I was worried about the transition from Elementary to ALMS. I felt the school did a wonderful job of announcing and preparing my child for orientation. I appreciated that there is very little interaction between the grades as each grade level gets their own hall/ floor. I am a fairly proactive parent so I emailed teachers regularly, but I do think the "sharpies" team my child was on could have communicated better. Email is such a easy way for communication, I would have liked more emails from the teachers. If I did request a parent teacher conference, I was quickly accommodated by the staff.

My experience (7 years) with ALMS has been nothing but positive. The teachers and administrators were attentive and addressed any of my concerns, as a parent, right away. They also communicated effectively with my children at their level and with their unique personalities. I have had 3 children go through ALMS and the Salem City Schools from K-12. Kudos to a wonderful school system! Grateful parent.

Education wise the school seems all right thus far. The major problem is that the communication between parents and the school is non-existent. They solely rely on you googling them to get answers to any questions you might have. Or following them on facebook to get any information regarding the school. No school calendar was issued, no papers from the school telling you of upcoming activities, registration, even open house.

I go to this school, I am in seventh grade at ALMS. As you can see, we did by far better than the other schools. Great students and staff. I would like to thank Mr. Gallion for keeping us in line and working hard to prepare us for eighth grade, and our whole lives. Great job, ALMS. I love you.
