    I Attended Almria 2 Years Ago . And Honest It Is Unstable ButMy Years There Were Great . Almria Does Have Their Goods And Bads . The Goods The Teachers Are Great . They Make Sure YouUnderstand The Lesson Before Moving On . They Have Great Activtes For The Students AsWell . The Bads Students In That School Do Bully the Setting The School Is . But that only because the school that they were in is small . And everything is crapped . All the school i been through in my life Almria Is My Favorite . And Till This Day I Go And Visit My Teachers <3 Give Almria A Chance .

    My Grandaughter attends Almira school when I visit for activities I find the students out of control and the overall appearance of the facility and grounds appauling. The conditions are not suitable for children to learn properly and to instill an overall respect for themselves or their community. Someone needs to step in and improve this environment for these students they are our future!

    I am very displeased with this school it started off to be a very pleasent experience when my child was younger but now they have added higher grades which makes it very hard for teacher involvement there are only 2 after school activities which I am aware of but a few of the teachers there are exceptional the safety of the school is another issue a lot of fighting with minimal intervention and the condition of the school is deplorable they have no doors on the bathrooms for the children no soap in the stalls and certain areas of the building looks as if it is falling apart.

    I would like to say that I am very dissatisfied with this school. To start the classrooms are overcrowded one teacher to 36 children. That alone is affecting my childs education due to the number of unruly children in the class. The school is never secure the doors are always unlocked you can walk in the school at anytime and not be stopped to ask where you are going. There are not enough staff to keep the children under control the lunch room is so loud it has to be disturbing the classrooms. The parking lot is unorganized a child will eventually get hurt with the way they have the cars pulling in there. If I had another choice in where I could put my children I would do it immediatly!!!!
