Eventually, we all end up in high school. No-one can change that, but what we can change is what path we take on the way in. School – even though at times it doesn’t feel that way – is a journey of choices. So I am here to inform you of all those choices on the way to adulthood.

Programs:

Currently, in Round Rock ISD, there are 25 program choices, and you can start as many as you want – though you should aim to finish twoThere is Advanced Placement (AP), Athletics, The Avid Program, The Early College start (ACC), Electives, Off Block, Study Hall, Student Council, PROS, Teen Leadership, International Baccalaureate Program, Special Education and last but not least Credit Recovery. I did not list them all, but I assure you there are many many more.

There are five academies in RRISD. The Academy of Business & Industry, The Academy of Health Science, The Academy of Public Service, The Academy of Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics, and The Academy of Visual & Performing Arts.
