Lake Travis High also won the Texas football championship in division 4A an unprecedented five years in a row from 2007 to 2011. That record-breaking streak was chronicled in a video, The Quest for Greatness, The Lake Travis Story, a portion of which can be seen on YouTube.

The voters of LTISD have proven their commitment to maintaining these high standards. In 2011, they passed a bond referendum that will enhance our existing schools, combine Lake Travis Middle and High School facilities into an expanded High School campus, and create a new middle school on Bee Creek Road, across Hwy 71 from Sweetwater. The new middle school is under construction and scheduled to be ready for the 2014 school year. See plans here.
