Allendale High School does well academically and is a safe school, however there are many things that should be changed. The most pressing of which being the lack of tolerance and encouragement for LGBTQ+ students. On a number of occasions, the Allendale community (parents) have explicitly expressed their homophobia and transphobia and have tried their hardest to suppress and shame gay and trans students. This is harmful, for reasons which are obvious, and are in no way helpful in improving this town or it's schools. The administration has not pushed back on this hateful rhetoric as hard as they should, and have even tried to appease this community by discouraging students from discussing the existence of gay people and families. It is for this reason, mostly, that I give Allendale High School 3 stars, as academic performance and big numbers can never make up for archaic ideology and intolerance.

It's a decent school, especially for it's location. It's fairly average all the way around, but it doesn't overly prepare kids for college, especially when it comes to finding scholarships. 99% of the ones they find for you are STEM scholarships, which is annoying when you aren't going into STEM. Half of the teachers are invested in your future, the other half seem like they're annoyed most of the time. Extremely low on the diversity scale, and poor treatment of LGBTQ+ students. Some of the athletics offered are football, wrestling, soccer, cross country, track, and golf. You won't find sports such as lacrosse, rugby, or swimming. There are clubs you can join, and the Science Olympiad team usually does well at competitions. Sometimes it feels like the school caters more to the parents than it does to the students, which can be good or bad depending on your view. Cafeteria food is mediocre, but the campus is safe, which might be due to the fact it's more rural than city.
Excellent, diverse, and close knit community. With a well-developed sports program and excellent teachers to fuel their academic achievements. Allendale is a great school! It is always a great day to be a FALCON!
