My experience with Allegany Public Schools is there a lot of activities to do there, but I feel some groups or activities are being left out. They are mostly concerned about sports than academics or other groups/activities. They need to start thinking about mental health and the importance of it instead of sports. I did get a good education and I have always had good teachers. One thing I can say is how good my high school is taking care of the mental health, and making sure everyone is welcome. That is what we need in a schools, and we should in courage students who feel defeated. I hope this school district will fix these problems throughout the county, and be able to grow as a community.

I grew up in Allegany Public Schools. I’ve had wonderful experiences through my journey. I’ve made great relationships along the way and have no complaints!
Allegany county public schools has a wide variety of paths to take throughout educational career. Beginning in elementary school, students are incorporated into high level classes that prepare them for middle school. middle school then gives students a little bit of freedom to choose some of their classes which gives them a feel of high school. In high school , student are given opportunities to play different sports, take different classes, be part of different clubs, etc. All of these things prepare the student for college while also providing access to resources if they need help.
