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.

Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school's profile?

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

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.
