Rochester Adams High School Reviews

The amount of clubs and activities at this school is amazing. There is a club for almost every topic, and if there isn't one a student is interested in, they can make one! Most students are extremely committed to the clubs they are in and many are involved in at least two clubs. Sometimes clubs even have dual meetings. For example, the German club and Spanish club holds a soccer game where foods from both cultures are available.
Review Your School
Rochester Adams prepares you for college far better than other high schools. Perhaps it was the advanced courses I took, but it was apparent talking to other students that I had an advantage. The teachers genuinely show an interest in their students. Every school has teachers that everyone despises, but at Rochester Adams, if you showed an interest in the class, there were no teachers that would turn down helping a student. I am thankful for the opportunities I had whether in clubs, sports, or academics. There is a large variety of courses available to students. It is incredibly easy to join an extra curricular activity as well, since all of them are incredibly inviting.
Adams high school is like one big family. Throughout the four years that I have been there, I have got to know so many wonderful people and so many amazing teachers. Each teacher showed how much their care about their students and how important education is for these kids. There are so many teachers at Adams High school that I am thankful for helping me rise and showing me new roads. If there is anything I could change, it would be to have be to get more counselors. There are so many students in the school, and there should be so many more counselors to help students. the six or so counselors have so many responsibilities with so many students, it would be only fair to get more help.
