As a proud Allen High school alum, I rate my high school experience overall as an 8! I am blessed to attend a school where the city is ranked number one in Texas and gives its students the resources they need to be successful. Some of my best experiences included the student to teacher ratio, the academics, and the activities I could be involved in. I believe the teachers and academics prepared me for the challenges I have encountered in college. Whether its getting work done, building relationships, or goal setting my high school experience empowered me through exposure and real life examples. After attending a large high school, it led me to make the decision to go to a smaller university.
Allen High School is a great school that offers immense opportunities for students. Whether it be sports, fine arts, culinary or medical pursuits, it is apparent that Allen puts and has put a lot of energy into providing world class resources in their institution. There are tons of classes to choose from, a lot of diversity among classmates and staff, various good quality options at the cafeteria, school spirit, a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, flexibility with scheduling, and several great teachers that make academics especially enjoyable. I feel very fortunate to have attended High School and would definitely recommend it!
