Akins High School received $10,000 from local McDonald’s owners.
The school took part in the franchise’s “lovin’ school spirit” hashtag contest during the fall and came out on top. All McDonald’s operators in the Austin-area are locally owned, which is why they decided to give back to the community where they live and work.
AUSTIN (KXAN) — Monday through Friday, five students make their way into Room 334 at Akins High School. They are greeted by their teacher Mr. Jeff Schafer and two aides.

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

Students who owe money to the school for library fees and other obligations can now pay them online. Read more to learn the process.
