Austin Neighborhoods: The Arboretum

It’s been over three years since we wrote about the Arboretum neighborhood of Austin and a lot has changed.  Let’s take a look at what makes this area located in Northwest Austin at the intersection of U.S. 183 and Capital of Texas Highway/Loop 360 one of the best neighborhoods in Austin.  

Children who live in the Arboretum go to either Round Rock or Austin ISD schools.  Those zoned to AISD go to Hill Elementary for Pre-K through fifth grade, Murchison Middle School for sixth through eighth grade, and Anderson High School for ninth through twelfth grade.  

Students who go to Round Rock ISD schools go to Laurel Mountain Elementary for Kindergarten through fifth grade, Canyon Vista Middle School for sixth through eighth grade, and Westwood High School for ninth through twelfth grade.
