Overall, Austin East Magnet High School was an amazing school that helped me to find my value as an African American female and to find my voice. As I became a student at Austin East, I had to undergo many challenges that Austin East faced daily. Seeing these face to face helped me realize my love for standing up for civil rights, or generally what is right. Although Austin East needs help with many things like finding more programs to truly suit all its students and bringing in more teachers that genuinely care, I ultimately would not trade it for any school, because it prepared me to be as successful as possible in the future with a path that truly fits me.

My experience at Austin East was honestly the best. In the 4 years I’ve been there it taught me so many things like time management, responsibilities, etc. Everyone in the school is like a family. You feel welcomed in every class. There were some bumps in the road but nothing to big you couldnt hop over. Yes, there are a lot of sterotypes about Austin East and some say AE stands for “almost educated” well those couldnt be anymore of a false statement. Austin East has the most Intelligent and talented students. The programs they have help people, help the students. Teachers go out there way to help you with your work and also to keep you out of trouble. All in all Austin East is honestly the best school hands down in my opinion and I wouldn’t have went to any other.
Austin-East has provided me with endless opportunities to find myself and experience creativity. Throughout my academic career I have met plenty of supportive people, teachers, and sponsors that help me be successful.
