Adams Central Junior/Senior High School Reviews

There were many things that I had loved about the school including the excurricular activities offered, as well as the ties within the community. Although, one thing I believe this school needs to work on is college readiness. I now attend an out-of-state university along with other classmates. There are many classes that I am now having to take because my high school did not provide them. My high school only offered four dual enrollment classes and did not allow us to travel to the community college campus to take other classes nor offered AP or IB classes. Meeting individuals that are my age and have their Associates degree made me realize how much my school did not offer in terms of college prepareness. This causes me to have to pay more for my education when they could have been provided to me at a lower cost. College debt is a major problem in America and offering more college level classes in high school could have helped many individuals.
Review Adams Central Junior/Senior High School
Adams Central has been a fantastic school for me in the way of providing opportunities. Through FBLA, Athletics, and NHS, I have been fairly involved throughout high school, which has helped me shape where I will be going in the future. The only criticism I could give would be the strictness. They prevent every student from expressing themselves and it may subdue some of the interesting personality traits that may be beneficial to some situations.
Adams Central overall is great and I recommend attending. The school is located roughly four miles out of town, which makes the school feel like its own little world. I can only speak highly of the music department, both vocal and instrumental. The science department seems to be down, in my opinion. There isn't much diversity within the school, but you can expect that from a decently sized Nebraska town. If I had the chance to go back and change something about the school, I wouldn't change a thing
