Elsie Allen is a great school. There are so many teachers that care and work hard to engage us. The Honors classes are challenging! Sometimes there are students who don't try and that can be annoying, but overall, I wouldn't want to go anywhere else!
Elsie Allen is a great school!! it's true we have a bad reputation which might have been from passed year beacause it has nothing to do with us now! If you come and take a look you'll se the beauty of Elsie!!
I am a Senior at Elsie Allen High school and before attending Elsie Allen I attended Montgomery High School for a year and a half. Due to my experienced I can say that the honors courses at Elsie Allen High are harder then those at Montogomery High School. Plus, Elsie has the UC Center which allows hard working students to take SSU courses during their academic school year. I'd have to say that with Elsie Allen's hard working staff this school is doing a fine job on educating their students. Elsie Allen only gets a bad reputation due to it's surrounding area. Look at all the work Elsie Allen's Lobo Unity has done in the community before saying Elsie Allen is such a bad school. We have teachers that care about us as people; not just id numbers on a roll sheet. Also, you have to realize that the student's personal behavior and responsibility is how they see the school to be. If you want to worry about people you don't like and getting high then yeah you aren't going to have the best time at an educational instituition.
Not a very fun school to be at; budget cuts make it far worse. Horrible in academics. Students don't try enough to pass, its very disappointing.
I have been very happy with my children attending Elsie Allen. I have three who have already graduated. One just finished law school on the east coast, one graduated from Univ. of FL, and one is at USF in Tampa on a partial academic scholarship. It would be helpful if the rest of the SW community would support their neighborhood schools!
I am a student from Elsie Allen & I have to say it is probably the best school I've attended. The teachers are amazing and not only do they teach us what is needed to be successful, they do it in an engaging which makes it a lot more interesting to learn. Also in response to the many negative perceptions of this school, I must say being the "quiet" one & observing others behavior, the problem doesn't seem to be the way the school is run, but by the unwillingness of the students to pay attention & engage in activities or respect teachers/administrators as authority figures creating conflict & distraction which effects the class as a whole causing a possible setback in lesson plans.
This school Was horrible when it opened, and I would only imagine with the budget cuts it's gotten far worse. Do not send you children to Elsie Allen if you care about their education. I taught myself more at home than I ever learned while attending.
I am sad to say i was a student of such a poorly run school. My experiance at Elsie will not be soon forgotten. Administrators Just didnt care! I was a trobbled teen and insted of trying to help they chose to push me further down. I am very suprised with the high marks they have recived on this site!
My child received an excellent education at Elsie Allen and is now a successful college senior. The teachers were amazing, the most motivated, dedicated, inspiring group I have seen. The socio-economically diverse student body had great pride in their school and really pulled together in the face of outside criticism. Students here did not judge each other on designer clothing labels.
Elsie allen is a very good school. The teachers are very nice and caring. I haven't been to a school were the teachers try to help out the students as much as the teachers at Elsie Allen. It is very fun going there. Everyone is very spirited and outgoing. Overall elsie allen is a very good school aside of all the bad things the press has to say. We have overcame our reputation of a bad school and are doing our best to show everyone other wise.
