Lake Travis is a great high school if you are looking for a very strong sports background. The school also is very prosperous in the academic portion. They offer wide ranges of classes for students from regular to Advanced placement. The teachers can be helpful, some care more than others about the well being pf their students. It is extremely safe with two cops patrolling the campus and two drug dogs circling the school searching for delinquent kids. The facilities are exceptional and they have a program for pretty much every kid you could think of. Only complaint is the biased background, such as towards the kids in the athletic program. I noticed if you play a competitive sport such as football you are automatically favored by some teacher. It is unfair bias, except its beneficial if you are a football player!

I attended lake travis for four years, it was an amazing opportunity to make friends and have a great quality education. Late Travis is a really big school, therefore, getting to class was always a hassle! Something that I liked about Lake Travis is their staff, they are humble, friendly people that are always there to help you. they always have a solution for your problem and when they don't they will figure it out. If I could change something about Lake Travis, it would probably be more involvement in the clubs.
Great High School Experience! I love the culture and atmosphere of the school. School spirit is everyone and everyone is proud to be a cavalier. From the amazing teachers, to the friendly administration, to the hard working fine arts, and the talented students. Lake Travis High School is a very different environment from every other school and is one I am proud to be a part of.
