New Allison Academy leaders have been chosen!
Allison Academy strives to aspire students to become future leaders, by joining the ranks of the Student Council and running for an official position! Every year, students have a chance to promote their skills like leadership, communication, teamwork, organization, debating skills, and public speaking, through incredibly creative student campaigns presented on Election day. This year, the candidates had amazing speeches and ideas, and were greeted with widespread enthusiasm from their peers who have carefully chosen the new Student Council representatives! We are looking forward to our new candidates who will impersonate Allison Academy students’ best interests!
Creativity, spookiness and fun activities as determinants of the Halloween celebration

Raising awareness about law enforcement: A visit by Miami Dade
At Allison Academy, we place great importance on making our students an active part of the community through creating numerous opportunities for students to gain a better understanding of the local community and establish positive relationships outside school! We were more than happy to host The Miami Dade Police Department from the City of North Miami Beach, who shared real-world lessons and discussed relevant issues to raise awareness about law enforcement. Students had a chance to improve their perception of the criminal justice system, engage with the officers, learn about their day-to-day training, ask questions about their experiences and work, weapons, and even try on their work gear!
Allison Academy dance hall turned into True Winter Wonderland
Everyone had the opportunity to showcase their dance moves and listen to their favorite tracks rocking glimmery dresses and white outfits to represent another festive and joyful Winter Formal event! Hallways were crowded with positive energy from our students, parents, and faculty who enjoyed the magical winter atmosphere underneath flashing lights and snowflakes falling!
Preparing for a bright academic future - Taking the PSAT test at Allison Academy
The end of the school year is reserved for college preparation and the best opportunity to identify the strong points and weaknesses of students’ knowledge, identify their shortcomings, and work on improving, is by taking the PSAT, which stands for “Preliminary Scholarship Aptitude Test”. Allison Academy students are known for their strong academic preparation, distinctive talents, and outstanding performance in standardized tests, which are a direct result of the good preparation that our school gives through different activities!
Joyful music and pure holiday vibes: Annual Holiday Show performances
The Annual Holiday Show performance is a regularly scheduled event at our school when Allison Academy’s choir members put an effort to make an outstanding performance of holiday classics, wonderfully serenading their peers, parents, and faculty members! The choir members made sure to deliver to the spectators the best choice of Christmas carols, like the commonly known song – “Last Christmas”, which put everyone who attended the show in the highest holiday spirits and spread the Christmas atmosphere over the whole school!
