Back to School! Austin Area School Districts

August 2, 2018 | By Schuyler Williamson

Summer is coming to an end and it’s time to start thinking about going back to school! No matter what your education needs – public, private, charter, higher education or trade schools – there are a wealth of options for those who choose to make Austin their home. Start dates range from August 13th to August 29th so check your individual district’s calendar to make sure you are ready.

 

To help, we’ve included an overview of school districts in Austin and surrounding areas. You will find a brief description of each district, including number of students, number of schools, coverage area, average SAT/ACT scores, student/teacher ratio, and the percentage of students who passed the TAKS test at the exit level, where available. Many districts have their own websites; if available, those are also listed with the district information.

 

NOTE: The following public school district statistics are based on the Texas Education Agency’s (TEA) most recent Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) District Reports (2015-2016 school year). For comprehensive information on each district, contact the district, or the Texas Education Agency at (512) 463-9734, or log on to www.tea.state.tx.us.
