The opening of Travis relieved Austin High School and George Bush High School,[4] with grades 9 and 10 immediately zoned to Travis,[5] and grades 11 to 12 continuing to go to Austin with a phaseout of one grade per year.[6] The Travis Theatrical Company won UIL OAP State Championship in 2013, featuring Jon Rivenburg, Carissa Cardy, Shea Peterson, and others.
