Eastside Early College High School

Principal's Message

Miguel Garcia III



Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! We hope everyone is safe and healthy. We are excited to welcome everyone back to another school year of learning and growing.

Personally, I am grateful and elated to continue this journey with you as your principal. Over the past several years, I have had a chance to meet many of you and your children. I look forward to continuing to build strong relationships with each of you.


This fall we are moving to our new campus on 900 Thompson Street.  It is a building our students and community have worked so hard to make a reality and the time has come for us to enjoy the fruits of our labor.  Our new space will allow our students to experience modern learning spaces that will aid in their preparation for college, career, and life.  


I believe that every person at EECHS should always be learning and growing and thus we will continue to innovate our instructional programs to include STEAM(Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math), AVID, and Project Based Learning to provide highly rigorous and engaging instruction preparing our students for the 21st century.


As principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss concerns, suggestions, or ideas to make this the best year yet. I can also be reached via email at Miguel.garcia@austinisd.org



Paws up,
