About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Austin Can Academy Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Austin Can Academy Charter School Reviews
I Think This School Is A Good School. Most People Think Oh Its A "Ghetto" School, Or A School That Isn't Helpful. The Teachers Help You Alot! As A Student I Get More And Better Help Rather Than My Old School. (AHS). Its A Second Chance School, And I'm Glad I Choose To Go Here.
Well I am currently a student at Austin Can Academy. It is a good school that gives kids a second chance to change their lives. The great teachers they have make it a lot easier for us to wake up and go to the classes and the awesome principal as well. I was a dropout from my other school. They told me about Austin Can and I went and tried it out and within a year I was ready to graduate. I really thank Austin Can for helping me. I would have never done it with out them. Thank you.
I'm a student at Austin Can Academy and it's very easy and for the teens that have kids. You will get faster and moved on into life with more open options. I am 15 years old, and I'm a 9th grader here at Austin Can. Most students come here because they have kids, and they can't get into other schools, because of bad behavior and kids of the students and drugs and bad influences, and the rules are strict and tight, and that's what makes the school good.
The passion for student success is electric and contagious! Austin Can is the best example of what a charter school should be and sets the bar for all the others. Si se puede!
Austin Can Academy is a very good charter school that is offering youth a second chance to change their lives.
