Adams Central Junior/Senior High School Reviews

The classes are fantastic, you really do learn a lot. The activities (including sports) are competitive and character building. The only problem I have with Adams Central is the lack of diversity which in turn creates the other problem of students who feel entitled. It has been a hard time for me to find friends because many of the students are not mature, or are scared to be mature. It is a problem in many schools around the world, so it is easily fixable.

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.
As a senior at Adams Central I have found that it is overall a wonderful place to get an education if not for a few issues. I would honestly say that the school has a great sense of community and that the small class sizes help everybody have time to ask for help if they need it. The only mediocre aspects of the school at the lack luster food, a few questionable teachers, and occasional miscommunication between the administration and students.
