  • I was very pleased with my first year at the Richard Allen school. I disagree with the posts below and believe my child got a great education this year. Her teacher was very good and she was invovled in after school programs. Programs could be better and contact with parents improved. Other than that I would not go anywhere else.

  • The school really needs to check who they hire to educate our children. The staff they brought on board this year are unprofessional and focus more on getting into one another pants instead of teaching our kids.

  • This school turnover for staff is high. The staff for the 2009/2010 school are unprofessional. The male staff are more interested in get into the females pants. some of the female staff dress as if they are going to a club.

  • The new staff for the 2009-2010 school year does not seem to be that bright. The new dean seems to do fly by trainings that they think it sounds good but, you can tell that half is made up. The turnover is quite high and there is not enough supplies for the teachers. The lunchroom is too small. Some staff are given a cell phone and the question is for what? it's not used for school purpose, everyone use them for their own personal use. The phone are not monitored by adminstrators. The school needs to think about putting that money to other use, like supplies for teachers than paying a monthly cell phone bill for there personal use.

  • The gym and lunch is being shared and the dean's office is a joke. The staff at the school yells alot and the administration spends alot of time on the cell phone or school phone. The staf at this school needs to be monitored like students.
