I just transfered my son from jefferson to allendale becuase the previous school was overcrowded, and had no resources for my son. My son is happy to go to school now :). Adhd recourses, speech therapy,computer class, after school programs, plus walking distance to the park (allendale) for their after school program as well. Its been less than week and im happy with my son in that school. Clean campus, nice staff.

About this school

Allendale is in the forefront of using Balanced Literacy as our instructional model. This is a group of purposeful literacy experiences such as Guided Reading, Independent Reading, Literature Circles, Written Responses to Text, and more. The final goal is to enhance each learner's effectiveness as a reader. Learners learn by participating in the act of reading. Our learners will: Work together, Be exposed to different genres, Establish goals and evaluate them, Engage in meaningful discussion about reading, Take responsibility for their own learning, Read for meaning, and Develop a deeper understanding of what they read. Our school is also an innovator in elementary science education. This includes hands-on science experiments and science literacy (reading and writing about science). At Allendale, we hold high expectations and we recognize that our students need strong support in order to succeed.
