Congratulations to Rachel Stammen

Rachel has been named Allatoona High School’s 2016 STAR Student. Rachel won this award by being in the top 10% of her class and earning the highest SAT score of any member of the senior class. She will receive special recognition and will go on to compete for the system title. As the STAR student, Rachel has the privilege of selecting a STAR teacher, the educator who has had the most influence on her academic achievement throughout her school career. Rachel has chosen Mr. Joseph Maselli as her STAR Teacher. Allatoona is very proud of our STAR student, Rachel Stammen, and our STAR Teacher, Joseph Maselli. Congratulations to both of you!

Georgia Parent Survey

 This suite of surveys includes student surveys, staff surveys, and parent surveys which are combined together to calculate Allatoona’s School Climate Star Rating on the state of Georgia’s College and Career Ready Performance Index.  The Georgia Parent Survey contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using your personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.  Individual data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online. 

To access the survey, please go to: http://apps.gadoe.org/schoolclimate/parents.nsf/Survey.xsp

Additional congratulations goes out to Rachel Stammen, who earned a commendation from the National Merit Scholarship Program for scoring in the top 5% of all junior PSAT test takers nation-wide.

Taking the AP exam after learning all semester in an AP class is strongly recommended at Allatoona High School.  Why take an AP exam?  There are many great reasons:

  • The AP test is terrific practice for college exams.
  • Students can earn college credit for the high school course if they score a 3,4, or 5 on the AP test (depending on the college of choice).
  • Students are well prepared after spending a semester with teachers who care, help build skills, and are at the school for extra tutoring in the mornings and afternoons.
  • AP testing builds confident college students!
  • Students who sign up for and take the AP exam are exempt from taking the final exam for that AP class.

Get ahead and register for your AP exam now!  Parents and students can visit our new registration site at the following address:


On the Total Registration site you will find it easy to create an account, register for an AP test, and pay online with a credit or debit card.  You can also pay in cash or check at the school, but it is strongly recommended to register and pay online at one convenient stop.  Once you have entered the Total Registration site, you will click on the tab at the top of the page to locate your school and the prompts will help you create an account. 

New this year is our 2015/2016 exam exemption policy for all students who sign up by the end of the 12-week marking period to take the AP exam in May.  Ask any AP teacher or administrator about the details of this opportunity.

Students: You can do it!  You are smart, prepared, and ready to achieve!  Believe in yourself!
