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!
adams middle school is good school even though there are fights there are teachers that still take care of it and the teachers are very helpful. i am an 8th grade student and being in adams middle school for three years was a great opportunity for me to enjoy. GO WARRIORS!!!!!!!!
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'm a parent not very happy with Adams middle shool ,my son gets suspended every week, is anybody having the same problem in that shool?

Guidance counselor mrs. Berry very attentive to students and parents need encourages students to succeed
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 Middle School is awesome. The faculty and staff are outstanding. Ms Caraway has helped my daughter through some difficult problems in school, and she is a god given blessing! All of the teachers care deeply about the students they have, send your child to Adams
