Allentown High School Ratings & Reviews
AHS fosters great community relationships with its administrative staff and teachers who go above and beyond everyday. As a parent, you get the feeling that the staff really takes the time to get to know their students. Great staff participation at events with a sincere desire to be there. The academics are excellent and the extracurricular opportunities are amazing.
AHS is a wonderful school in general; the academics are great, there's an extracurricular activity for everyone, the teachers do care about the students and despite people saying otherwise, the students are all friendly and accepting and bullying isn't tolerated, which is great. However, HOWEVER, the principal is actually the reason I won't give it a 5/5. Vending machines are locked during school hours, cellphones are not allowed at all (which is a problem with the copious amount of emergencies we get), security guards EVERYWHERE for no reason causing us to be late for class, etc etc. I do understand the importance of establishing rules but this is pretty much crossing the line. I actually don't think she cares about any of us and I mean, we're highschoolers now, we do deserve the freedom that the other kids our age get in different schools. We're really just the equivalent to a middle school with older people, and everybody hates it. 5/5 for the school and it's staff, 0/5 for the rules and principal. A surprising amount of people do want to transfer out solely because of that, myself included. It doesn't seem bad in words, but trust me, it feels like we're in a prison.
Student of AHS Great school, I am currently enrolled here. The teaching staff is excellent (very friendly and we'll educated, minus parts of the administrative staff such as the principal (vice principals are nice). Overall this school has been a great experience for me, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for great high school years. 5/5 for the overall school -5/5 for the principal
My daughter is currently a senior at Allentown and she has loved this school every year. Excellent teachers, and no bullying tolerated at all.
My son loves the school and the learning environment provided by the faculty. No complain whatsoever from our family
