Adams Middle School Reviews
Adams middle school, (AMS) is slowly becoming a better learning environment for students like me. Overall the teachers and students are nice and intelligent. The sixth graders are slowly introduced to changing teachers for different subjects and they can always go to a counseler for help. Adams is not a big or intimidating school, we may seem creepy and cooky, but we are all a big family. (Just like the Adams family!) There are many fun electives to take such as drama, art, spanish, eagle basics, band, french, technology, and video production. There arent any real bullies at this school so it is vey safe. Also, the school has many events to keep it exciting like dances and the annual Writer's Conference. This school definitly does not have 825 students though! The most it could have is about 300, the school really isn't big. I also know for a fact that we don't have 21 students per class, (we have more!). Other than a few small flaws I rate Adams a 4 out of 5 and I enjoy it there.
If you are new to this school then please give it a chance because at first it might seem like a strange and dumb place but it grows on you after a while... It took me a year!
