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 does an excellent job preparing their students for college. After graduating from there last spring, I have moved on to a large university. Adams High School made the transition very easy. For example, I am excelling in my writing and math classes. The style of writing that was taught at Adams is exactly the kind that is imperative to be familiar with in college. The math teachers at Adams did a fantastic job teaching the curriculum and making time to meet with their students outside of class to make sure they understand the concepts. The teachers at Adams pride themselves in not just making sure that their students do well in their classes, but also do well in the world after they have moved on from high school. My experience with Rochester Adams High School was overall excellent and I am proud to say that I attended that school.
