Toward my senior year we got all new faculty members which affected all of the students tremendously. That would have been the major thing I would've changed (the unorganization).

Sometimes we do face challenges, but it is nothing more than the typical high school. I have been going to Allen Academy since I was in Kindergarten and very rarely have I seen bullying or peer pressure going on. In the mission statement, it says that it is a community but I look at Allen as more than that. It is more like a family. There is love and support all around and I have had nothing but great experiences there. I will be graduating from Allen in the Spring of 2014 and I can honestly say that I will hate to leave because it will be like I am leaving home.
Having good friends makes it slightly better but the kids are ignorant and rude. The building in infested with all kinds of bugs and mice.
