Alma d'Arte Charter High School Reviews

Alma was a wonderful experience, it was small and friendly and lovely to attend. The culture is probably the only thing I would change. A school's students and culture is ever changing, but I felt in my time there it lost it's focus on the arts, and kids were attending not because Alma was a good school for them but because they didn't want to go anywhere else. While it's laid back attitude is a gift and a curse, all the students need to realize its a school for art and has wonderful opportunities not available anywhere else and they should take advantage of that, not simple go and neglect everything available, especially since it is an opt-in school.

Alma is a great school! The staff is wonderful, there is a great supportive atmosphere among students, I wouldn't choose any other school. The students attitudes can often be too laid back about the academics, and that needs to be worked on by the students themselves.
It's pretty great here. No bullying, students and teachers are open minded and atmosphere is friendly. As an art school we accomplish integrating art into almost everything and have excellent art programs.I will say academics are kind of weak here and could use some adjustments. Both science teachers are absolutely amazing though. I love Alma and highly recommend anyone to come (unless your close minded, homophobic and racist.)
