I attended this school district from K-12 and have had no bad experiences! The teachers have always gone above and behind to help the student in whatever they needed. The student population is quite diverse allowing for a well balanced community. The most impressive thing is the development of opportunities that were created at the high school. They have culinary, marketing, business, and healthcare options that even allow for shadowing of people who are currently in those professions. Another thing I admired about the high school teachers is that what they taught some have worked previously in that field.

I liked how they were able to plan things. Allen High School serves most of the city of Allen. Until fall 2006, when Lovejoy High School opened, Allen High School served high school students in the Lovejoy Independent School District, which includes the city of Lucas, most of Fairview, and a small portion of Plano.The first Allen High School, built in 1910 at the corner of Belmont and Cedar, was a two-story brick building housing six classrooms and an auditorium, and saw the first graduating class of eight students in 1914.

The second Allen High School was established in 1959 on land donated by Mr. Harris Brown on the corner of Jupiter and Main Streets.[4]

August 1999 saw the opening of Allen High School “2000”, a new facility (at the corner of Greenville and Rivercrest) which opened to 2,200 students in grades 10 through 12. The former high school was converted into the Becky Lowery Freshman Center, named in honor of a former middle school teacher and school counselor.
One of my favorite things about the Allen Independent School District is that the students are offered a multitude of opportunities for any pathway he or she chooses to follow educationally. There are multiple levels offered for almost every course, an elaborate facility for elective classes such as fine arts, culinary, and theater! This helps students develop a better understanding of what life in different areas of study would look like, and I love that!
