Austin Independent School District
The Austin Independent School District (AISD) is the fifth largest school district in Texas, and serves approximately 86,100 students at 124 schools. We are a diverse, urban district that is making great progress in student academic achievement. A study commissioned by the Austin Chamber of Commerce concluded “Austin’s public schools are comparable, if not superior to, the benchmarked cities of Denver, Phoenix, Raleigh-Durham and Seattle.” Unlike many urban school districts in the U.S. today, AISD has a richly, diverse student community. It includes children from all economic levels and all kinds of backgrounds. Also unlike many other urban school districts, AISD enjoys widespread community support. We also support families that represent more than 94 languages, and we teach seven languages other than English in our schools, including Chinese, Japanese, and American Sign Language.

The District serves elementary students in three PreK-2 campuses, three 3-5 campuses, and three K-5 campuses. Secondary students attend one of three middle schools and a ninth-grade campus before attending the district’s high school.
