Margaret T. Reilly Elementary

Our School

Reilly Elementary is located on the corner of Guadalupe Street and Denson Street, just north of the University of Texas, a few blocks from the Austin Community College Highland Mall campus and directly across the street from the Texas Department of Public Safety headquarters.

Our student population is 266 students in grades Pre-K to Fifth Grade. This small population is what makes our school a warm and supportive learning environment. 91% of our students come from low income families and 71% are native Spanish speakers who are learning English as a second language. The other foreign languages spoken by Reilly families are Burmese, Arabic and Farsi. In addition, the Austin Regional Day School Program for the Deaf has their total communication classrooms serving grades K - 5 at Reilly Elementary.

The academic support programs offered at Reilly include a one-way dual language bilingual program, Social Emotional Learning, Creative Learning Initiative and Austin Partners in Education Classroom Coaching program. Our proximity to the Texas Department of Public Safety has blessed us with a highly successful mentoring program.

In the 2013-2014 school year, Reilly was one of only six AISD elementary schools awarded six out of six possible academic distinctions by the Texas Education Agency.

Our school mascot is The Mustang and our school colors are blue and white.
