In my experience with Austin Independent School District (AISD) I found myself surrounded by supportive teachers and administration. They work tirelessly to create a successful environment for every student. For example, the administration at Austin High created distinct academies for every student, Classical Studies, Science and Innovation, Academy of Global Studies and the Academy for Design and Technology. These academies allow students to choose their desired career path and take classes that positively benefit their future. If changes were to be added to AISD I would suggest faster decision making as a first priority. Although AISD is great when communicating with parents and staff, decision making, such as the spring break extension due to the Coronavirus feels like a drawn out plan to inevitably cancel the semester as a whole. This being said my school district could improve on making its intentions clear in order to suppress parent, student, and even teacher confusion.

I have always been in this district from my very first day of kindergarten, i'v gone to many different schools in the district. Recently my high school (was known as Reagan high school) had a name change for the year 2018-2019. The last class that would graduate from Reagan high school would be class of 2019. Im a senior this year and our class (2020) will be the first class to graduate from Northeast High school! I think that's really cool that we are going to be a legacy one day just for out name change
High degree of excellent teachers and counselors! The opportunities and experiences, as well as the academics of the classes I received, prepared me well for college.
Thank you!
