At Austin High School there are both, good and bad things occurring. I like that Administration is very active within the students personal and educational lives. The teachers oftentimes ask simple questions similar to "How are you today?" that the students appreciate. What I would like to see a change in is the food quality and safety precautions. During my time here, we have had three safety scares. The administration did everything they could, but it was after the fact. I want the students to know their safety is a priority not after an occurrence, but before. As soon as a student goes into their school they should be able to go to school without worrying about their safety.

I moved to this school at the end of my Junior year and it was totally different compared to my last school. Every aspect was different, the teachers, students, and curriculum. I noticed that the students didn't care about doing anything except leaving school. Most the teachers do not even try to teach students, only a handful. At this school you just come for attendance not even learning, because the whole day you are just sitting there. With the handful of teachers that actually try and are helpful many recognize them for that. Including the college center, that is the best thing at this campus. Starting from freshman year to senior year they help you to get to the next level of education, any questions they answer with no problem. They deserve more credit than what they get because they are the ones getting the students to become successful citizens in the community by pushing the students to do better.
My daughter is in the special education due to health reasons (OHI) Other Health Impaired. The SPED Director along with the Case Manager and the Nurse has been so amazing in comparison to Heights High School and Milby High School. The SPED department understands the needs of the student and I can't thank them enough for helping my daughter to feel like she belongs. Thank you Austin High School you have helped to include my child and we can not thank you enough!
