I just attended bring a parent to school day a few weeks ago. I must say it was much better than the last time I was there. Students were loud and disrespectful toward teachers to the point where I called out some I knew their parents. Not this time. I was very impressed with the overall campus vibe. I have two kids there currently and have heard very little about bullying. One if my kids participates in the anti-bullying program they have. The principal is very accessible and I thought the teachers were great. My kids are both in the honors programs and it was not a surprise to see other parents of honors students being the primary ones who attended. You get out of your child's education what YOU put into it! RBUSD is getting better all the time!!

As a parent who has previously written a mediocre review of this school I would like to say that the school administration is taking the beginning steps to improve student safety on campus. They have initiated an anti-bullying a program called,"Speak Up and Be The Change", encouraging students to foster kindness and to help stop the bullying taking place on campus. The much needed new program not only involves students but also parents, teachers and school staff. Change take time, however it is nice to see a school with such great teachers and programs leading the way with such an important issue. I would like to thank the administration for comprehending the global student environment and pledging to make the necessary changes.

not a fair assessment. Do you want to know what kind of kids AMS has? AMS has some of the most kind, mature, and articulate students I have met. They are helpful whenever I am on campus to help out and have manners. Does this mean that I have been a parent volunteer at AMS for 3 years. So, you can say have seen a lot in the three years. After reading the reviews on this site, I am upset by the amount regarding bullying. In the 3 years, since Mr. Taranto and Mrs. Gotanda came on board, I have seen a positive effort to encourage students to make good behavior choices. To say that the administration does nothing is there are no bad eggs? Of course, not. There are a handful of kids who are not mature enough to make the right behavior choices. In regards to these individuals, those behaviors are dealt with in a timely manner. Good behaviors starts at home with good communication with your children. Teach our kids to speak up for each other. To help those that cannot help themselves. Empathy and good behavior starts at home. Most of Adams parents do this. The ones that don't are usually the most negatively vocal.

I'm happy to see the teachers, administrators and students taking a stand against bullying. My son knows that they've "got his back." Last year he was being bullied at lunch, a student who witnessed it anonymously reported the incident and my son was able to get his lunch period changed. The counselor even called me at work to let me know what had happened. This year, I've joined with other parents and school staff in helping to promote anti-bullying and we have started a "Speak Up and Be The Change" campaign. The principal and school administrators welcome parent involvement and we are even planning a special Parents' Night Screening of the documentary film BULLY. I'm honestly impressed with all that the school is doing to stop bullying behavior and foster kindness.

My son got bullied teachers said dont be a tattle tale. He got so bullied he is still in a depression. Administration gives NO consequences at all. SEND YOUR KID ONLY TO THIS SCHOOL ONLY IF YOUR CHILD WANTS TO GET BULLIED!

Some of the teachers are patient with my son in regard to his ADHD. They allow him to stand at times while others are sitting and I sure they ignore his outbursts when he doesn't wait his turn to be called on. I wish that more school teachers were or make it mandatory for teachers to take special Education courses. I do appreciate some of the teachers and their patience with my son. As for the school as I say it takes a village...so the school , parents participation and teachers. The school handles the situations the best they can with the tools they are given.

My child attends Adams Middle School and I love it!! Every time I visit I find the principal walking around and talking with the kids, making sure everyone is behaving as they should. Adams has a remarkable Administration, Teaching Staff and a principal that really cares about his students and the school. The academics and extracurricular programs are outstanding. I can t believe the complaints in some of these other posts. I find that most complainers are always the last ones that volunteer to help. I work full time and still make time to visit the campus and volunteer as much as possible. Adams is a Top Notch Middle School!

This is the best school on EARTH THIS SCHOOL DESERVES 1,000,000 dollars AND A AWARD FOR GOD SAKE NO BULLIES I LOVE IT and im a student here


Posted October 8, 2013

THE TEACHERS ARE TOP NOTCH! THE STAFF IS TOP NOTCH! WHAT THIS SCHOOL LACKS IS PARENT PARTICIPATION. THE TEACHERS CAN MAKE YOUR KID BOOK SMART, BUT THE MANNERS AND RESPECT COMES FROM THE PARENTS. BULLYING STARTS AT HOME. TALK TO YOUR KIDS AND STOP BULLYING THEM THEY WILL STOP BULLYING THEIR PEERS.

