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 324 students in grades Pre-K to Fifth Grade. This small population is what makes our school a warm and supportive learning environment. 63% of our students come from low income families and 59% are native Spanish speakers who are learning English as a second language. Some of the other foreign languages spoken by Reilly families are Burmese, Arabic, K'iche and Farsi. 

The academic support programs offered at Reilly include a dual language bilingual Spanish program, a Dual Language Mandarin 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.
