I, myself, like being the last graduating class of Allen Central. I love the atmosphere that the faculty and staff put out for us students. They make the help they give to us genuine and make their job seem more like a career rather than a job. The students at Allen Central are great as well. The student body is even like a family; when one is going through a rough patch, everybody is there to help them get back on their feet. The school as a whole is like a family and you don't get that often with both the faculty and the students. It's a great small-town high school. I wouldn't want to be anything else but an Allen Central Rebel.
Review Allen Central High School
Allen Central High School is an aged school with the basic commodities. Thankfully, the school is being replaced with a new school next year, and combining other local, aged schools along with it. The teachers were genuine and helpful, but the lack of budget and new equipment led to a disappointing class participation and activities list. The school doesn't offer too many classes and the ones it does are basic and lackluster at best.
Well after going to Allen Central for roughly 4 years I can state that the education here is lacking a tad bit but the teachers are probably the sweetest group of people around. Sadly the same can't be said about the students, whom are the meanest group of kids around. The best parts about Allen Central is probably how all the teachers will go through each individual problem until you fully understand it.
