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!
Review Austin High School
School that wins in athletics and has the number one high school football in the state of Alabama. School that wins in academics by having students go to nationals to compete. School that wins in creating more opportunities by having classes opened for students that do not have English as there first language to help understand and having classes that will prepare students for their future career.
The teachers were very involved with all students. I really liked how the campus was set up like an actual college campus, it was a great way to get a college feel before actually going off to college. The amount of school spirit is also very strong coming from all students, parents and faculty and staff.