I don't know what values this school reinforces, but what happened to my child shouldn't happen to anyone. The kids are awful. I visited at lunch and I saw groups of kids tormenting other kids. When a kid passes any group of kids they get looked at like they had a disease. Would love this school to have a reality show...no one would believe the kids could be this mean. I am sending my child to a different school this year because it is so bad, The administration should be ashamed.

I attended Adams in 6th and 7th grade. This is an okay school. Most of the students there are nice once you get to know them, but there are some students that are wanna-bees and want to be popular. in 2012 the principal had to expell two kids that brought knives to school. If you decide to go to this school, be careful who you/your child is friends with.


Posted June 10, 2013

My child attended 2012-2013. Will NOT be attending next year. Bullies, Bullies, Bullies. The administration says all the correct things and do nothing. This school could benefit from a "How to be a good person" class rather than the anti-bulling rallies, that do nothing. My child went from a happy straight A (all 5 years) student to barely passing the school year and coming home crying everyday. I personally witnessed the abuse during open house. They went on a Catalina Trip. I asked a fellow parent how their child liked it and she said her daughter was tormented by fellow students the entire time. Seems "character building" is not taught nor reinforced.

My daughter goes to this school and truly wishes she did not. Not many options in this school district. Bullied from the get go. Principal did nothing. She gets straight A's but is miserable everyday. She doesn't eat lunch and runs to the library where she can be safe. I'm so disappointed with this administration. Intern counselors are useless.

My child attends AMS and I also volunteer there. The ratings are all over the place because the school serves a diverse populace and offers different programs. Thus, the ratings sound like they are for different schools because the kids may be experiencing different schools. AMS is one of the few schools in the area with separate classrooms for GATE and other high achieving kids. ~20% of the students are placed in the honors English and Social Studies and accelerated Math programs. If the child also participates in orchestra or band, then they will likely be clustered into a Science class that, though not designated honors, has very motivated fellow students. GATE enrichment is also provided after school, math team meets at lunch and robotics team is a class. In three years, I found that all of my child's teachers care and they range from ok to great. I would give them 4 stars on avg. If you have a GATE or high-achieving student, I would not hesitate to place them at AMS. I also think that the school works to prevent or head off bullying. If you work proactively and cooperatively with teachers and the counselor, they work very hard to monitor and prevent bullying.

The teachers are great, and try to give the students a strong academic base. Although, the students leave a lot to be desired. They just don't seem to care. My biggest problem occurred when my son became a victim of racial bullying and the administration did not take the matter seriously. I removed my son from Adams and placed him in private school.

I would not recommend this school at all. There's bullying, and the teachers are not so good with students.


Posted March 24, 2011

This school has a fantastic administrative staff but has room for improvement as far as the teachers are concerned. I would be cautions in enrolling my student at this school. Very few teachers are involved in the progress of the students. I have two children who attend this school and I would not recommend it.

It is a mixed bag for Adams middle school. Most l.a. area schools have become, out of necessity, adept at dealing with ESL (english as a second language) students. Adams speaks a decent game but delivers nothing. We were told of programs and help that did not exist-as we were deciding which school to place our english-challenged children into. There are a few outstanding teachers. Most that I have seen try hard to not expend too much energy on any student. If your child needs extra attention this is not the school for you. We had meetings to address our concerns and we were given lip service-actually lied to. Also, the students in the common areas pretty much run amok. I had an issue with a bully thug and my daughter, and nothing was done.

Hello. I used to attend this school, and I had the best years of my life here. The extracurricular activities and electives were awesome, (especially Drama), and the atmosphere was really pleasant. There wasn't much diversity, but everyone got along just fine, and there were hardly any fights. I was a bit upset at the 'ghetto' reputation it had; I've seen many bad schools, and this one did not deserve it's rep.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
