Principal Mrs.Z and staff have passion and care for all their students! Their love of their students and drive for education go beyond the classroom. And parents are always involved. This school is hard to beat!

I was impressed with the type of education my daughters received while in Adairsville. They were really upset when we moved to another county and had a hard time adjusting because the new schools were not nearly as challenging. One of my daughters went on to take the SAT as a 7th grader and scored in the top 10% of the students who took it. This is the college SAT. She said that Adairsville elementary teachers prepared her. I just hope my other 2 children receive the same type education that the older 2 did. (even though we are in another county now).
