    "Some teachers at William Allen are there for their students while others aren't. Most teachers are willing to sit down with their students if they're having trouble to discuss their options. While the other teachers will either not help their students and force them to learn on their own or will give them one opportunity to help the student and if they still don't understand it, the student is on their own."

    "Just like any other schools this school has its goods and bads. Very few teachers are hard on students, most are easy. All teachers are friendly and are available for help whenever. However the few that are hard on kids really know their stuff and teach well. AP course teachers are great. At this school it all depends on which path YOU wanna take."

    "Even though it has a bad name, my time at William Allen has been quite something. I love the diversity, the school building itself, the great teachers I've had, and of course the memories. Even though the school could improve a lot on education, school spirit, and involvement, its a lot of fun. You witness something different everyday. Students who are involved and care a lot about their education work really, really hard on both education and on distractions. At Allen, its very easy to get distracted and on the wrong path due to the students that attend here, but its also easy to change and become one of the leaders- hardworking, intelligent, Canaries."

    "I love the variety of clubs but overall it's not the best. That's not to say it's the worst."

    "There are both good and bad teachers. Overall I think they're okay, but compared to teachers I've had in the past the majority of the teachers at William Allen are just average."
