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!

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!
I feel privileged to be going to a school like this. From the connections I have made with my favorite teachers, to the various opportunities I have had to succeed as this high school. They offer programs such as CNA, Pharmacy technician, student council workshops and so much more! The resources, staff, and opportunities allow for a well developed education.
