News & Announcements

Akins Eagles Sideline Store

Let's have Eagle Pride! Visit our Akins Eagle Sideline Store to get clothing with the new Akins logo. (Click on the above link.)

Akins updates brand and logo

We have numerous logo marks/mascot images around campus. Part of building school pride is having a common, recognizable logo for all to see and use. For that reason, various stakeholders have been working throughout the summer to update our Akins HS brand/logo. We are happy to announce that it was finalized on August 25th.

This is exciting stuff!

Go, Eagles!

First real bank at Akins High School

On May 23rd, the Austin ISD school board approved A+ Credit Union to build a bank at Akins High School, which will be the first Austin high school with a real bank. This is great opportunity for Akins HS students to learn about financial literacy. The new bank will fit right in with the majors in the ABLE (business) Academy.

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!

Akins PTSA Holiday Potluck

The Akins PTSA hosted a holiday potluck meal on Dec. 8 at 6:30 p.m. in the library. Even Santa made a quick stop to take pictures.

Great Saturday for the Akins choir program!!!

On Saturday, Oct. 17th, the choir program had 8 students audition for All State today, and 3 of them made Region Choir.

One of our students was successful enough to continue on to audition at the next level (Pre-Area)!!!

This has been a great year for the program with Ms. Catherine Ballard as the Choir Director. Kudos!
