The school is quite big, so you could possibly get lost. But, after a few months you'll start cherishing this beautiful castle. There's are many different cultures. The sports are probably the best part about AHS. The teams are amazing!

What I like about this high school is that there are a lot of academic help whenever we as students need it. We have a person that is dedicated to help us apply to scholarships, colleges or anything that is school related. He also sends emails to every student with a list of scholarship opportunities. Overall, the school is really dedicated on helping the students that really needs the help. The school also brings people from colleges and depending if we are interested we can go and ask questions about the college and admission requirements. This is a school that definitely offers many opportunities to students that really want to success.
If I could redo my high school experience I would still go to Austin Senior High School. I believe that our schools students were very involved. Not only would parents go to a basketball game or a softball game but us students would also go. The amount of support that all the sports in our school get is incredible. We are all there for each other and I think that's why my high school experience was so great. Because no matter what sport you were in or why you were in it, there was always a student and parent crowd cheering you on from the sidelines!
