Rochester Adams High School is a great high school to attend, as long as you don't mind sleepless nights and stress-filled evenings. Even then, I enjoyed myself mulling over the teacher's vague instructions on a project I knew I was going to fail regardless of my blood, sweat, and tears. The food is delicious. I especially love the dried out hamburger buns filled with something that is definitely worse than what you could get at McDonald's. Yum. And the new attendance policy! I just love it. If you miss up to 3 days of school you don't have to take exams! This, of course, only benefits people without chronic illnesses who are able to attend school ninety eight percent of the time. As you can see, I absolutely adore this school! Such an honour to attend! Enjoy.

Overall great experience! I had wonderful teachers who were committed to my learning experience and college preparedness! The students were mostly good kids who were dedicated to succeeding. The administration for Rochester Community Schools is not great, but it did not drastically affect my time as a student. There was always a sense of community and strong school spirit. I would highly recommend involvement in our stellar clubs and sports teams.
Rochester Adams High School, is overall, an amazing high school. Everyone in the school is friendly, and visitors are immediately greeted by warmth. The diversity of the student body is exceptional, and it is extremely easy to find one’s place and make new friends since everyone is so welcoming. The staff at Adams are all wonderful people, and a student could not ask for any better professors to teach them. From my personal experience, the math department at Adams is by far the best. All the teachers know what they are doing, and it is challenging, yet doable. Despite all its greatness, I believe Admas is more focused on the athletics and the school spirit rather than academics. For example, I would prefer it if the school offered additional college prep classes, and did more SAT/ACT practices, or dedicated a class only to learning how to tackle standardized tests.
