Everyone is so friendly and ready to help students learn. They care about everyone and want to see them succeed. There is a good amount of clubs and organizations that you can find others who are into the same thing as you. The administration is open and is ready to help with anything you come to them with. From the principals to the counselors to the janitors, there is an atmosphere of care, understanding, and helpfulness. It's a great place to learn and find a forever family of friends!

Alma High School is overall a very good school. There are opportunities for everyone regardless of their interests. Also, for the most part everyone is very friendly to each other. The atmosphere of the school is very good. The teachers are very kind and try to make sure everyone understands what is going on in the classroom. There are, however, a couple things that could make the school better. There is a very big focus on sports, and while that is good to an extent, I believe there should be more focus on academics and things needed for the classrooms. I believe there needs to be more classes to prepare students for college. Also, the musical and theater side of the school needs more recognition because while they do very well, they do not receive the same attention as other activities do.
Alma High School gives their students great access to secondary eduction. Many athletic and muscial scholarships are offered. It is also a great place where the administration is equally supportive of every activity, athletics, musical, theater, and education.
