My experience at Austin-East has had its ups and downs but overall i can say that this was the best high school I could have ever attended. This school has so many people who care about your future and want to see you do great things in life. Teachers I have had in the past 4 years, I have been able to make great friendships with about half of them. Austin-East is the type of high school that does not get attention for being a well rounded, performing arts, magnet school but attention on where we are located or maybe that most of our student body is African American, no one really takes the time out to see that we have very talented students or even that are education is growing every year. Austin East has taught me that no matter where you come from , there is always success out there for everyone.

So far my experience at Austin East has been wonderful, I love my school so much an it has given me so many opportunities that I wouldn't have had at any other school. I love the programs and academics and my teachers, I feel that the school really wants you to exceed and pushes you too, one thing I would change is the communication between the school administration to parents though, other than that I think Austin East is awesome.
I actually love this school! I would choose this school again if I had to do it all over again. It's a great performing arts school. It is a project grad school which means they support and motivate you to graduate. The academics are expressed through they way everyone learns. Overall, I love my school.
