What You’ll Love

Teacher autonomy and creativity. Our teachers have a great deal of flexibility in deciding how to best engage and meet the needs of students. With support and resources available, teachers can craft their own lessons, design projects, and help choose curriculum.
Better work-life balance. With no school on Fridays and two extra weeks of break, our teachers have time to plan, give meaningful feedback and re-energize. (In fact, AHB Community School was the first part-time school to be accredited by TAAPS.)
A place of respect. At AHB we promote open communication and value teachers’ voices. We even have two teacher voting spots on the board! Teachers, administrators and parents work together to create a supportive environment where everyone thrives. 
Supportive parents. Our parents are excited to be part of their child’s education! Parents are responsive to teacher feedback, provide classroom support and show our teachers lots of love, too. 
Happy Students. It’s common to see students run into school each morning or hear them complain that a school break was too long! Our students enjoy their days with us and come in eager to learn.
Small class sizes. As one of only a handful of progressive Austin micro-schools, AHB is small. We limit our K-8 program to 90, with student teacher ratio of 10:1. Teachers develop close relationships with students and are better able to meet the needs of the whole child.
Keep Learning. At AHB, our curriculum is dynamic and utilizes project based learning. Classes tackle new themes each quarter, delving deep into science and social studies topics. Whether exploring oceans or world religions, teachers model curiosity and awe as they learn alongside students.
