Velma Alma is the best school ever. I have always struggled with family and they are not there for me but the teachers of Velma are so amazing. They have basically raised me and have taken care of me. They are like parents to me and have changed my life forever. They have taught me so much on how to mature and to get rid of my anger problems. They were always there for me when I needed to cry and were always here to congratulate me when I did great. They have made me realize how important teachers are and how they can change a students life. I want to be just like the Velma teachers and teach with the same light the teachers of Velma have done for me. The teachers are like parents to me; they help me with everything and have set a path for me and even when I leave for college, I know that I will be able to ask them for anything! The campus is clean and the teaching is very clear, the food is great here and it helps me with my athletic abilities and Velma offers so many opportunities.

What I like about Velma- Alma is the teaching staff. For most of my high school career, the teachers are always reminding us how college is not going to be easy. They say these things to encourage us to do better and prepare us for the reality of college. One thing I would like to see change would be adding more classes. We lack Art, Foreign Language classes, and many other specifics that most other schools have.
I have always gone to Velma-Alma Public Schools. Velma has always been my home, and I would love nothing more than to have others come to school here. It is an amazing school, and community. Our staff is definitely the best. Everyone always wants to get everyone involved in everything the school has to offer, whether it be sports, clubs, or organizations. Our facility is definitely one of the best. It is a small school, but an amazing school. Our teachers are very helpful, and they always make sure you understand what you are learning. All of the students are very friendly, you can walk up and down the hall and know every single face and know if that person is having a good or bad day. If someone is having a bad day, we try our very best to try to help them start having a better day.
