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.
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.
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
Review Adams Central Junior/Senior High School
Adams Central is an amazing school to attend. There are multiple activities that you can participate in. The teachers are very willing to help students and there are many students who are able to tutor others. The atmosphere is amazing and fun.
I'd say that the health and security of my school is okay.
Mostly not applicable to college.
The kids get a great education
I enjoy playing high school sports, but what makes the school good is the intention to learn in the classroom.
I have enjoyed my time at this school. There are really a lot of opportunities for students especially considering it is a small school.
It's a better school than some, but not the best.
They really push academics and strive to make to kids learn. Getting them ready for college is a high priority.
It's good for the students who donate money to the school because they get many privileges and respect unlike students who might not make regular donations or who are simply unfavored.
Overall I really enjoyed going to Adams Central High school. It has been a great experience over the years and the only shool district that I have ever been apart of.
The administration at my high school is very stubborn. They don't like to consider changing policies or altering the handbook to make life easier for students, parents, or teachers.
Most if not all students are involved in extracurriculars offered at my high school. It is almost a mandatory thing if you want to meet new people and make friends. Everyone who participates in athletics is very involved and committed. Athletes take their sports seriously. Outside of athletics, there are a few clubs. This year a chess club was started, and I know of a few students that have found a new passion!
I've been a member of my high school's dance team for four years, and it has definitely made my high school experience. Most of my favorite memories from the years have been made along side my teammates. If I could go back and do it all over again, I would probably choose to go to a different school, just because of the lack of diversity and the fact that new ideas generally aren't tolerated.
This year security cameras got put in and the doors now automatically lock, making myself and other students feel a lot safer being in the building.
Review Adams Central Junior/Senior High School
I have loved nearly all of the teachers that I have had up to this point in my high school career. Yes, there have been a few that discourage new ideas, make it difficult to learn, etc. But overall, the teachers are pretty awesome.
There is a monthly "main course" that will be available throughout the month, a weekly choice that is available for the week, and then each day there is a third choice, which changes daily. It may seem like there is a wide variety of options, but there really isn't. The food tastes pretty good, but it gets pretty repetitive. This year there are snack foods available in the mornings, and I frequent the cafeteria often to pick up something that will help me make it to lunch.
The academic aspect of my high school is pretty great. The counselors do a good job of helping you to find a schedule that works best for you, and generally if you want to take a class, they will make it possible. Because my school is small, there isn't a large variety of classes available. For example, I've always wanted to take a French language class; however, at my high school, Spanish is the only language offered, with only one teacher available to teach every student that wants to learn it.
