Allen Elementary School1

My step-daughter went to Allen for Kindergarten and for the first 4 months it was good, she was put into a higher course, but then after Christmas, she was being bullied, and i brought it up to her teacher and she did nothing about, her classes mates were getting her into trouble, and she was getting Blues, but when all this started to happen her started getting Yellows, which yellow is not good. I also had a lot of problems with the lunch ladies.
My son began going to Allen in pre-k as part of their special needs curriculum. Because of their fantastic efforts, he is now in regular education classes! They do such a fantastic job with all the kids. I'm moving specifically to be in Allen's school district!
This is one of the best schools my kids have attended. We had to move last year because our gifted program was sent to another school. The only reason my kid is in that other school is because of the gifted teacher Mrs. Riley. That other school is awful, we miss the friendly, open communication of the staff at Allen and the recognition of our gifted kids. They were never made to feel ashamed that they were smart.
It is my children's first year with this school and I am impressed. The staff is friendly and involved. I abosolutly love my youngest sons' Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Sheri. She always has a smile and a great attitude!
I love being able to work with the children at Allen School. The staff is so friendly, open communication, encourages eachother and their students openly. Because I work in different schools on a weekly basis I have seen a variety of things and Allen Elementary has always made me feel welcome, they are respectful not only to their staff, the parents, but most importantly the students themself. I am so thankful for that.
As a relative of students who attend I find this school and staff top notch. The principal Molly, is actively involved in the school, staff, knows students, and creates a positive atmosphere of learning- celebrates success - no matter how small!
