11 Luxury Homes in Prestigious Eanes ISD
There are numerous aspects that go into purchasing a home – appearance, floor plan and layout, or even proximity to downtown. For many though, the school district plays a major role in the home search and is sometimes even the deciding factor for families.
The Eanes ISD has become known as an elite district and is, in fact, one of Texas’ most sought-after school districts. The District, which consists of six elementary schools, two middle and one high school, consistently exceeds state and national averages on the SAT and ACT, and even achieved the highest rating, “Met Standard” by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) for the 2016 – 2017 school year.
With a commitment to provide exceptional teaching and prepare students for life-long success, the average teacher in the district has 13 years of experience with 42.3% holding advanced degrees.
As a 1:1 mobile device district, students from kinder through 12th grade can enjoy the benefits of having technology in their hands and learning how to use it responsibly. The iPads create an engaging and interactive atmosphere where gifted students can be challenged to a higher level of thinking and at-risk students can personalize their instruction through the apps to improve learning.
Other opportunities for Eanes students include robotics, Destination Imagination, gifted and talented, athletics, fine arts, dance, Spanish immersion and so much more. High schoolers can even choose to participate in the Incubator program, health occupations classes and computer sciences. Social-emotional learning and global citizenship are also key components for all grade levels.
Spanning 31.2 square miles, the Eanes Independent School district covers a lot of ground. These homes offered by Austin Portfolio Real Estate agents are located within the District’s boundaries.
