New Salem-Almont School District No. 49 Reviews

2 reviews
I started going to this school in 7th grade. It is a small school with almost no diversity of race or religion. The teachers are ok because they would rather be teaching at a larger school. Since it is a small school everybody knows each other and can be very rude. Teachers also make it obvious of who their favorites are. There is not a wide variety of classes to take. Unless you want to be a farmer you pretty much have to stick to ITV and online classes. Clubs are pretty much limited to yearbook, the school news paper, FFA, Speech/Drama, and FBLA. There’s only a few students in the newspaper and the yearbook clubs. Many students are in FFA and speech/drama. The FBLA club is nonexistent. The lack of clubs provides little after school activities. The opportunities in this school are very limited.

I like the small school. It's nice to have the opportunity to meet with your teachers and not have a ginormous class. The class sizes are perfect. I do not like that we have a Common Learning Time. Our first bell rings at 8:10 a.m., but we go to an assigned class until 8:35 a.m. In that amount of time we have a sort of study hall. Mondays we have grade check and Wednesdays we have a group discussion on topics that the principle picks out for the entire school. No student is exempt for this "class." I feel like it is unnecessary for the seniors to be there for CLT.
