Mary B. Austin has been recognized as a school of innovation.  We are focusing on incorporating the 4Cs (Communication, Collaboration, Creativity and Critical Thinking) into our curriculum to prepare our students with the skills necessary to be successful today and in the future.  We have two innovative labs here at Austin- an emerging technologies lab, where students learn programming and coding skills and 3D design and printing- and a communication lab, where students learn to create digital communication products that enhance their learning. All students have access to  Microsoft OneDrive cloud storage and can access Microsoft Office products at school and at home.  Students are learning to create digital portfolios when visiting the computer lab.  In addition, Austin is taking part in a digital literacy project led by our media specialist. 

The projects and activities listed above are in addition to the outstanding learning taking place daily within regular classrooms.  Mary B. Austin students are exposed to a variety of learning experiences for a well-rounded education.  In addition to core academics, emerging technologies and 21st century skills, Austin students are also engaged in weekly elective opportunities, as well as art and music instruction.  We strive to provide the very best education at Mary B. Austin Elementary in a safe and loving environment with high expectations for all.
