Alma d'Arte Charter High School Reviews

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.

Most of the teachers give consistent and strong effort in helping their students pass their classes, and the school administration takes special interest in encouraging their students to succeed in their schooling; in fact many programs have been implemented to help students succeed in school. However, the school desperately lacks sufficient funding to expand their ideas. The classrooms are a little worn down, the school campus is reasonable but small, there is insufficient parking available, and most teachers, even though they try considerably hard to help their students pass, don't have the means to properly support them because they lack sufficient funding. The only thing keeping this school from being of excellent quality is the lack of funding and financial support they receive for their school. But the quality that the staff show themselves is rather encouraging to students and is excellent.
Overall, the school is amazing. There are many amazing artists, and the environment is much more open and discussion based than any other school. There are some gaps in the academics, as there is a total of only 4 AP classes, two of which are English courses, and some of the teachers can be prone to putting on movies rather than discussion. Overall, the school cultivates a strong bond between students and teachers, students and faculty, and students and students. Alma is the type of place where if you meet an alumni whom you've never met, the bond will be instantaneous. The community aspect is indescribable.
