I love Allendale High School! I was a student there for four years, with my graduation a week from today. There is nothing that needs to be changed there, at least in my opinion. I had a wonderful experience at this high school, and all of the resources and teachers here are amazing! The teachers actually care about their students, and they want to see them succeed. Nobody gets left behind in the dust, every student there is friendly and helpful

The experience I have has at Allendale High School has been very good. All the teachers are very willing to spend time helping their students improve. In times of tragedy, everyone pulls together and we get things done. For example, when a student was diagnosed with cancer, everyone started to organize fundraisers for the family. T-shirts were quickly made and sold out, and our band helped spread the fundraiser to other schools in the area. One of the things that I would like to change at Allendale High School would be the school lunches. To be honest, they do not taste good. Also, every day there are always the same choices to pick from, there is no variety except for the main meal that changes every day. To add on, there are not enough 'sides'. There is always a vegetable and a couple of fruit options, but none of them are filling. Several students have commented on the fact that if they want enough food to fill them, they have to pay extra to get more.
Allendale High School does a phenomenal job of education their students while still encouraging them and providing ways to continue to be involved with the arts, sports, or work internships. Students of Allendale graduate as well-rounded individuals ready to take on whatever next step they design their path towards. The overall environment is one of comradarey. There are no outstanding bullying issues, as everyone in the student body does fairly well to get along. The academics, sports, and arts programs are all top-notch and excede those of many surrounding districts. The staff is always encouraging and enthusiastic about our futures.
