I had Grack for FOP and Allen for CLA and AP compsci. Mr. Allen makes a hard subject fun by picking on people :-) The jests are all in good spirit though and he's very knowledgeable and tries to help out whenever he can. THE COMPSCI CURVES THO. I retook compsci in college and rediscovered my love for it and now I have internship at rito games. thank allen.

Mr. Allen is a fantastic teacher! He doesn't lecture that much, but when he does, he does a fantastic job explaining. Also, he's always willing to help with your computer program. For Compsci IB HL 2, you need the textbook for the quizzes and tests. Overall, he's a great teacher and his class isn't that bad

Mr. Allen is a fantastic teacher! He is hilarious, but he knows how to balance out work time with fun time. He understands how to manage time with his funny jokes and stories with the material that needs to be learned. The material is very clearly explained, and I'm really glad he's my teacher this year! You rock, Mr. Allen!

TIPS: Pretend you are paying attention and he will like you. Do not ask too many stupid questions. Get on his good side. PAY ATTENTION during class for FLIP-FLOPS and LABS!!! Otherwise, you can use the textbook.
