The front desk staff and the sro's were amazing. They were constantly on top of things and once helped me find a diamond ring I had misplaced.

They have resources and are well paid! That helps teachers actually be effective. All teachers from any district are only held back by the test driven curriculums they are handed.

Amount of homework: Too much

When I attended school here, I often had hours of homework I wouldn't complete. I'm not sure if that has now changed.

Only because the resources are there. Having now been to a school system with obviously less funding, my daughter is struggling.

If your child hasn't learned respect before high school, why would the teachers need to reach them that?

The school is not a motivator. That's the parents job. The teachers are there to teach.

Having now experienced other school systems, I can say with assurance that Allen High School gives students opportunities that others do not. It is excellent, well funded, and puts students who try on the right track to college or careers. They are not motivators, simply instructors, but the opportunity and resources are there! Other schools cannot compete with what they can honestly offer. I'm sad we left this district!

This school wasn't that to good when it came to teaching. They treated the good kids like they were bad kids.

They are big on education and preparing their students for the future. Tons of opportunities at this school.

Seniors are required to take only 3 classes and are sent home before 1 pm. Football rocks but academics suck.
