My daughter is in the 3rd grade; we just moved to Oregon at the start of this school year and I was nervous and hopeful for a good experience. My expectations were surpassed with Mrs. Selven (fair, smart, compassionate, organized, creative....) and the kindness and social awareness of her classmates. I am beyond grateful, every school year that is a happy and successful one is the greatest most lasting gift our kids will ever receive!
Before enrolling at Adams my son hated school due to severe bullying at his previous school. Thanks to Adams Elementary and the wonderful staff and kind children who attend, my son loves school again. We are forever grateful to Adams, it truly is a fantastic school.
My son is a kindergartener at Adams elementary. His Teacher is Mrs. Kasey. He loves going to school everyday because the staff is so caring and involved. My goal for my son this year was that he learned to read, and he is well on his way. His teacher e-mails us to let us know how he is doing and she is very attentive to each student. I think adams elementary is an excellent school.
The school has been very welcoming to us as this is our first year. The PTA Is very active as are parent volunteers. The library is fabulous. The principal is very involved and relates well with parents and children alike. I appreciate that they compost and foster an environmentally aware facility and staff. I think it is a nice blend of grassroots and green while also being crisp and structured.
Wouldn't recommend this school for special education students. Learning center staff never worked with my student as directed on his IEP, and actually falsified paperwork to make it appear they had. His teacher verified that no one from the Learning Center ever came into the classroom and no one ever took him out of the classroom to work with him. She said there was a pattern of that behavior at this school, yet she clearly wasn't going to do anything to stop it. Wasted year for my son, and who knows how many others. A shame.
Fabulous neighborhood school that provides opportunities to learn about sustainable living practices. Huge grant for solar panels, a School Garden Project and many years of composting! Situated so that most students are able to walk/bike to school. A racism-free zone.
Adams is a remarkable neighborhood school which is able to meet the educational needs of a wide variety of students. Children are recognized for their strengths and are given tools to succeed socially and academically.
Adams is what all schools in Eugene strive to be. Adams is diverse socio-economically and culturally. Adams consistently scores among the highest in the district in Math, Reading and Writing. My son loves school, students are kind to each other and proud of their school.
