|“||Greetings, new classmates!||”|
The "Alterna-History Class" is the History class Riley and Maya transfer into to avoid having Cory Matthews as their teacher during their first day of Eighth Grade at John Quincy Adams Middle School. Although (due to the impatience of the teacher for their antics of attempting to sit together) their stay is brief, the girls cannot help but notice that their new fellow students within the room seem eerily familiar. The class makes their appearance in the premiere episode of the second season, Girl Meets Gravity.
