Austin Middle School Ratings & Reviews

May 11, 2016 Submitted by a parent
We moved from a Midwestern state to Galveston this past year, so my child has spent nearly one full year at Austin. I have consistently been impressed with the opportunities provided by the teachers for field trips, volunteer activities, and outside learning experiences for the children. My child seamlessly integrated into a peer group and has had a wonderful time at this school. The teachers are bright and energetic, with a lot of good ideas. One teacher in particular has been a favorite for my child and makes a usually dull subject seem exciting. For those who said the children don't have recess, this is true, but if the child signs up for athletics they will have an athletics period and get some physical activity most days.

This school is disappointing. I expected the kids to be inspired, avid learners, and for the educational environment and the teachers to enrich their experience and instill a love of learning through discovery. This is not the case. They don't seem to be very discriminating about who they allow into this "magnet program"There's no recess, hardly any time for electives or PEIf you send your child here, be prepared to do homework with them for up to four hours a night. The scheduling is hectic, only 45 minutes to an hour in each subject each day, and hours of homework every night because they don't have time to finish their work in class, so it becomes homework! They expect too much of the younger grades (5 & 6) who are just exhausted from all the demands of being expected to act like little adults "being prepared for careers in science and technology." My child is completely burned out on this now - my child used to love school & science, now doesn't want to go.I'm very unimpressed with the entire Galveston district - this is supposed to be the best middle school on the island, but it's nothing special. Creativity and independence are NOT rewarded here. Too regimented for free-spirited kids. More time is spent on standardized testing than anything else (benchmark assessments done EVERY 6 weeks, takes a week out of every term).

This is a wonderful school. I am very pleased with the way the teachers teach and interact with the students in class and if they fall behind or do not get it then on their one on one time.

Austin Middle School is wonderful. It has quality teachers and great academics. Every student is cared about, no matter, his or her race, intelligence, or background. This school makes the best of what it has, and is a fantastic learning environment.
