff like the Lord helped small David he conquered the challenging giant and that's what the staff of Austin Career Education does for us!
Best option ever for troubled youth who want a second chance to graduate. The staff Does a great job at pushing you to get your diploma. Even though it is an alternative highschool they still give you the real highschool experience.
