Before we switched our school to Alma we were using multiple programs to help our teachers with their record keeping responsibilities. We had one program for grading, another one for rosters, and yet another one for communication with parents. We even had an entirely different program to help generate grade reports and student schedules. None of them interfaced with each other, and our staff were often doing double and triple entries for each student. Since switching to Alma we have reduced the administrative burden on our teachers and office staff by over 50%. Alma has enabled our teachers to better utilize their office time, and freed up valuable opportunities for more one on one teaching time. This is a win-win for everyone involved in the education process. Thank you Alma!
Alma integrates our administrative processes into one, easy to use program that both parents and teachers love!
The financial/billing component is not as comprehensive as we need.
Alma is a game changer for this school receptionist! Alma was everything we needed in one!!
I love how easy it is to navigate through Alma. Doing attendance is quick and easy, using the robo attendance phone call to parents saves me so much time. Running reports is easy. Literally everything you need is at your fingertips!! Customer service is also amazing, they are polite, they respond quickly and resolve all issues.
I don’t have one single thing about Alma that I don’t like. It’s just so easy to use and convenient.
Glad we’re using Alma
Unlike other SIS’s, Alma actually looks and feels like it was made in the 2010’s. The system is solid, and has essentially every feature a smaller school like ours would want (and many more that we don’t need to use). The gradebook is excellent, and it’s easy to transfer classes and students from year-to-year. Their customer service has been great (we accidentally deleted multiple report cards in different places the other day and they quickly and helpfully solved our issue by restoring to a backup), and they are continually adding features and improving the platform. And the cost has been at least 50% less than quotes we were getting from major competitors. Many reasons to switch to Alma.
The latest transcripts update was helpful - there are still a couple of features we’d like on the transcripts front, but that’s mostly because our school has a unique curriculum. This is totally just a personal preference, but I’d also like to be able to search for classes in the search feature in addition to contacts.
