Adams City High School (ACHS) has had its hard moments, but all four years i have went to this school it has been nothing but a home for me. We are family, even if there is fighting and intensity, every eagle is proud to be one. In ACHS pride is our biggest thing. All of Colorado either does not know out school, or we are seen as a terrible school. But one, we will be known, and two we are the best yet to come. The worst part of the school is the administration.We have never had a consistent admin to run the school. Every principal has quit or gotten a high position. however this will not stop anything. It is "all day at the A" ( head football coach's qoute) and together eagles will soar!

I graduated from Adams city high school this May 20, 2017. I know that it is a school in a turn around but it has many things to offer. Students make out of it what they want, I saw many students that didn't care about school, but I also saw many others that's where involved and had excellent grades. Five of my graduating class members received the Daniells scholarship, but there where also many other scholarships.
As years go by there are More students attending college, the only thing Adams City would need to better is parent involvement. Informing the parents so they can help their students graduate not only high school, but college as well.
Adams City is a great school! The teachers really connect well with students and go out of their way to help their students be successful and understand the subject. I think the administration needs work. They are firing and removing amazing teachers and do not have a consistent principle for the high school I've had over 5 principles in my 4 years of being there.
