Austin Green School is in the beginning stages of development and planning. We hope to open our doors by fall 2013. Our school will be kinder through high school with the possibility of an early childhood center. If you are interested in helping us in any way please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the mean time please enjoy our blog as we make public our efforts and experiences. We know the road ahead will be filled with many challenges but we are determined to give the community of Austin the gift of a progressive educational community. Wish us luck!
