Dr. Allison’s Message
The 2019-2020 school year has passed quickly filled with numerous educational activities and experiences for our students. Our students continue to push boundaries, seek out new challenges, and motivate each other creating a school atmosphere that enhances determination, academic, and personal growth.
In the first quarter of this school year our field trip to Rapids Water Park gave students the opportunity to reconnect and to establish new connections. Students also traveled to Key Largo and visited John Pennekamp for the glass bottom boat ride to see the coral. Ninth grade science students built and launched rockets getting hands-on experience on Newton’s Laws of Motion and forces of gravity. The Science Club is conducting active research in link with NASA and Fairchild Botanic Gardens. Students have also made course specific visits to the Broward County Court House, to colleges of interest, the Everglades, and an overnight visit to Tampa. Our campus has been visited by various guest speakers who have introduced and exposed students to imminent topics. Representatives from several colleges and universities have visited our campus to encourage and promote their universities.
We are proud of our students’ accomplishments in competitions that reach outside our school environment including 26 of our middle school students whose poetry was selected to be published in the hardcover book called “A Celebration of Poets”. We are equally proud of our student athletes who participated in basketball and volleyball, as well as our musicians in the rock/jazz band, and students who are active in student government.
The Allison Academy program with our exceptional curriculum and all of our activities would not be possible without our highly professional and dedicated staff. We have expanded our environment with a variety of electives including a popular science elective, life skills/culinary arts, introduction to law class, robotics, coding, chorus, drama, guitar, and art.
We remain committed to thoughtful and incremental initiatives each year to help our school improve and better prepare our students for their futures andstrive in helping our seniors find the right college or university uniquely suited to their talents and interests. We are always vigilant continuing to improve our safety and security measures for our students.
