School History

The original Allentown School was built in 1880. Concerned with the education of the children in the community, Mr. Perry W. Allen and neighbors established the one room schoolhouse. It remained until the early 1900's.

Allentown Elementary opened as a new school in the Semmes community for the 1997-98 school year. A state-of-the-art media center, computer lab, multi-purpose room, and gymnasium are areas of distinction in the school's design. The 70,000 square foot facility has 43 classrooms, providing for a capacity of 700 students.
