Alma Senior High School Reviews

Alma Senior High school has provided a well rounded experience for their students. They have many clubs that are open to any students to attend. Additionally, many teachers are advocates for their students. Though every school has their "lemons", the majority of the teachers at AHS work thoroughly to provide a quality education for the student in their classroom. AHS also has a very large, and well maintained food pantry. This is something unique to our school as it is a no questions asked resource where students can receive food, clothing, toiletries and even school supplies.

The best part of this school system is the teachers. They all truly care about the success of their students and will do almost anything to help them get to where they want to go. One part of this school system that needs work, especially at the high school is a better connection between the administration and the students/parents.
At Alma Senior High School, I have enjoyed my experience somewhat. I enjoyed the atmosphere of sporting events, but the staff at Alma Senior High School don't have or show much pride which doesn't make for a exciting year. The school also focuses more on athletics and the importance of their upgrades rather than academics and the student's needs. I would like to see a shift towards the importance of the students.
