Austin High School Reviews
Austin High School has great teachers, a diverse student body, and an administration that truly cares about the students. Students have plenty of opportunities to get involved if they want to. I believe I will be well prepared for college and I will always be proud to be a black bear!
Austin High School is the best high school in Alabama ! It is a great work environment & they push you forward. If you are struggling, teachers & faculty is always around to help. They even have tutoring Tuesdays & Thursdays after school w/ transportation home. The sports & school spirit is very awesome & very supportive. At Austin everyone is family. People around you don't give up. You can go the distance. I love Austin & most of all I love being a black bear !
I like the environment of Austin. I like how the teachers are very focused on you learning and increasing your test scores! I think they should work on just everything all together. No school is perfect.
