My experience at Allegany was mostly average. Despite the literally crumbling facility, most teachers have been very helpful in guiding me through my high school career, especially within the last year. I had the most growth my junior year because of the challenging AP and Honors classes I partipated in, as well as new sports and clubs such as tennis and NHS. The public schools in my hometown are beginning to learn to diversify our learning environment for the better and find the best ways to let students grow.
I was so happy to be apart of Allegany Highschool and I am very proud to be apart of the adventure and history. Allegany gives its students room to grow and the ability to strive for success. Unlike other schools Allegany focuses on the art programs and sports equally allowing both types of students to succeed. The rivalry between Fort Hill and Allegany is also an amazing thing to be apart of. Homecoming week is not taken lightly and neither is the game. The stadiums are filled with students, parents, and alumni. We keep traditions including the senior march around the school during homecoming week, seniors spray painting the road the night before graduation to leave their mark, and other activities that make Allegany so amazing.
