I moved to the Allen Independent School District in sixth grade and went to Lois Lindsey Elementary School. I really liked how the elementary schools go from kindergarten to sixth grade, because it allows for the students to grow and mature before entering middle school. When I went to middle school, I attended Curtis Middle School, and I loved the staff there! They cared about each one of the students and wanted to see us strive. Moving up, ninth grade was by far my favorite year ever, because the freshmen had an entire building dedicated to them, also known as Lowery Freshman Center. Bonus, they just built a new freshmen center, so it is very clean and updated (both physically & technology wise). Now that I am a senior at Allen High School, I can look back and realize how good I had it in the Allen isd. I loved being a student here, and am thankful that I moved to Allen!

My daughter has attended Pre-K at Rountree Elementary and is just starting kindergarten at Kerr Elementary and we couldn’t be happier. The teachers and all staff at both schools were and are so helpful and caring towards the kids. I have the utmost confidence that she will excel in Allen and I never plan on leaving. Not only do they have the best technologies for their students’ success, but they take security and safety very seriously. I never worry about leaving my daughter at school and I know they will protect her. There are so many activities they can participate in and things for the parents to be involved with throughout the year... Their facilities are top notch! You’ll love it if you get the chance to join the Eagles Family!

I’ll update you later on in life!
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.
