This school is not fun for me and for my friends. And school isnt supposed to be fun, I know that. But the least the teachers could do is help us with our work. There are certain teachers who continue teaching while the class does not pay attention. I honestly think that most of the teachers don't care about us. And our principal and superintendant do not do a thing when someone is bullied or if a teacher violates your privacy(going through lockers reading through the students personal journal) Dont get me wrong I absolutly love my friends. But, my grades are slipping because these teachers do not give the help that is nessicary. There is absolutly no reason for it.

Allen went through a difficult year last year. The administration is preparing this summer to help the new teachers and the more experienced teachers create an atmosphere in the school that will be conducive to good learning. I know things will improve, and I will do all that I can to help make sure this happens. We have an excellent superintendent and principal. If you have a complaint about the school, be sure to give a possible positive solution to the problem. Negativity doesn't get us anywhere.

Education should be a team approach with teachers and parents, administration, and students working together to do what is best for the children. Remember them? The reason for schools in the first place. I am so disappointed by the comments by teachers, bus drivers, and board members that have been heard throughout the community after the March board meeting. I echo the teachers comment below, 'Let's quit placing blame and work together to find an answer.'

I think that the number of parents and citizens that attended the recent school board meeting speak to the fact that some changes need to be made. It was very apparent to me that the community no longer trusts the Superintendent, and that the message was to be sent that she needs to focus on more than the numbers -- the STUDENTS matter, too. I just hope that everyone is willing to come together and be part of a better future for the district.

This school is in need of change! The quality of education is suffering due to the behaviors of a small sector of the student body. But when you want to say teachers are doing nothing about it, I think you are incorrect. Calls home, referrals to the office, conferences with parents/administration, sleepless nights, professional workshops. Oh, they aren't doing anything! Please! Let's quit placing blame and work together to find an answer.

District 303 continues worry more about finances than it does our children. Administration is lacking in every aspect, not helping our children excel and get help where it is needed. I think our academic testing scores speak for themselves and the complaints that have come in by parents. Money is the root of all evil!

I think that this school needs more help.they need better teachers so that the kids can get a better education.They need better supervision outside during recess and during lunch and after school. The bigger kids bully the smaller kids while the teachers watch and do nothing about it. While another teacher threatens to smack a student in the face because he is touching her staples. we are suppose to be able to trust the teacher to take care of our children while at school and I don't think that is what is happening at this school. And then you have the parents of some children who want to stand outside in front of the students and yell and curse and some of the students. Where were the teachers when this was going on?
