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 Rochester Adams High School
Rochester Adams is an excellent high school that prepares its students for success in post-high school endeavors. Many of my friends have gone on to high-ranking universities, such as University of Michigan. Furthermore, the environment is well-rounded, with people striving to achieve in sports, arts, and clubs, as well as the core academic curriculum. I hope Adams will continue its great legacy, diversify its student body, and improve the teaching staff.
In respect to education, Rochester Adams high school offers one of the best academic programs in the district. A variety of AP and honor classes are offered, allowing students to challenge themselves academically. The teachers who teach these courses are generally very knowledgeable in the course and are able to relay the information well to their students. The environment at Adams is very competitive and often stressful. Diversity does not exist at Adams.
