Allen High School has the nation's best selection of courses (with an IB program as well) and extracurriculars. We rank very high in all disciplines nationally. However, we have corrupt and incompetent security guards who ignore serious problems just to bark Where's YOUR ID on an industrial scale, overworked and incompetent counselors, redundant and ineffective EOC testing protocol designed to cater to the lowest common denominator, leftist-biased English teachers regularly chastising right-leaning political views, a joke of a chemistry department where every teacher doesn't teach, and a very ineffective French program in which the majority of students are failing. EVERY SINGLE student in any AP class cheats on their assignments.

A lot of LoveJoy High is nothing but a spoiled bunch of little drug using, racist, party going kids that show no respect for elders, lie, cheat and steal....not a good atmosphere and not a bright future for our country. What are they really teaching?

Everyone in Allen High School is just so awesome, they're all about sex and drugs. They have the best parties, and they love to get wasted, and we have the best drug dealers on this campus. I could get cocaine in less than 2 minutes, i approve of this high school it teaches my child about the way of life.

As a current student at AHS and I can personally say that unless you dont hold strong value to person expression and individual acception, this school is not one of the best. Overly strict and socially akward, students are often ignored or judged if they're too smart or too enthusiastic about learning or anything besides sports, by both students AND teachers. The main problem I have with the school is the designated cliches, the worst I've experienced in the 4 schools I've attended. Also, athletics seems to be the soul priority of the school. To further elaborate, during the last 8 weeks of my sophomore year, we were extremely low on paper (even reduced to using recycled and the back of old sheets) yet the school focused its finance on a $60 million dollar stadium. Academically, the school isn't too bad. It has the rare IB program and a CUAD C facility downstairs. Having 4000 students is a hassle in the halls, and one-on-one time is definetly difficult to obtain (they have a student-teach-student program to help this). Depending on the teacher, when you go into tutorials the teachers dont seem to want to sit down with you and help. They more often answer one question, give you a sheet and say go for it and sit back at their computer. Activities also take up most time of active students it seems, so much that if you arent in them you feel a little left out so thats encouraging. Overall, Allen is an all american school, over 79% white, and socially akward. I'm transferring to PESH next year, but to any future enrolling students- I wish you luck(:

Allen High School is a new looking, big, beautiful school. It's bountiful with new computers, and new gym equipment. There's a huge band that is very accepting to new members (biggest high school band in the world), and numerous clubs. The kids here are all very friendly, and so are the teachers, who stay after school every day to tutor kids who need help. The cafeteria is loaded, with eight or so different lines catering different kinds of food, including a bakery with the best cookies ever. Overall, Allen's great.
