My experience at Allen High School was very similar to a first time student in college. The school is very large, which allows for a large population of students along with a wide variety of clubs and organizations to be involved in. The school consists of a diversity of students and faculty members that are friendly and accepting of one another. The school is broken down based on last name, creating a more pleasurable experience for a student when they are attempting to meet with a counselor/academic adviser. Allen High School offers many amazing sports programs, along with the opportunity to use your academic/athletic ability to your advantage!

Life at Allen High School is vibrant to say the least! Teachers are always going out of their way to help struggling students while administration takes an interest in seeing students perform at their best. Based on this balanced system, Allen High School will continue to grow in an upward trajectory!
Although Allen High School goes to such extents, I would like to point out some improvements that could be made. Since construction has started, students seem to have trouble with the traffic flow in the hallways. From a photo stand point, it looks like a bunch of sardines making their way throughout the halls. I hope that when construction is finished this problem will dissipate.
Allen High School has an effect on every student that attends, but personally my experience so far has been a great one!
Allen High School is a pretty great place! It's huge for a high school (my graduating class was about 1550), so it's really difficult to get into and stay in the top 10% (if class rank is important to you). The class size is still good, though, and the size of the school allows for students to pursue interest in just about anything. It even had a men's volleyball team and rugby team when I went. Overall, it's a great school, and the most distinguishing factors of the school are its size and, of course, the football team/stadium.
