Everyone, regardless of socioeconomic circumstances or background, deserves choice and opportunity.

At KIPP Texas – Austin Obras, we believe that the power to forge one’s desired path in life begins with a relevant values-driven education that cultivates critical thinking, ownership of knowledge, and independence.

By strengthening our student’s academic skills, intellectual habits, and character traits through daily social emotional learning, higher order thinking tasks, and access to technology, we will prepare students to thrive in and graduate from four-year colleges and universities while creating a sustainable career for teachers. With families and members of the Austin community, we will forge a sense of team and family to create a school community that is stronger in unity than the sum of its parts.

Camille Avila

School Leader

"Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it." Marian Wright Edelman.

Mrs. Avila is driven by the goal of providing every child the space to find their unique paths to freedom, by empowering their brilliance in the classroom.

In 2015, she moved from NYC to join the KIPP Austin Obras team as a Special Education Coordinator, then Assistant Principal of Instruction. She has worked hard to establish the inclusion program and provide equitable access to rigorous, student-centered learning for all. She graduated from the College of Mount Saint Vincent with a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Psychology, then joined the NYC Teaching Fellows in 2012, earning her master’s degree in Bilingual Special Education. On the weekends you’ll likely find Mrs. Avila cheering on her daughter Kalliope at softball or dancing with her husband Jeffrey. She is humbled by the opportunity to lead and serve such an amazing community of Hummingbirds.
