Hello and Welcome to Allen Public Schools!
My name is Dr. Bill Caruthers and I am very happy that you are giving us a closer look. I’m proud of Allen Public Schools and I want you to be too! Right now our schools are growing and we are doing our best to be the kind of dynamic, progressive school that our students deserve. I am a big believer in the “3 A’s” of education: Academics, Athletics, and the Arts! With this in mind and at a time when many Oklahoma schools are cutting programs, we are adding various opportunities to our curriculum and activities to our schedules. Drama, Visual Art, and Academic Teams are just three of the things that are getting some new emphasis this year, along with the relocation, and complete renovation of our Band Room and Music Facility. We have embarked on a revitalization in our Athletics as well! Already this year we have renovated the Football Stadium, complete with new restrooms and concession stand makeover. Right now our Softball Complex is getting a complete renovation (soon to be followed by a companion Baseball facility) and a new Football Fieldhouse complete with a Weight and Fitness Room for use by both Boys’ and Girls’ programs that will be second to none in the area.
As for staff, it really is simple; our goal is to find the best people that we can and let them do their jobs. To make sure this is happening we must do our part by giving them the tools, guidance, and encouragement to do the best that they can for our students. This approach is already paying off!
We know that you have many choices when it comes to your children’s education and we appreciate you giving us a look! We strive to give “big school” opportunities with a “small school,” family-style service attitude. Come give us a look, we think you’ll like what you see!
Bringing our “A-Game” Everyday!
