Austin High School was a great place to complete my high school education! I was able to intern at elementary school my Junior/ Senior years as a teaching assistant, which in turn opened many doors after graduation.

I chose to attend Austin because I felt that I would be academically and athletically successful. That is definitely the case. I've played sports on the varsity level all four years of my attendance. I am currently ranked in the top 5 of my class. The school environment, teachers and students are friendly and wonderful. Although it is not the most diverse school, with over 90% of the students being Hispanic, the administrative staff makes it a great all around school.
My experience at Austin High School was quite the adventure. I graduated in the Class of 2014 in the top 10% of my class along with honors from JROTC, science club, and the robotics team. I had excellent teachers there that helped me shape to the person I am today. In JROTC my instructors were the main people that encourged me to pursue a higher education which was to go to college. My 12th grade physics teacher Mr. Johnson was the one that helped me decide what I wanted to major in which is in computer science, he was also the teacher in charged of the robotics team. Overall all Austin HS prepared me to get ready for college.
