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.)
The teachers really make or break your experience in my personal opinion, and so far, the majority of the teachers I've met/ had are really kind people and will offer help if they see you're struggling.

What really needs to be worked on is the environment.
Out of my entire time at this school, there's been dozens of occasions in which an entire class lesson was stopped to divert and correct the behavior of a student; that's not a good way to go about it at all.
But at the same time, it seems more occasions than not when a student/ students display such disrespectful and inappropriate behavior, nothing is done or said about it in or out of class; this can make it a very hostile environment at times and feel very unsafe with what is said.
The staff could work on diverting that behavior better by pulling the student out for a quick second or talking to them after class instead of disrupting the entire lesson.
