Adams High School Reviews
Rating 3.67 out of 5 263 reviews
As a ongoing senior for my fourth year at Adams High School, I enjoy and appreciate the diversity Adams shows and the effort of being a multiculture school. As a student there, we focus a lot on our academics and improving our learning skills each day while being apart of clubs and sports. My past three years at being at Adams I've played sports and became apart of a fellowship in a club and enhancing my goals as National Technical Honor Student. Adam amin priority is making sure their students succeed and being comfortable with their pathways. They even gives students the oppurtunity do hands on work in their career pathway. It has opened up many doors for students and also invited students to become future interns once they graduate high school. It is very warming to know that they could show much courage and generosity towards their students. To know that the administration has your back is a great feeling overall.
It was a very average high school. It was not the best but it was not the worst high school. Sports were not very prevalent at my high school. The football team was average and so was the basketball team. I went to a different high school sophomore year and it really opened my eyes up to all the different opportunities that could have been offered at Adams. At the high school I went to, they communicated to the students and gave us a chance to learn in a safe space. The diversity at Adams was average as well. It was a pretty diverse high school so there are not many complaints in that aspect.
John Adams is the more rigorous and diverse public high school in the Michiana area. Coming from a local private school, I was faced with many high school options, including Penn, La Lumiere, St. Joe, Marian, Culver, and others. However, I chose John Adams because of the IB program, which is a rigorous academic program that is recognized all over the world. The teachers are fantastic, and truly care about the students. They all know me by name, and they know about me as a person, even if I have never had their class before. I chose John Adams for the Science Research program, which is only offered at this school. In research, I have refined my skills with the scientific method, and learned how to compute difficult statistics problems as a sophomore. Now, as a junior, I feel prepared for college through the rigorous courses and teacher support that I have gained through this high school. However, I advise bringing your own lunch to school, as the cafeteria food is of very poor quality!
