Allendale Elementary School
At Allendale Elementary School, students will continue their Cardinal journey from second to fifth grade. Students will work with a staff who works hard to develop high academic standards within the curriculum, while working to always meet the academic, social and emotional needs of our students. During their time at Allendale, students will continue using educational resources they became acquainted with at Rogers Elementary, while adding new technology based resources as they continue to grow.

Allendale also offers a variety of in-school and after-school programs and clubs that allow students to branch out from their core subject classroom learning. Students will have opportunities to take on school-wide responsibilities with programs like the Expect Respect Club, Peer Mediation and Safety Patrol or invest in their problem-solving skills in the Lego League. During their time at Allendale, students are able to explore their music interests in the band, or focus on physical education with the Cardinal Calming Club, Girls on the Run or the STRIDE program.

Here, students will also learn to become contributing members of the community through community projects like the food and clothing drive, the Angel Tree Project the Recycling program and the Drug Prevention Awareness program. Allendale also offers opportunities for parents to join the PTO or become members of the ELL Parent Advisory Committee, as well as join Adult ESL Survival, where they will focus on social and language skills.
If you plan on joining our cardinal family, we look forward to working with you as a partner in your child's growth. Please contact us with any question you may have regarding our school or programs. 
Melvindale-Northern Allen Park School District’s curriculum is based upon the Common Core State Standards and Michigan’s Grade Level Content Expectations in all subjects. We embrace the concept of a brain-compatible learning environment, recognizing that individuals learn at different rates of growth through different methods of instruction and a variety of teaching/learning styles. Our curriculum makes provisions for the variability of academic skills, interests, and social, emotional, and physical development within our student population.
