Allendale High School is a great school located in a small community. While in school, I feel very safe and unharmed by anyone or anything. There are so many classes offered that work to prepare any student for college, ranging from leadership to a multitude of AP classes. The teachers and staff always seem to care and interact with the students. While I was attending, I never felt like I was not cared about. I do have to say that Allendale High School has a top of the line fine arts program that any student with musical talents must join. However, Allendale High school does lack diversity, but is slowly getting more diverse. There are also not a lot of variety for students to become involved in clubs & activities while in school. Other than that, Allendale High School was a great experience for me and is headed in the right direction!

Allendale High School is a great place! We have great teachers and awesome opportunities at education and sports! We our very involved with our sports, and that is what I love most. Our school has such spirit for the Falcons! Some of our administration is viewed as "not fair" and I believe that too. I feel like our school needs more college readiness than what we are getting. Some of our teachers take things out on us, and set us up to fail which is not okay. Overall, Allendale is a great school and I've loved it there and met many people over the years. I have succeed incredibly here, and was given many great educational opportunities to further my education.
I did not have a good experience at this school at all. The biggest flaw with this particular school in this district is the principal. He portrays himself much more different than who he is which slowly but surely starts showing as you begin observing his actions and words. He contributed to making my high school experience disappointing. As for other teachers, they were good.
It's unfair for me to say that a specific teacher was not a good teacher because it really depends on the student's learning style. I met some great teachers though that helped make my experience there better.
Sports and music are the two biggest focuses. The music program is fantastic for band and choir.

There is such, such small amount of diversity. If you are not like everyone else -- high middle class, Christian, white-- you will most likely have a rough time. There isn't obvious bullying occurring because of this. It's more of a subtle exclusion.
