Allyn Finch seems to be a school that thinks of the students, all students. They have good academics, but are always trying to improve. The staff is knowledgeable and plesant. If you want to be an involved parent, you can be. The students participate in many academic, athletic and character building activities. It'a a good pace for kids.
