Travis Heights Elementary School is a community built on collaboration—among students, teachers, families and partners—that celebrates individuality and diversity. Working together, Thunderbirds create an exciting educational environment for all students to learn, serve and lead.
As an in-district charter school, Travis Heights stands at the forefront of an innovative new approach to public education. The community-based charter school offers more flexibility and autonomy than traditional campus models. This allows the Thunderbirds to design and tailor programs based on students’ specific needs and families’ top priorities.
The school, which was established in 1939, is nestled among the homes of the historic Travis Heights neighborhood adjacent to Big Stacy Park. The location gives teachers ample opportunities to use nature as a classroom and to bring students outdoors for recreation, physical education and special events.
Travis Heights offers a world of educational opportunities inspired by its community—including Pre-K, dual language and service learning programs, as well as innovative digital strategies—to make lessons come alive for students as they prepare for college, career and life.
By learning subjects in both English and Spanish through the dual language program, T-birds are becoming bilingual, biliterate and bicultural. By connecting their classroom to the community through service learning projects, students are gaining real-world skills to address real-world issues.
Recognizing that many of today’s children are digital natives, Travis Heights uses blended learning to integrate technology into the curriculum across the campus. Teachers also create opportunities for students to extend their learning to the online environment—at home and at their own pace.
Travis Heights is committed to investing in the whole child to ensure students reach their fullest potential. The tightly knit community nurtures children’s imaginative minds and abilities through the district’s creative learning initiative and rich fine arts programs, including music and art.
Travis Heights is part of the Travis Early College High School family of schools. As an early college high school, Travis offers students the opportunity to earn college credit and graduate with a diploma in one hand and an associate degree from Austin Community College in the other, for free.
