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.

As a Senior currently going to Austin High School in El Paso Texas I feel that I can safely review Austin High School with the knowledge that I have required over my experience. First off is the Academics, Austin like most schools in EPISD does have normal academics and really has nothing special to make it stand out from the rest of the schools, Second The teachers are motivated and really determined to help the students, Third The school mostly has Hispanic students, Fourth the sport teams are not that good, Fifth they take safety very seriously, Sixth the school lacks school spirit, Seventh the food is okay to sometimes bad, Seventh It feels like they try to ready the kids that are in top ten or top twenty rather than everyone for college. Overall Austin lacking in a lot of areas, but still has the ability to teach students what they need to know.
Austin High School was my best experience as a student there. All my four years attending were very exciting not only friendship wise but education wise aswell. Austin offers many opportunities with dual-credit classes, clubs, and he criminal justice program there. They help you develop many skills academically and personal use for our future as an adult. The diversity there is very well too when it comes to culture.Though I do wish Austin offered more dual-credit classes or other curriculums to the students advantage to learn more that could be beneficial to them into their future. In conclusion, Austin does a very great job in education skills but more exposure to college classes for dual-credit to benefit the student in their future careers.
