Alma Public School is located at the edge of the small community of Alma, in the township of Mapleton. The majority of our students live in the surrounding rural areas and are bussed to school each day; while the rest of our students live in Alma and can walk to and from school.We offer Full Day Kindergarten and classes up to grade 6. After grade 6 most students attend Elora PS. Our Our students with special needs are integrated in regular classes with resource withdrawal support.
Our school has been fortunate to have strong parental support and involvement. The Alma Optimists partner up with us to provide extra services for our students. We were the first school in Ontario to receive Earth status and the second one in all of Canada. We achieved Earth II Status in the Spring of 2002. We are also in the process of becoming an Earth School for the third time.
