My experience at Allentown High School varied throughout my years here. The majority of my teachers during my junior and senior years were terrific- so intelligent and able to bring outside events into the classroom. I think the science and math department lack teachers that care about their students and are able to give them the materials, study help, and support they need to succeed. Phillip Folino, Susan Thompson, Daniel Fallon, Cheryl Chambliss, Michele Zekas...some of the best teachers the school has. I think it depends on how much effort you wish to put into your schoolwork, but these teachers go out of their way to make sure their students are doing well in not only their classes, but their personal lives as well. By taking multiple AP classes in both of my upperclassmen years here, I feel ready to attack college and I feel that most of my teachers have prepared me.
Review Allentown High School
Allentown Bogh School has a wonderful set of staff and teachers who will all help you get through the year and will push you to achieve all of your goals. Our resources are always there during school and after if you need extra help. We have a writing clinic that you can visit at any time of the day to help guide you through your rough drafts and other assignments to check for errors and give you extra tips. We use chromebooks during school when needed, and you can visit the library at amy time during the day for material needed for class. Our guidance counselors are very involved in helping us get through our year and set out steps for us when it's time for college. There is always assistance for us students.
The teachers that I had while attending Allentown High School were great. The teachers that I had during the duration of my stay at Allentown High School were dedicated to their work and went out of their way to help struggling students after classes and outside of school if needed. The Allentown teaching staff used their knowledge to create a variety of teaching styles such as games and technology to keep the student involved in the technology. The grading system at Allentown High School was always on a "points scale." Having a point scale grading system is when the teachers give an exam where instead of receiving a percentage out of one-hundred, the student would receive points. For example, on a math test with twenty questions, a student answers fifteen correct the final score would be fifteen out of twenty. With this said, the overall quality of the teachers at Allentown High School were fantastic, the teachers used interesting styles of teaching, their knowledge learned over the years, expressed interest in students, easy to communicate with, and were consistent while grading.
