Awesome school! I am entering 7th grade this year and can't wait for school to start. I know it sounds strange but I became friends with some teachers and tons of new friends too. I came from a small countrey school with a class of 15 to a class of 200 and addapted the 2nd day! I am so glad I went to Adams, because everyone fits in, you meet tons of new great people ( including teachers ), and it's a great invironment inside and out. I would deffenatly send my child there!

Adams Middle School is a great school to put your child through. This is the school I go to. I am in my 8th grade year there and I am going to be sad to leave. It has been really fun and I have learned a lot from all the great teachers I have had.
