Committment to Excellence

  • Allen ISD offers a challenging curriculum to meet the needs of every student and focuses on providing high-quality instruction and intervention. Students’ mastery of grade-level curriculum is monitored throughout the year in order to address identified needs with classroom instruction, intervention, and enrichment.

    The results of that commitment speak for themselves: Allen ISD has been ranked as the ninth-best school district in Texas, according to Niche.com, which gave Allen ISD an A+ grade. The website, which calculates the rankings based on data from the U.S. Department of Education and survey responses from families, also listed Allen ISD as the 201st best district in the nation. 

    Niche also rates individual campuses, and Allen High School was named the 30th best College Preparatory Public High Schools in Texas out of 1,396 schools. Nationally, AHS ranked near the top 2 percent of the best public high schools out of nearly 17,000 campuses.

    Additionally, Niche’s list of the best public elementary schools in Texas, two of the top twenty schools are from Allen ISD: Preston #13 and Kerr #19. In Niche’s list of the best public elementary schools in Texas, 14 Allen ISD elementary schools were named in the Top 100. All three middle schools in Allen ISD were listed in the top 50 in Texas, with Curtis at #26, Ereckson at #34, and Ford at #41.
