Scheduling for classes is actually really easy you just pick classes you want or need to take soon in with the required classes and the counselors will do their best to fit all the first pick classes you want in your schedule! I'd say some popular classes in my school are art, gym, and dual enrollment(college classes).
I love Alma High School. Spending my last 4 years here I have learned a lot. The academic opportunities are fantastic. I really love that they offer a college and career readiness class. It really helped me with the SAT. However, not a lot is done about bulling or PDA in the halls. It is not a bad school, but more can be done to help students. All students should feel safe and be happy to come to school, sadly that is not the case for all students. I'm sure Alma is not the only high school that feels that. Over all school is what you make it. So the students recieve what they put in.
