    "this schools need more attention then others think. I'm a senior there and i play sports, sing and i volunteer when i can. as a school in general its not a school at all no bonding is done there many "GROUPS" who just stay together and that's it. for sports i would say we are ok but from others schools views we suck i did soccer this year and got two coaches who nevered played soccer it dosen't make sense. and the teammates don't know anything and all we did was argue. now teaching i've had couple amazing teachers and horrible teacher who are a waste in my time and others. higher racked school offices don't understand what we are being taught we are lowest ranking school in the state for a reason and they think if they make it easier we'll pass but its worse people just don't care because ITS TOO EASY. the school just enforced a uniform policy and its really stupid it was decided if we look better we will do better and that is LIES it just made many poverty students go and buy almost expensive pants and polo, if you notice 37 percent of Allentown is in poverty. I just wished these "Officials" would try to understand its the student who make the school and break it."

    "i am senior this year at allen. sports vary in talent overall sport wise we're good, but not great, were ok especially in boys basketball, field hockey, swimming, and track. we're inproving in lacrosse though. academics are alright. depending on what class you take, it could be really really easy one period, then you could go to a class where it's very difficult to pass any of the tests. with students we need more positive attitudes, and manners. our activities are good, the arts is SPECTACULAR, especially our chorale, chorus, and theater program. students generally dont care and skip classes, but thats gonna have to change. our new principals are actually nicer than anyone thinks, they've attended our construction company meetings. the main concern i have though is student motivation to learn and get intoc activities they are interested in. the school is kind of dirty though. our fountains usually have gum and garbage in them. my overall view is ok. we have spirt i'd give you that. some teachers dont really teach and when it comes to a test the students have no clue what they're doing."

    "Excellent diversity of opportunities. Well educated & very caring instructors truly enhance student motivation. (Once academically rated # 4 in nation. Students defensively complain, 'to much negative publicity.' A fight here & there isn't bad for over 3,000 students)!! Funds needed."

    "As a former student at Allen I can personally say that that school is great. The teachers are cool and they care. Of course its a big school and theres always a kid who doesn't want to be there, but thats in every school. Allen is a great school that has lots of extracurriclums and offer alot of AP abd rigorous courses and awesome electives for students. I loved it there. And enjoyed my teachers and fellow classmates."
