  • Welcome to Stephen F. Austin Elementary School!

    It is our 60th anniversary!  Since 1963, Austin Elementary has been providing students with an exceptional, well-rounded educational experience designed to promote independent and critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and problem-solving skills.  
    At Austin Elementary, we are committed to educating the WHOLE Child! We are committed to ensuring your child is learning and progressing in all academic areas. We are also dedicated to ensuring that your child is flourishing socially and emotionally in an engaging, learning environment. We want every child to feel safe, loved, and valued as they walk the halls of our building.

    At Austin, we see our families as educational partners and we are looking forward to working with you this school year. The collaborative nature of our school staff and their focus on keeping students first is an integral component of how the Lion Pride Way is demonstrated at Austin Elementary.
    We are looking forward to a positive and productive school year!

    Putting Kids First,
    Kara Mathes, Principal
