Pickle Elementary School and the St. John Community Center offer education and community services to Northeast Austin neighborhoods. The unique joint venture between AISD and the City of Austin creates a shared space that houses the school, as well as a community clinic and public library.
Pickle—named for U.S. Rep. James Jarrell Pickle—fosters a culture of cooperation, which promotes children’s intellectual, social, emotional and physical development.
Experienced educators create a challenging and nurturing environment for all students to develop their talents and skills as they prepare for college, career and life.
In addition to offering core subjects such as math, English language arts and social studies, Pickle is proud to provide Pre-K, dual language and after-school programs. The tightly knit school community offers a world of educational opportunities—from arts and athletics to reading and robotics—to ensure all children reach their fullest potential.
Pickle is part of the Reagan family of schools. As an early college high school, Reagan offers students the opportunity to earn college credit and graduate with a diploma in one hand and an associate’s degree from Austin Community College in the other.
