I love this school! I've sent 3 kids through this school and have never had a proble m with office staff. The teachers are hit and miss like some have said but that's all schools.

The school is clean and very well kept. The teachers are hit and miss, some are awesome, some just get by, others are burnt out and it shows. The fine arts program is very poor, as everything is geared toward core subjects and leaves out those students that do great in core subjects but have an interest ...  Read more

The principle of this school is verrrry unprofessional and does not care about concerns of parents. I wouldn't even give it one star.

This is our third year at Allentown and it is hands down the best school around. After speaking with many that have children in private school, it is as challenging if not more so. The environment is clean and cheerful. While it is a large school, it feels like a family.

1st and last...First year here,won't allow my child to go again. There are various teachers there that do not speak well to their students. The only positive thing to say is that children do have to wear uniforms. Education is important to me and my children (any child) and it's a shame that this ...  Read more

We had to move closer to town but We Loved This School! The playground is huge and included a wetland designed by the students. We had a student who was LD & speech problems as well as a gifted child. Every teacher was excellent here. Area is growing with McMansions so transfers are next to impossible ...  Read more
