Adel DeSoto Minburn (ADM) High School Reviews
Throughout my last four years of High School, all of the staff has been working towards improvement of their teaching practices to better the learning for students. This improvement has shown dramatically! One of the greatest improvements is that the teachers offer special programs before and after school for many classes, as well as going the pace of the students who need extra assistance. Combined, the teachers make students feel appreciated, and it makes for a great learning environment. ADM High School has above and beyond the best staff in central Iowa.
ADM High School is known for its academics and extracurriculars. While sports are sometimes the most popular activities in High School in Iowa, Clubs, Fine Arts, and Academics are also a large part of our High School experience. As a student, you are no way limited to one activity; students are actually encouraged to do more than one extracurricular while still being academically successful. The support from the teachers and coaches is amazing, and has a lot to do with the success of all activities. ADM wide variety of clubs and sports makes it easy for "everyone" to be a part of "something"!
I changed schools before I began High School, and it was one of the best decisions my family had ever made. The curriculum that was given to me was harder than I was used to, but the teachers made learning at a higher standard very possible. In High School, I was involved in both sports and fine arts while working at a hometown bank, and my academics were very important to me. It was very easy to balance my busy schedule because of the amazing support of the activity leaders. Everything that I have learned and done in High School has prepared me for College, Graduate School, and the rest of my life. I would choose to go back to High School if I could because the experiences and memories were so great, I could do it all again!
