Was an ok/good school definitely improved somewhat in my last year there. I wish the would pay more attention to the SDOA magnet program, they care more about the New Tech program, the Academy was practically gone by my senior year ( got rid of the fire tech program, I’m not even sure if the law program exists anymore, they just have criminal justice now ) But overall their are though there are a few teacher who don’t care, most love their job/the students.

Austin High School is a great school. The reason being is because I believe it's such a diverse school where everybody gets along. The students at Austin High School are always showing school spirit and are very passionate about doing what they love. Not only are the students passionate about doing what they love, so are the teachers. The teachers at Austin are always willing to help out their students no matter they what. Unlike some other schools, Austins teachers try their absolute hardest to make sure that their students have the quality education they deserve.
I have attended Austin High School since my freshman year. It has been great to me. I've learned so many things, made numerous amounts of friends, found many opportunities, and became a part of something bigger than myself. While we may be considered not such a great school compared to others in the district, the kids and staff are doing their best despite many of the circumstances of being from low income neighborhoods. I would like to see the perception of Austin and its student change to a good one.
