This school and its staff have proven their devotion to the children in our community <3 I would never let my children go anywhere else
Don't know why this school was rated so high. My daughter hated every year there. She was at this school from kindergarten to 5th grade. She was bullied and the teachers and principle did nothing and didn't care to. I'm not the only parent that feels this way I know several other parents who had the same problems where the school did nothing to protect the students from bullies but encouraged and rewarded the bullies behavior. Every time I went in to try to get a conference with the principle Mrs. Batts I was told she was busy and had to see someone else in the 6 years my daughter went there I not once got to speak to her in a meeting about the situation. She even "made fun" of the parents concerns about the bulling problem in one of the bulletins she sent home with the students. I was seriously appalled at the behavior of the staff and that they had the nerve to laugh in the faces of the parents of the students that were "terrified" to go to school everyday. Parents please speak up for your children and tell your story about your child's experience at this school. We WILL me heard!!!!

The students, staff and administration at A. T. Allen are all amazing people. It's a wonderful school at which to work.
My grandson is excelling with Mrs. Dove in 1st grade. I give them a 10. Great job!
I am very surprised at what my daughter has learned already in this school. Their advanced reading classes are hands down the best I've seen! My daughter is excelling academically in all areas because she is being taught at her own level instead of as a group as a whole. I can't begin to express how important that is! Yes other schools in the area may be having Fall Festivals but they don't compare academically to this school!
My son is finishing his first year at A.T. Allen and I am more than impressed. I have worked in a museum and have witnessed everything from home-schooling, private schooling, public schooling and montessori and A.T. Allen has certainly proved that public schools can be a breath of fresh air. Our children should have every opportunity to see society in it's different shades and cultures, A.T. Allen supports and encourages our differences and celebrates our similiarities. My son has had a wonderful experience and we look forward to many wonderful years at A.T. Allen. I feel he will continue to gain knowledge that will take him far.
Academic programs excell above what my kids received at a Christian school. It challenges their thought process and does not rely upon memorization. The extra classes (as I call them) like music; art and such could be strengthened yet this would then lead to a 'take away' from the core curriculum. I say stay focused and those extra pursuits can be handled by the families. Parental involvement is great (as I can attest to my wife's constant involvement). The only area I see difficulty in is the bus drivers themselves. I would like to see more consistency and less jumping to conclusions and suspending kids from the bus. The real goal is to get them to school; not suspend them the possible only avenue to get there.
