John B Connally High School3

Austin, TX | Travis County

This school is horrible, I'm currently a senior, and I transferred here in the beginning of the school year. If you're thinking about transferring your kid here, don't do it. Every administrator I've met so far and talked to are very rude and disrespectful. I understand that a lot of the kids here are pretty "bad" very mean and crude or whatever else. These administrators has probably been through a lot dealing with a exceptional amount of delinquents but it's gotten to the point where they don't have respect for any student because of it. They shouldn't be so biased about their students, because I'm a respectful person and I honestly understand why these kids are rude to them. They don't try to listen or understand at all.

Both of my children are currently attending Connally and our family could not be happier! Diversity, opportunity, enthusiasm - all of these things are part their quality education. Debate, sports, languages, music (band/orchestra/choir), culinary, theater arts, etc - most have active parent groups with an active PTA on top of that. Connally has been first in the district to implement many new programs successfully and continues to be forward thinking. Great school!

Fantastic school. Graduated in 2009. Connally is such a diverse school with people from all over the world. The teachers and principals are great. It has one of the best high school newspapers in the nation along with other activities

I am so pleased to have a student at Connally. The teachers are caring and responsive. The extracurricular activities are great (terrific orchestra program and the theatre department is AWESOME). The AP classes have prepared my child well for college. What I love most is the diversity at Connally. Such a wonderful mix ethnically, socioeconomically, racially and religiously. Glad to have my student at a school that reflects the real world.

Connally is a great school. I have a freshman there this year. The teachers keep informed and are quick to respond to emails. The online grade book is very helpful to keep track of my kids grades and assignments. The orchestra program is awesome! Also, I like how the freshman core classes are in 2 hallways along with their lockers. I believe it makes it a better transition going into the high school environment. The administrators are great. The teachers really care about their students. If a student is disrupting the class, they will send them out of the classroom, so the rest of the class is not missing out on the learning.

This school is great, academics are high and athletics are high, there are numerous possibilites out of Connally. Especially if your student is looking to go D1 in college sports, or any division at that, athletics are elite

I have two kids that have attented chs and has graduted. I think that chs is a good school just needs to get better staff in the office. So that when you call you don't get all the attidue that they want to give you. Also have two other kids that will go there and one will finish 2009-2010

I think Mr. Garcia is the best thing that happened to this school. The fine arts department is the best. The JB Connally band placed second in state in 2007-2008. All schools have their issues but parent involvement is key to any school.

I'm a parent of a former student at Connally. My daughter went there from 2002-2006. During those years, we watched the school slide from being a pretty good school to what it probably is today...a not so great school. I think the demographics have dramatically changed in the area, which is one of the reasons we chose to move. I'm glad to hear that Mr. Garcia is taking some steps to improve the school; however, there is only so much a principal can do. He can't keep out the many low-performing and ill-mannered kids that walk through the school doors.

Fortunately now, under the new principal Mr. Garcia, Connally is taking right steps to get back to its former status as one of the best in Austin area, but it still needs a lot work.

I was a student at Connally when the school opened and I graduated 2000. The school was under superb leadership by Mike Tannehill. The teachers were happy, the students felt safe. Times have changed at this school. I have been back for educational purposes, wanting to learn from the best school in town. However, Connally is quite different these days. It would be in the school boards interests to seek a solution to the problem that Connally is beginning to face. The future of Connally High needs to be taken into consideration at this point.

I was a student between the years of 1999 and 2002 and I thought all the teachers where great and the Assit Principlas where great too. I had some problems with some students but they where small one not big ones and they teachers know how to teach and deal with stuff without having any problems
