I consider myself very lucky to attend Lake Travis High School. The campus is spacious, with new facilities and plenty of resources.
When it comes to athletics, we can’t be beat. Literally—our school won the state championship in football last year! LTHS has every sport you can think of, but we also have plenty of clubs to join if athletics isn’t your thing. I’m historian for my Model United Nations club and Editor of our Yearbook Department. The best part about LTHS, though, is the faculty. I’ve had amazing teachers who are very passionate about their jobs and care deeply about their students. I’ve built strong relationships with many of them and talk regularly with ones from previous years. I’m happy that I can honestly say that I’ve never had a teacher that I didn’t like at LTHS. The only downside about my school would be the lack of diversity at my school and I definitely hope that changes soon. Otherwise, LTHS is a great school and I highly recommend it!

Heavy focus on sports, particularly football, sometimes at the expense of education. If your child is not top tier, not likely to get a spot. You also need to advocate for your kids, if at either end of the spectrum (gifted or special needs). High school counselors are not meeting with incoming freshman to select classes, due to the size of class, but are 'available' for questions. It's hard for counselors to get to know your kids for college recommendations; my daughter had 3 different counselors in 4 years. Fine Arts does well, but seems to take a back seat to athletics in terms of school support and financing. Academics are solid, some teachers better than others.
Lake Travis ISD has strong leadership accustomed to high involvement expectations of parents. They provide excellent opportunities for the students in all areas - academics, electives, clubs, sports. The administration is also pro-active and supportive of their teachers and staff making for a highly coveted work place.
