Austin, Indiana, is a small city with a population of around 4,800. Family, religion, and lifelong friends are a priority with the Austin community. Austin Schools genuinely reflect the spirit of the community. We vigorously cling to conservative, traditional values, yet the technology of the twenty-first century is bringing many new and exciting opportunities to Austin Schools. We look forward to the challenge of educating our students, so that they can meet the standards that will enable them to be successful in any career path they choose to pursue.
