Austin’s ongoing and steady growth has an impact on education, with
public school districts that boast strong reputations for both academic
and extracurricular programs, and whose students consistently score high
on state-mandated assessment tests and college entrance exams.
The area’s overall growth has also meant that many school districts have
rapidly expanded to accommodate larger enrollments. For example, Travis
and Williamson counties alone have 10 major public school districts, and
there are many other smaller districts throughout Central Texas. The largest
independent school districts (ISDs) in Central Texas are: Austin, Del Valle,
Eanes, Leander, Pflugerville and Round Rock.
