My son is now a senior and has been at Austin since the beginning of middle school and I cannot say enough about the wonderful school. Candidly I think the record of almost 100 percent of seniors moving on to 4 years of further education speaks for itself regarding Austin's commitment to education. ...  Read more

This school is terrible!!! The expectations are so low and teachers allow students to cheat on tests and homework. I was extremely bored in ALL classes! Students are pompous and entitled. Save your money!

Teachers/academics are excellent. Very smart students, lots of homework, tests and quizzes. Probably would not be a good fit for struggling students. Extracurricular activities are good, seem to have more emphasis on sports than arts. New headmaster's focus is questionable. Very focused on trendy ...  Read more

I have really enjoyed my time here so far, everyone here wants to be here and the teachers are always ready to help. People complain there are no clubs but I have clubs 5 days of our six day block schedule. The sports teams have been a great experience.

Good school but most people in my opinion "abuse" their power over the children I also think the prices are awful and there isn't good quality food

No school is going to be perfect, so please don't be naive in thinking your tuition is going to make your childs educational experience perfect. Like anywhere, what you put in is what you get out. Austin has everything available to you if you take advantage of it. There are great teachers who recognize ...  Read more

My child went here and really disliked the school. The courses were mediocre . You would think the faculty would be more engaging and creative considering the amount of tuition the parents pay. When you and your child interviews with the school come prepared with many questions about the curriculum ...  Read more

Our daughter attended Austin for her seventh grade year. She did very well at Austin, earning straight As. She had excellent teachers and loved going there. The academics were top notch though she reported many cases of students misbehaving with no evidence of punishment. What concerned us was the ...  Read more
