There is something very wrong with this school. The students are constantly bullying and disrespectful to teachers. The teachers are all fresh out of college. The administrative staff is rude. The teachers never have time for the students. Yes, there are a few diamonds in this rough of teachers, but my daughter feels completely consumed with drama here. Two students committed suicide in the last 5-6 years. The death (not the cause) of my daughter's friend was announced over the intercom. They had psychologists on campus for one day and then pretended nothing ever happened. There is something very wrong with this school!!

We have had great and not so great teachers at Adams. The school administration has been fantastic and very supportive with the issues that were brought to their attention. I'm very surprised at some of these negative reviews here because the principal always returned my phone calls and was more than happy to meet with me to help with an issue that we had with a teacher. Which turned out to be more of a misunderstanding and was resolved quickly after a meeting with the principal, teacher, my daughter and myself. My daughters main complaint has been about other student's behavior, name calling and bullying. I guess it's the age but she is looking forward to this being her last year there, even though I know she will miss quite a few of her teachers and staff.

I have a 7th grade student at this school. This has been the worst experience I've ever had with a school. Students unruly fights daily, teachers are over worked and frustrated some seems to be there for a paycheck, administrators lazy and rude!!! Not to mention the principle is never there or as they put it unavailable. I left a message for the AP Mr. Floyd he never returned my message.. Switching my son school ASAP he deserves better! reluctantly rated it an one should be a zero!!!

This school is a nightmare. I attended all three years and left in 2009. I graduated high school c/o 2013. Adams has some excellent teachers but the experience overall was miserable. I like to pretend it never happened. The classes were not challenging, and the students were just short of barbarians. Maybe that's just the age, but at this school, I felt like an animal, trapped in a cage with other animals of a more vicious breed, with the administration standing over the cage with the keys, smiling triumphantly at how well they're "disciplining" the unruly beasts.

I have went to Adams middle school for 3 years and i have to say that it is GREAT school. Although sometimes you might get caught up sometimes in fights and the huge crowd when going to classes, i feel that, in the classrooms, the teachers are always doing there best to help you and make you ADAMS STRONG.

I'm already thinking of switching my daughter over to another school for the 2013-2014 school year. My daughter is in the 7th grade with failing grades in math class since October of 2012, and her teacher Mrs. Fisherman doesnt know why she has grading her F's !! she has had my daughter for about 4mths and she dont know where my daughter stands. I spoke with her over the phone and couldnt give me a good answer that would convince me. Spoke to the school guidance counselor and she was just as lost as the teacher + trying to cover up for her mistakes. I left a vm message on the assistant pincipal's machine over a week ago and has never return my phone call back!!! I WOULD NEVER REOMMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANYONE. SAD BUT TRUE.

I am a parent of a 6th Grade Student soon 7th grader. The teachers & staff have an excellent rapport with the students & parents. The teachers really take teaching to a new level. I have never seen such a great group of teachers in one school. Her reading teacher has excellent skills that kept class interesting & taught her why it is so important to read well. Geography teacher made it an event & memorable. Math teacher taught her why she needs to do well in Math & under stand Pi. Language Arts inspired her to write. Science teacher really taught her scientific methods, procedures & organization that will get her thru college. Coach was a great role model, Chorus inspired her to sing. Homeroom teacher was able to connect & identify the needs of different students and guide them. They were all so nervous entering a new school. The Staff is great & care about the kids. They communicate with parents & really help the students. All I have ever seen is genuine concern for students. The Staff has to be the most organized team I have ever seen, Strong PTA & Principal. She went from an average student to Principals Honor Roll. She loves learning and has been inspired by all at Adams.

I am a parent of an 8th grader and also a 7th grader. I agree that the school has declined in its security and caring for the students. There have been so many times where I am left to wonder what are the qualifications now a days to be a teacher or faculty member.. They are never available to speak to anyone, constantly harassing the children (this I've witnessed) and always unprofessional and non-caring. I hope to pull my 7th grader out of this horrific school for the 2012-13 year because i don't know how much more I can take of this. People need to start being evaluated and fired due to performance. I really think that a lot of the administration lack a general "common sense" which I now realize from dealing with teachers and staff at Adams Middle School in Tampa, is NOT so COMMON anymore. Especially, When you have a teacher suing a child because she was accidentally struck while breaking up a fight , a red flag should go up!

I attend Adams, and its my second year. And it is a terrible school! I get suspended for asking questions, but i also like it because i have many friends. But, On the other hand the teachers don't care about us students especially the MATH and SCIENCE teachers that teach HIGH SCHOOL CREDIT CLASSES. And one of the Ap's Mrs. Wilton is very rude, and just has the worst attitude. If i could i would for sure go back to Bartels Middle Schhol!

I am a parent of a 6th grader and I am very disturbed by the amount of fighting that goes on at the school. My daughter says its everyday sometimes twice a day. The kids are afraid to go to the bathroom during the day because that is where the fights start. Since the principal left shortly after school started and we got a new principal, it has gone down hill. Not sure the school is what it was. It may help if the principal made himself more visible.

I have recently switched my child to Adams middle school and I can say it has been one of the best choices I have made as a parent.My child before went to a private school.I didn't just let my child switch school because of money issues but also becaue I found that my child hasn't really been happy.Now that we made the switch she has been more out there.Adams Middle School has an outstading faculty and amazing students and I would recommend your child going here!

Adams is a pretty good school compared to the other schools around Tampa. The princible and Assistant princibles are very strict and mean buisness but keep the school running smoothly. We are an A school and one of the best and I have enjoyed my time there alot!!! Im an 8th grader now so im gonna leave soon but i like it there alot. Some teachers that I think should be noticed: Mr.Baran Mr.Cody Mr. Martino Mrs. Seavy and Mrs. hall

Adams is a fantastic school! My 16-year old son went there, now my granddaughter is, with another entering next year. We have found that the great majority of the teachers are kind, considerate and very helpful. If the student is doing what they should be. My son was a member of the band and my granddaughter is involved in all activities including their choral programs. My son has some disabilities and the school was there for us any time we had a question or problem. The only problem was no one ever told us about the 504 Plan for children with problems No matter what problems we have encountered the principal, assistant principal and teachers have always had an 'open door' policy. The only problem that I have EVER had is with some of the office personnel. Schools, like any business, should make sure the people out front our friendly and helpful! Smile, be nice!

My child has a physical disability. These teachers/principal have been on top of things so that my child could be mainstreamed into the academic setting. His disability was not held against him unlike other schools he has attended. They are careing individuals with the child's best interest in mind for his academic success. I also am trhilled about the quality of safety they provide. Though the safety measures may take longer for you to take your child out of school early for a Dr/Dentist appt, the measures do ensure the safety of the children and I am greatful.

I don't like the fact that when I call the school to find out important information, like FCAT schedule or when tutoring will start back up, I get no help from anyone. All they tell me is the calendar hasn't been updated yet.
