I attended Adams Elementary and Mrs Morris was my teacher. She treated me with no kindness or respect. i was told to shut up many times and kept in the corner because I was from a northern state. i was not allowed to participate with the other school kids.

Adams is a good school, it can be great if more parents were to get involved. The teachers are more than willing to help in any way possible.
