By the late 1930s, space issues at Austin High were getting more serious.  To allow more room, the city vacated 13th Street, and the Austin High block expanded up to the old alley in Block 153.

In 1953, with the appearance of other high schools, Austin High School was renamed Stephen F. Austin High School.
