I enjoyed going here for the two years that I did. I found my family in the Theatre Departement. The school is situated in the most diverse location in Texas. This well reflected in the school's population. Its academics are challenging but not overbearing depending on the academic path you choose. Overall it's important to figure yourself out and I feel you can achieve that here................................................................and that's all, folks!

I like that I made good connections with my teachers and principals, especially my Dance directors. Throughout my 4 years at SFA, every one of my teachers had the best open communication with their students. Teachers at SFA want their students to be successful, while in school, and in life once they graduate. They make themselves available for morning, and evening tutorials in all subjects, which further indicates they enjoy what they do! SFA is one of the most diverse schools in Fort Bend ISD, with the best school culture. I couldn't attended a better high school. As an alum, I will always cherish my memories, friendships, and dance sisterhood.

Their art, choir, orchestra, band, and dance programs are absolutely stellar and go above and beyond the regular high school standard. The administration is also very helpful and welcoming to the students, making the overall experience for students a good one. Overall, Austin High School is an incredible school that strives to give the best for its students.
