Adams Central High School Reviews

55 reviews
All Categories
Our school is so small it is hard for there to be diversity and something for everyone to be apart of. We don't have a lot of clubs and the school doesn't let them meet during our student activity period, only after school, when a lot of students have to work or go to their sports/extracurricular activities. The teachers, however, really connect to the students as much as they can. They provide guidance and support. Recently a lot of support has been given to our activities, but we used to not get as much. A lot of funding for new classes have been cut. None of the new business classes were able to have new textbooks.
Review Adams Central High School
Everyone is supportive about whatever is going on. During the meetings with entire student body, they congratulate and cheer them on in their competitions. Also, the supporters are always at the athletic events. The school's FFA Chapter hosts a Young McDonald's Farm. There are over 600 people that come during the open house. Also there are over 1200 students preschool through Grade 2 that get to pet the animals and learn about where their food comes from. The football team holds pep rallies during the tourney season and it is always packed. There is barley any sitting room at any football, basketball, and baseball games. The community is very supportive and that is what makes Adams Central High School such an amazing place.
At Adams Central, there's not really much diversity, ethnical wise. We do have quite a few foreign exchanged students however. Many of the friend groups at AC aren't normally 100% accepting of everyone else because they've been an establish group for years so if someone new tries to come in, it's a little unsettling. I feel like most of the students at Adams Cebtral have the "you do you" attitude in which if you're happy with you then we're happy with you.
