Rochester Adams High School Reviews

Rochester Adams highly values academics while teaching students to problem solve, make relationships, and build good character. All teachers are friendly and open to help their students whenever needed. There is a wide variety of clubs/activities so there is something for every personality at Adams. School spirit and sports are also treasured at Adams. We take pride in our student section, which chooses a theme for each event and supports the teams. School spirit is also apparent in our unique school traditions, such as the yellow kilts that seniors wear for game days, our Olympic-style pep assemblies, and annual Charity Week. Safe guards in yellow uniforms ensure the safety of students as well as camera and automatic locking door systems. One issue that AHS should put more emphasis on is the stress and mental health issues students struggle with, but overall, Adams creates a positive atmosphere which provides students with an education that prepares them for a bright future.

This school has a great environment! The academic rigor and the school oriented culture can be overwhelming but being surrounded by like-minded, goal-oriented students similar to me creates a great atmosphere for learning. The teachers are all very helpful, and there is a multitude of extracurricular activities for everyone.
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.
