    Allison was an exceptionally good environment (for the exceptional child we sent there)! This student was never "easy" on teachers loved asking challenging questions questioning authority and never "suffered fools lightly". Moving from a religious to a secular school was only one of the many issues that could have caused difficulties and over which his parents fretted. But Dr. Allison and ALL the teachers were highly sensitive to -- not just ours -- but each child's "specialness". They were respectful of the children while maintaining a better-than-expected classroom decorum. They broke through (or more accurately melted) this child's protective shell. The student emerged healthier with a more positive attitude towards life. Parents able and willing to be involved are treated like family. For this particular student and family Allison was virtually all for which we could have hoped. (I'm not qualified to judge but this may not be a perfect choice for parents & students set on an Ivy League future.)

    Excellent program! Personal attention to each student is provided. The administration and teachers are cooperative with parents and grandparents.

    The Allison Academy has made a world of difference for my daughter. There is never a time that the head master can't stop what she's doing and listen to parents and students. My daughters grades have improved and she is finally happy after all the years out of place in public school.

    Allison Academy not only provides my two sons with an excellent education but also provides a warm secure learning enviornment. The Principal Dr. Allison is not only an outstanding educator but a warm person who cares about each of the students in the school. It is wonderful as a parent to have personal contact with the Principal and teachers.
