Austin Rising has been a blessing and pivotal point in our child’s education. The way that the lessons are structured has helped them learn more in depth and really understand the material and get excited about it. The community and “family feel” is fantastic at ARS, so my children have always felt comfortable attending and open to learning and growing. We value the smaller class size (it translates into more concentrated attention and knowledge) and love the teachers passion and spunk for teaching them. We owe gratitude to them for such a wonderful, safe learning environment.

Austin Rising High has been such a gift to our family. It's not just a school, but also a supportive and nurturing community. My daughter Akyra learned many exciting things over the past school year. The hands-on, project and activity based format fully engaged her.

My daughter has been attending Austin Rising for the past 8 years and it truly is an amazing school. The teachers are top notch and the way they teach is so creative and engaging. The project based learning, ending each unit with a project presentation of their acquired knowledge of the topic, is a  fantastic way to engage students fully in the learning experience. We love ARS!
