See the 2014-2015 Akins HS Report Card

On this link, you will find the State of Texas 2014–15 School Report Card for Akins High School. This is a report required by the Texas Legislature and prepared by the Texas Education Agency. It is to be sent to the parent or guardian of every child enrolled in a Texas public school. The report provides information concerning student performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR), as well as information on student enrollment, class size averages, and financial expenditures.

40 Trees planted on the Akins grounds

The City of Austin gave Akins High School 40 trees. The JROTC had a great time assisting with the planning of the trees, along with the "TreeFolks", City of Austin, community volunteers, and Fulbright Scholars from Denmark, Ukraine, Russia, Colombia, Ghana, Germany, Turkey, India, Iraq, USA and others. (Fulbright Scholars are in the blue shirts in the attached photo.). This was a great opportunity!
