I loved my time at Adams-Friendship High School. Although there may be a few things that could use improvement. I do believe that most courses offered do not do well preparing most of the students for college. In recent years, there have been a lot of new teachers and many retirements. It can be hard learning from people so new to the school, still finding their way and getting comfortable, but even then I can't think of a teacher that I did not enjoy having. I, also, felt as though all of my teachers truly cared as to how I was doing in my classes. They were constantly pushing for each individual to do better, which was a very good feeling to know that there are people that want you to succeed and excel. People that don't even necessarily have to!

As a student at Adams Friendship High School, my experience was wonderful. I had a very rare opportunity that most students don't get to experience now days. As my time spent in Adams-Friendship High I was able to connect with the wonderful teachers that were there every step of the way, if you showed effort. I was always able to find extra help if I was in need of it. There are only a couple of things I would like to see change at Adams-Friendship High School. I would like to see the the attendance rate become higher, meaning more kids actually attend their class, get to school on time and don't leave in the middle of the day and never come back. Adding to the changes I would like to see more respect towards teachers. Some students can be terribly disrespectful. Other than them slight issues Adams-Friendship is a wonderful learning school.
Adams Friendship High School is located in the poorest county of Wisconsin and we have a lack of funding due to that. The school makes due with what it has and is constantly trying to better the district with the limited resources at hand. We have many teachers that come and go due to this but there are some who have stayed and tried to make the school as good as they can. These teachers help students with whatever they are looking for. The students that go here are often disrespectful to staff and don't put forth their full effort nearly always. There is always room for improvement at schools, but Adams has far more improvements to be made than most. They have the chance to be a decent school and will continue working towards that goal with the limited options they have available to use.
