There are very high standards here! I love the fact that my A student is continually challenged. She has really had to work for her accomplishments. The students have the opportunity to attend labs, get help from honor students, get individual teacher assistance. The athletics program is also very strong with focus on teamwork and player development, not just on winning.

Allentown High School is an amazing school that granted me stellar educational opportunities and has provided me with memories and friends that will last a lifetime. The teachers at Allentown are active and care about their students' lives. Not only that, but the overall environment of Allentown is very positive. The school has allowed me to make friends that I know will be there for me for my entire life. The only thing I would change about Allentown is the course selection. Sometimes students do not have the opportunities to take classes they want because there is simply not enough room in their schedule. Allentown has such an amazing variety of courses, but sometimes students just can't fit all the courses they want to take in their schedule. Allentown High School has molded me into the person I am today. Leaving it behind to attend college will be difficult, but I am excited for what the future holds and the new experiences I will have in the next chapter of my life.
Allentown High School has prepared me for college in many ways. The different courses it offers really cater to the specific needs and wants of its students pursuing careers in all different fields from culinary to biology. The relationships the students have with students at Allentown are really what make it so unique and special. It is so apparent that the teachers care about the success of students and love watching them grow. They act as a mentor and as a senior in high school I can say that I feel safe, comfortable, and wanted standing next to the amazing staff at Allentown
