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

Austin Independent School District has offered a wide variety of classes and many different extracurricular activities that aren’t usually provided in other educational districts in Texas. Some of which, that are personally included in my school can be mountain biking and clubs that are blended with classes that are not usually provided as an option in other schools. For example, Nutrition and Wellness helps prepare young students become aware of the hazards of food and the precautions that must be taken before handling the ingredients before cooking properly. Other unique courses that will greatly benefit incoming students are college and readiness courses that will guide your child toward a direct path in the future. Overall the Austin Independent School District has provided many of the students vast learning experiences that can be offered for any student willing to take on the challenge.
I went to James Bowie High School in Austin Independent School District. I enjoyed my time within AISD because of the faculty at my school. I had classes with teachers who valued me, and put time and effort into my learning. My school also provided a wide range of different elective classes to choose from including tons within the fine arts, humanities, business, and STEM. I also appreciated the resources readily available from students. The College and Careers Center and advisor were incredibly helpful in guiding me through college applications, interviews, and decisions. In addition, the district provided Chromebook laptops for all students throughout the district which greatly improved the accessibility of classwork to all students.
