I was very happy with my academic preparation for college. The upper level math and science teachers were excellent! I was also able to take AP courses which were very helpful in applying to colleges.

Adel Desoto Minburn was an excellent high school to attend in the preparation for college. The teachers and staff went above and beyond to prepare their students for the college scene. The clubs offered have very heavy parent involvement as the school is in a small town, which offered a very unique setting which contributed to academic performance and success.
Adel DeSoto Minburn is a cozy but growing community with a supportive demeanor. The school district does well with overcoming obstacles thrown at them, but can be improved. In my opinion, our administration could use some work with making rules that make sense and include more benefits for the community as a whole.
