This institution is fanastic. I myself graduated from here and the rigorious work load in the Enriched Honors progrom truly has made all the difference in high school. I recommend it to any student who's looking for a challenge. Other than the academics offered, I was also a member of the award-winning, at one point undefeated, Austin Academy Sppech Team. Children interested in theatre should defiantely look in to this school so they may have a chance to work under Mrs. Chapman. The athletic department is also very impressive. Lovely facilities and very safe. At all school dances parents were involved. If you choose to take this mission on. Good Luck and it's great to be an Austin Academy Eagle!
