A family-oriented environment really helped me to learn faster
I came from Brazil and I was having difficulty with English. Being in a small classroom with just a few students and having a family-oriented environment really helped me to learn English faster and to do well in school.

Small groups promote high academic performance
I enrolled my son Nial at Allison Academy when he was young because I felt that he needed to be in a smaller setting to master basic skills and improve his academic performance. I also wanted to put him in the right environment that would be conductive to learning. The public schools are overcrowded which makes learning very difficult.

Focus on student’s self-esteem and personal attention given
My son Renzo was in public school and not progressing as I felt that he should, so I enrolled him in Allison Academy. For the first time, Renzo began to feel successful and to actually enjoy school and learning. His self-confidence increased and he continued to improve his academic achievement. Renzo was in Allison for six years, and graduated in 2010.
He is pursuing his career goal to become a law enforcement officer. I credit Allison Academy’s program of small classes, personal attention, and focus on the student’s self-esteem for Renzo’s success. He truly felt that his teachers and the administration had his best interest in mind while he was a student. In addition, the exceptional quality of the close friends that Renzo made at Allison, made me know that he was in the right environment for middle and high school. He participated in sports and was on the basketball team, which gave him an added high school interest.
During Renzo’s time at Allison, I served as President of the Parent Teacher Student Association and found the parents cooperative and highly supportive of the school and its programs. I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of Allison Academy and continue to remain in touch with the school and to support the school.

Our school takes pride in having future leaders, innovators and outside-the-box thinkers for its students
The teachers at Allison Academy are experienced and able to take a unique approach with each student. Thanks to the top-quality education that our teachers have obtained and relevant years of experience in education, they are able to inspire our students and to prepare them for the educational challenges that lie ahead.
Allison Academy’s learning environment, which encompasses interactive and multidisciplinary lessons, allows the teachers to dedicate themselves to each student individually so as to provide them with the best possible education.
Continual professional development and following global trends in their respective fields is an additional quality of our teachers. This allows the students to acquire applicable skills through a modern approach to teaching. Thanks to the teachers’ dedication, the students can master the materials much more easily, which brings multiple benefits later on in their schooling.
A place for growth and development
Allison Academy cherishes not only its students, but its teachers, as well, which is why we constantly strive to provide them with the perfect environment for growth and development.
The fact that, after a hard day’s work, the teachers leave the school fulfilled and happy with their workplace, provides the students with an incentive for even greater achievements.
The positive words of Allison Academy’s teachers are proof that these are schools in which the teachers truly are the students’ best friends.
