  • This school isn't good at all. Many of the teachers are decent; however, the administration is very lacking, and the class courses are far too focused on state standards instead of actually getting you someplace. Quite a few of the classes are too slow-paced and don't yield any real learning either.

  • This is a horrible school to attend. I moved to austin just before ninth grade and went into the school ready to get going. The teachers are not very intelligent at all. There is a lot of violence in the school and throughout the whole community. Horrible experience from an education standpoint.
