PART IV. VISION/MISSION STATEMENT
Allen High School's mission statement is:
"Each student's potential shall be revealed, respected, and fulfilled."
By offering a safe and secure environment for each student, students can
feel at ease to focus on their participation in various programs. To find
which programs, courses, and activities best fit his or her talents, counseling
is offered to students with input from parents. Rigorous coursework is
provided for all students to ensure that AHS respects each student's intellect
and prepares each student for post-secondary pursuits. With more than
90% of the student body attending post-secondary institutions, AHS constantly
monitors what colleges and corporations say is needed for a successful
future. By reminding and revealing to parents and students what skills
and knowledge will be needed for the students to be successful when they
leave high school in programs such as "Eagle Vision," all stakeholders
understand what options exist for each student. Campus programs, organizations,
and clubs are organized to help each student fulfill his or her educational
potential. This includes helping students become socially aware and physically
fit. By achieving the mission, AHS enhances the lives and spirits of young
people - our future.
Using the mission as a foundation for decision-making, AHS maintains flexibility
in scheduling each student's program to ensure that the student doesn't
miss any opportunities that will help fulfill his or her potential. The
AHS faculty and administration embrace the efforts of parents and the
community in the partnership to do what is best for the individual student.
Whether it involves doubling the time a student has in a specific course
to help the student gain the needed skills, or allowing the student a
more flexible schedule to allow the student to be off-campus to take advantage
of other opportunities, AHS flexes to ensure that each student receives
the service he or she deserves.
AHS is a school any parent would desire for
their child. A well-prepared and caring staff and administration takes
pride in helping the children who come to AHS as sophomores leave as young
adults upon graduation. While maintaining the highest educational standards,
the school culture remains nurturing without suffocating the students'
need to explore their potential.
