On a June 2013 survey of Alma del Mar families, 99% of parents responded that they believe that Alma offers them opportunities to be involved in their scholar’s education. 98% of parents reported feeling welcome at Alma. Finally, 99% of parents surveyed said they would recommend Alma to other families – and they have! The majority of the families involved in our yearly lottery initially learned about Alma through the family of a currently enrolled scholar.
95% of parents report that, since starting at Alma, their scholar is more likely to do things to help other people. 94% of parents report that their scholar feels respected by his or her teacher and that their scholar believes that his or her teacher cares about him or her. Perhaps most exciting, 95% of parents report that their scholar is motivated to succeed.
“There is no division between families, staff and administration. We are all on the same page as far as what needs to be done in order for our scholars to succeed. This sets a great example for kids in the real world: We are one!”
“Everyone is here to make sure our scholars succeed. Everyone is held to the same standard. I like that they have smaller groups to either help those who need more help in class or for those who need something more challenging.”
