    The School is so bad! I have submitted application in Jan 2014 for Fall 2014. However after I have submitted for over 1 months the school never gave any news to me and did anything In this week I found the school have not space yet in last month. I request to return my application fee but the school said they had to keep the application fee! This acts is completely deceived!!! If you haven't got any space Why do you still to receive application?!

    Alma Heights is a wonderful school environment for my high school students. I especially love the diverse student population and faculty. My kids have a bigger understanding of the international community by attending school with students from around the globe Ghana South Korea Mongolia Taiwan Brazil and many more more! The school is a loving and inclusive environment for all students. Alma Heights has a heart for God and a heart for their students. Excellent faculty members challenge my students academically and they are accredited by Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). Alma Heights achieved accreditation with the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

    My daughter attended Alma Heights for High School. She thrived during her 4 years. She loved the sports league for volleyball and basketball and had great coaching which really helped her improve her game. The games were very exciting to watch. She felt loved by all the teachers and really got to know them. I loved the small town community feel there. and the Christian love and covering over the school.

    We love the nurturing small school atmosphere. The class sizes are small so our children do not get lost. We have a gifted student and a struggling student and both are served well.
