Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective
June 10, 2015
Some teachers may be ok but in any experience i have ever had, the teachers dont care.....always tell my kids to come after school whenever they dont understand something, even when i tell them my kids can not stay after due to schedules, then they say oh well....thats all i can do for them. They dont like to "email" parents back when there is questions when they want parents to email them. They are rude. The list goes on

I honestly never have any idea how much or how little homework is ever given because its all done in an ipad that is easily erased or not shown to me so i don't know.

If the administration doesnt have any of those qualities, which they dont.....you cant expect the students to have it

The ENTIRE school district has lack of communication with parents, unless you complain, complain, complain, which i have not received my kids report card in 2 yrs! They email our KIDS of important events and expect them to tell us, when they dont. According to school, parents should be following things on powerschool, which never works and is never up to date. Most of the teachers are rude and inconsiderate and only look out for themselves. The ipad program was not handled properly at all in my opinion and all it enabled our kids to do is play video games when supposed to be doing work. The amount of money the school charges for field trips, ipad insurance and numerous other things thru out the year is RIDICULOUS. Most of the secretaries are rude and barely answer the phone. There is always an issue with this school. Always. Nothing ever goes smoothly. They never want to hear anyones opinion, they act like they dont have time to hear the parents whenever there is an issue. Even when the school is in the "wrong" they never assume responsibility and everything is the parents fault....they do no wrong. I seriously could go on but i will end it there. I regret moving my kids here on a daily basis and wish i could move.

Unlike the previous poster I believe Almont schools, is one of the best in the area. If the previous poster had done some research they would have seen steps have been taken to increase enrollment and Almont has continued to see improved test scores. My kids have been blessed to have such a great school with such caring and compassionate staff. The school district is not bankrupt or even close to it. So whoever stated that ridiculous post is obviously clueless. The school recently started an IPAD initiative handing out IPADS to 5th-12th grade. The school has continued to push the technology and utilize the newest technology in the classroom. For a smaller school district this school has demonstrated they have the right priorities to improve academics. Almont has a proud history of academic success and athletic success. GO RAIDERS!!!

Terrible school system! I have never seen such Union oriented and selfish teachers. When the community or supervisors ask something of a teacher, it's always "not in my contract". Teachers are rude to parents and do post progress reports like they should. Teachers are always "out sick". Teachers never follow through on their promises - always "not in my contract". The school is near bankrupt, has one semi-abandoned building (which they plan to fill with preschoolers), is facing half a million dollars in repair for botched construction, and I lose track of how many fund raisers they must have, regardless of the outrageous taxes we pay. The kids are great. It's a shame they have so many deadwood teachers, lame coaches (not all coaches though), and useless Board and Administration. I don't know why - I suspect the Administration never expects anything from the teachers and staff. They're comfortable with a 2nd rate, blah, small town school I guess. If my house wasn't so underwater, I'd put it up for sale and move to another district. There are much better schools systems. Was two stars, forgot about the fun down semi-abandoned school. reducing to 1 star.

Almont was great place for my duaghter who graduated in 2009. She trandferred from a larger district and we found the administration,staff and students to be extremely welcoming. Her school counselor went above and beyond to make an easy transition. Almont was a great place! We should have transferred her earlier!

Almont schools have a real feeling of community and support. Steve Zott, the superintendent, can be seen at practically every event, and is always willing to listen and be involved. Despite Almont's small size and somewhat limited class offerings, I feel that my daughter, who graduated from AHS, was well prepared for college. In fact, she received numerous scholarships, and is now excelling as a university freshman. My son is a sophomore and loves the school community. Many of the teachers are excellent; however, as with any school, there are some who are not so great. Overall, I like Almont schools very much.
