    7 Best Private High Schools in Austin

    High School Senior: Regents School of Austin has been such a blessing to me during these high school years. The learning environment, teachers, community, and academics truly make this the school to attend. Unlike most schools Regents helps students ask the critical questions and then equips students to answer those questions. There is a heavy focus on communication, so every student is taught to speak articulately. We all know how to discuss, build ideas with each other, and eloquently communicate our ideas through writing and words. The teachers facilitate a productive engaging learning environment that makes class something to look forward to, while mentoring us in every aspect of our lives. The community at Regents is supportive, tight knit, joyful, and wise. Our small class size allows us to become extremely close and eliminates exclusive cliques. I know I can look to my friends, classmates, and teachers to support and encourage me as I try something new, or face a daunting challenge. I can turn to them for wisdom and guidance, and trust in their advice. The academics challenge me and keep me busy, with a healthy amount of stress. Regents works hard to challenge each student, but never overwhelm anyone and leave us all time to do more things that we love. School is never easy, but it is always do able. Reflecting over my many days at Regents School of Austin, I can say with certainty that I would choose it again and again as my high school.
