Adams County School District No. 14 Reviews

The Adams 14 disctrict to me has been good, but I think that the reason why is because I put in hard work. I advocate for myself, I’ve taken hard classes and joined a lot of clubs at my school. Even though my district has a bad idea of our learning and testing abilities I believe that not everyone in our school is dumb. Everyone notices the bad things going on in our school rather than the good but I do believe that we have talented and smart students in our school. We need the district to listen to us to give us the help that we really need in order to turn our school around.

For the most part, Adams 14 is not exceedingly bad. Most of the teachers at my school truly have a passion for teaching. They truly cared about their students and did everything in their power to help the students succeed. The teachers are not the problem with the district, the main problem comes with the administration. The administration at Adams 14 limits the students a lot. The main example being that students cannot go off campus to eat lunch. This wouldn't be a problem if this restriction was only imposed on underclassmen and students who had behavior, attendance, or academic problems. However, this rule is put on the entire student body. Even for those who have proven trustworthy. Another problem is that the district limits what events our school's student council can plan. Due to this, they cannot plan events and school pride and morale are low due to this. Overall the district teachers and not bad, the problem comes from a restrictive administration.
My experience at the Adams County district for the past three years has been a good one. Meeting certain teachers and people within the school has truly help me get to know the community better. I cannot say that every decision made by the head of staff is the most proper decision, not everyone, such as students and teachers fully agree with what the district says or the rules that they establish. Lately, things change with academic goals and certain guidelines, and that makes many students like me unhappy. In the end, the district does try to get everyone involved and keep people here as a close community.
