Shadow Days

We encourage students to spend a day with us. It is a wonderful way to see what day-to-day life at Altamont is like by attending classes, eating lunch, and participating in school life with a current student.

Please contact Danielle Dodson at 205-445-1245 or ddodson@altamontschool.org for details and to schedule a day for your child to experience the Altamont difference firsthand.
