    Austin Elementary is a school above the rest... It is a school that takes pride in it's community that it serves. My daughter attended Austin from Kinder through 5th grade. Now that she is in 7th she often says how much she misses her time at Austin. Thank you Austin for building such a strong foundation of learning with my most prized possessions~ my children.

    Austin is a wonderful school. I have a child with autism attending here and they are incredibly good at recognizing his needs and meeting them. He has been at this school for 3 years now and he thrives in this environment. They even have him in regular classes with typical children. The principal knows most of the students because he doesn't spend all day behind his desk. He is loved by teachers students and parents alike creating a warm atmosphere for learning.

    Horrible administration brilliant teachers. If your child is average behind or more focused on other activities then academics this just might be the school for you.

    This is an excellent school. It was recently named a National Blue Ribbon School. Austin state test scores are among the best in the state in almost every category. You children will learn to love learning. You will love the open parent teacher communication. Its HOST program and other extracurricular programs are a model for what is right with schools today. It would be hard to find a better elementary school locally public or private. It has been a blessing to our family

    Though extra-curriculars are excellent academics are behind area private schools. Seems that one should first interact with teachers from private schools before bragging about Austin teachers. There s a big difference in quality.

    Austin Elementary is a great school. The test scores have been consistently high and the school is currently being nominated for an NCLB national award. In addition to the high academic achievement there are many extracurricular activities in which the students can participate. Children can participate in a simulated space shuttle chess club science club choir art club and may more fun activities that occur at the school. The teaching staff is very stable with many of the teachers having been there since the school opened in 1990. The school climate is very warm and positive. Parents are always made to feel welcome. This school would be a great place for any child to attend.

    Host has helped my children to become avid readers. The school almost has a private school feeling with all of the parent involvement.

    This is my child's first year at Austin. It is an excellent school. The teachers are great! Academic programs are outstanding. There are a lot of extra-curricular activities. I regret I did not send my child to this school earlier.

    I could not have chosen a better school for my daughter. This has been the best experience and the staff is so positive. My daughter is in second grade and so far has had the best teachers. Starting with Ms Lemos the Ms Fontana and now Ms. Dix. I can't wait for the next year to se just how much better it can get for her! What a blessing to know she attends the BEST!
