According to NICHE, Allen High School currently boasts a grade of A-. On the NICHE website, Allen High School alumnus gush fondly about their opportunities to join clubs as diverse as the Peer Assistance Leadership program (wherein students are able to mentor elementary students around the district) to the Ping Pong Club to the Junior World Affairs Council. And who hasn’t visited, seen, or at least heard of Allen High’s new football stadium and fine arts auditorium?

Well, if you’re a current or soon-to-be Allen Eagle, you should definitely check out some of these options. Colleges, after all, aren’t simply interested in your sterling grade point average, and careers aren’t built out of A’s and B’s alone. Getting involved in various extracurricular activities and hobbies is a great way to build up your resume, and make yourself more attractive to college admission counselors and future employers. Of course, taking on new extracurriculars is also an important step in isolating your true interests and personal goals while simultaneously exploring possible jobs and career paths for yourself. What skills do you want to develop? What types of people do you want to work with? What types of tasks and goals do you most enjoy working toward?
