Commitment to Equity

Alma del Mar strives to be an anti-racist institution. We seek to dismantle racist and white supremacist structures in pursuit of justice and racial equity. We will fight against racism when we encounter it both within and outside of our school community. We will actively work to ensure that all of our community members, including scholars, families, and staff, feel included, celebrated and empowered. By resisting racism and white supremacy, we will lay the foundation to challenge all forms of oppression.

Alma 8th Grade Scholars to host Community Civics Fair on April 10th

At the 8th Grade Community Civics Fair, we provide a platform for scholars to showcase their understanding of civics and their ideas for improving New Bedford. This event aims to encourage scholars to think critically about societal issues, the role of government in addressing these issues, and how they, as citizens, can contribute to solutions.
