Overall, Allegan High School is a great place to learn. The teachers here are amazing and really care about their students! The best sports here are tennis, wrestling, and soccer. Most of the others don't fare to well in their seasons. The administration is poor, and diversity is extremely low. Recently, the school has taken steps to improve school security.

I had a wonderful school experience at Allegan High School. My professors were caring and encouraged me to do my best every step of the way. I'm still in contact with many of them today! The students are very involved in the community and show their school spirit in every game, in every sport. Here I made friendships that I know will last for a lifetime.
To be honest, this school has a worse reputation than it deserves. Education is not particularly lacking and they seem eager to try running new electives now and then. There are all kinds of people here, and most groups seem to be rather welcoming. One thing that would be nice to change though would be the number of snow days we get. I know this sounds like something every student would wish for, but it seems when nearly every other school in our area has a snow day, Allegan is the only one open. When the weather is scary, it's dangerous for us. Another complaint would be a few of the teachers. I'm not going to go into specifics, but enough requests have been made regarding a few and nothing ever seems to be done about it. However, what's nice is that Allegan has many college visits and programs to encourage students to push to further their education, including the connections to the Tech Center. Also, the performing arts center is super cool.
