My school is great because it's diversified and gives many opportunities for growth for the children. The PTO gets the parents involved and I like it because the meetings are at night which allows more parents to be involved than it would if the meetings were during the day. I would like it more if teachers were more aware of some learning disabilities. For example I heard dyslexia affects 1 out of 6 children but I don't think there are enough teachers that could recognize the symptoms. I think that teachers should have more knowledge in this area.

Adamsville School is one of the best schools in the district. The principal is amazing, a truly caring, dedicated and professional individual that is raising this school to limits I don't think anyone could have imagined. Under her leadership the school is now a Rewards School...who could ask for anything more than having their children attend a school who keeps rising to the top. The teachers/staff/related service providers and CST are great and always willing to go above and beyond. Children receive a fine education here and it is such a blessing that they also get to learn from each other and experience diversity which is what makes the world go round. Go Adamsville! Keep up the good work!

Just average. Way too many kids. Some teachers are excellent, some are not. My child attended Bradley Gradens before and comparing to Adamsville, BG is, in my opinion, much better. Maybe because BG's principal is more a teacher than a school's manager and she looks at each kids individually, maybe because they have wonderful staff in the offices.. Overall, my child felt much better in Bradley Gardens. Also, if you compare the results of the state tests, Adamsville is far behind Bradley Gardens. PTO is doing great job.

This is our second year at Adamsville, and I think it's a GREAT school! The teachers are great, the administration is professional and caring, and totally on top of things. The PTO is top notch! I KNOW my son is thriving in school because of his teachers and the staff, and the attention they paid to him when he needed extra help.

I am the parent of two children at Adamsville and just wanted to say how happy I am with this school. The parent/pto involvment is great, my children are very happy and the academics are very good. My only problem has been the lack of attention given to spelling. I feel like my fourth grader has a difficult time spelling simple words and I have heard the same thing from other parents in the Bridgewater school system.However, overall I am pleased with this school and would recommend it to anyone moving to this area,

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
