Austin Achieve is a tuition-free, open enrollment public charter school preparing East Austin youth to attend and excel at top universities. We are building the next generation of community leaders by closing the opportunity gap for our students and their families. We currently serve approximately 825 students in 6-11th grades. Our scholars are 88% Latino, 8% African-American; and 4% Caucasian. Based on family income, over 90% of Austin Achieve scholars qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch, a food assistance program with eligibility determined by proximity to the poverty line.
An intern for AAPS you will get to become a part of an innovative team that is committed to next-level education for students who need it most. As a new school, our programs are always evolving so you will work alongside a teacher that generates her/his own curriculum and have access to the newest technological tools and systems (Google Classroom, a variety of learning apps, and a brand new, fully equipped new school building). We are looking for an intern that is excited about new trends in education and willing to experiment.
