    "Akins has really come along way from it orgins. Akins was initially a school where badly behaved kids were sent and now it is a recognized campus. The school has been said to have one of the best campuses and best teachers. Akins High School has also gotten a lot of media attention because of the way the school is set up by academies so that students are able to focus on a career that they are interested just as of they were in college.Akins High School is also known for having the best science,math,engineering,medical, law, and business programs(those just being about 20% of the programs offerd) in Austin. No other high school could come close to providing the education that this school can. When you send yor child to school here it is almost as of you are sending your child to a prestigious High School. It basically seems as of your sending your child to law school or to medical school because the studens who go to Akins get the experience and special cources as of they were."

    "Teachers really do alot for students and I was able to get my certificate from my academy major but the principle and the leadership are not nice to the teachers. Sometimes they are rude even in front of the students to the teacher. Every year my teachers find other jobs because they do not like to be treated like that."

    "Akins has made tremendous strides from a few years ago. The academy structure has provided my children many opportunities! My kids have selected majors and have participated in internships. It is a recognize campus just like Bowie, Anderson, and Austin High. The teachers are the best I have seen."

    "Great school. I had heard that it was a fairly new school and had some problems, but from what I have seen it is top notch. Staff really seems to care and the students seem to be involved as well. Nothing but praise for this school & I only see it getting better."

    "I was hesitant to enroll my son at Akins after reading some of the past reviews. So far so good. This year has been great. We love the school spirit and the teachers have been wonderful."
