If your child has a learning difference but does not meet criteria for an IEP, this school is awful. Awful. The county psychologist (representing Austin) and upper administration's response to my child's independent testing were stunningly disrespectful and rude. Hire an educational advocate to navigate this school if your child has learning differences.

Worst school for Pre K kids! The teachers are cold and rude to parent's queries. Won't even bother to reply on emails and will not try to comfort the kids if they are crying. They are busy doing their paper work while the kids are arriving in morning and expect them to stop crying and settle on their own. They are happy with only those kids who do not bother them much!!

My little one 1st grade teacher tries to apply military style discipline. in her class. I wonder if she realizes kids can't be disciplined like adults and she needs to be a little more indulgent.

Our kid joined the school last year in kindergarten and we could not be happier. Teachers in this school are very dedicated towards providing the best to kids. Our kid is an advanced learner and the classroom teacher kept her excited by providing education material for the next level. One of the best schools....

The only qualification needed for a child to qualify for the gifted(discovery) program is for their parents to donate fundraisers, the more money you give the more good chances for your child to qualify, it doesnt matter if she's talented, only thing that austin needs is your money!!!

My son is starting in Jan and the front office was not helpful and simply answered all my questions:"It is in the handbook" I hope the teachers are more friendly than them. Moving in the middle of the school year is hard enough, I want my son to feel welcome and comfortable.

Open House was simply chaos and communication with the front office staff definitely can be improved. Luckily, my daughter is in 3rd grade and her teachers are great!

My daughter have been attending Austin since Oct-2008. Initially she struggled little bit. The class teacher took care of her. Now she is enjoying her KG. They gave special english training for other country students. The class teacher is calling parents-teacher(one to one) meeting for every couple of months.

Austin is a top rate school with a good balance of academics and fun (per my children). From top down, the school is run like a successful business and as a result, we (kids and parents) can't say enough great things about the program there.

My children have been attending Austin since November of 06 and I must say that this school thus far has been the best thing that has happen to my children s academic and social life. My third grader have been faced with many academic and social problems that was not giving the proper attention at his previous schools, and the attention and response that has been giving to his challenges is by far more then I could ever ask for. My family was greeted with a warm welcome from the teachers and students here at Austin and I proud to be apart of this school.
