Principal's Message > The Allen Vision

Our school is an enthusiastic community of learners where students, teachers, and parents work together toward clearly focused educational, personal, and social goals.

We are dedicated to preparing our students to
• work productively
• participate in our democracy
• make intelligent independent decisions
• live in our culturally diverse society

To accomplish these goals, we believe that we must provide our students with a meaningful “thinking curriculum,” a curriculum that
• connects students to what they are learning
• allows students to work toward meaningful goals, on real tasks
• demands that students do quality work
• prepares students to solve problems and to synthesize new learning from old
