Adrian High School Reviews

I was very involved in the clubs and other student ran organizations at my high school and felt that those helped make my high school experience. The faculty seemed to have a general concern for my school work and there were a few teachers would check on me personally to see how I was doing. The common core curriculum bothered me at times because it felt boring and impersonal. The teachers that I did have that didn't follow it exactly but instead focused on my learning experience and the quality of that content made me feel like I was reaching my greatest potential in public schools. It was classes like that that felt more individualized were the classes that prepared me for college classes where I dual enrolled. It also made me realize the gap between some of my glasses and how lenient they were compared to the real world of college. It made me think about some of my peers would college would come as a shock to them and how they would struggle and fail.

Adrian High School is a decent school. We're all about your education so if you want your child to learn at its best give them the choice to go to Adrian. So far my experience in Adrian has been good but some of the teachers are just horrible. What I would like to see a change at is the school lunch. The school lunch is horrible, they don't feed us enough. I feel that all students don't get enough and the school athletes suffer more because they need more carbs than given.
The teacher staff ranges from a huge variety. The school recently lost a huge number of teachers and are constantly bringing in new and younger staff. The new teachers try very hard to get students engaged and to learn their specific subject. Not all go above and beyond like others but those that do rarely succeed with the whole class. The students don't always feel completely motivated to work to their full potential because students often feel talked down to by teachers, ignored and sometimes even made fun of. Adrian Public School district tries their hardest to train and prepare their teachers with great teaching styles, knowledge in the students they will be dealing with and technology to reach all students. Some teacher take these opportunities into consideration but others stick with the things they were taught in college, many of which are outdated and no longer reach the students. Fair and consistent grading varies depending on the teacher. Some teachers decide to play favorites because the district doesn't notice, they just brush it off the be students failing because they don't put in the effort which is often the complete opposite.
