Quincy Senior High School
#1 Best Public High Schools in Adams County
- Quincy School District No. 172, IL
- Rating 3.61 out of 5 249 reviews
Senior: The thing that l liked about QHS was all of the things that it had to offer. Throughout my four years at this school their was many opportunities that were accessible to me. This school excelled in providing extra curricular activities to kids. I think having opportunities outside of class work is important. It allows one to not focus on the stressful times of high school, but moreover the fun times. Having these opportunities in a school helps peers in the school to form strong bonds and make new friendships within the student body. The only thing that I would consider changing about this school is offering more ways to get students (specifically seniors) ready for college and their future. Although the staff helps guide students in the right direction, I feel as if their is some kids who need more resources about their future and what their career path looks like. Having a class meant for college preparatory and taking college trips might be something to consider.

Liberty High School
#2 Best Public High Schools in Adams County
- Liberty Community Unit School District No. 2, IL
- Rating 3.79 out of 5 34 reviews
Senior: The experience I have encountered throughout my entire school career has been not only astonishing, but fulfilling as well. Liberty High School has various astounding qualities. The school community is very close-knit, as we all travel the halls together, and every scholar is friends with one another. We are a truly a family at Liberty. I have grown up with my classmates and I know they will continue to be a part of my life as we grow as people. The academic features are extremely striking. The relationship between instructors and students is very strong, which enhances the level of education the students receive. I will truly miss walking the halls and speaking to my teachers on a daily basis.

Central High School
#3 Best Public High Schools in Adams County
- Central Community Unit School District No. 3, IL
- Rating 3.68 out of 5 19 reviews
Senior: My experience at Central High School was very good. Central High School has a good education system and they work a lot on helping all students to be more successful after high school. My guidance counselor has been very helpful in looking at different college options for my field. She has provided support to me the last four years to help set me up for success. The teachers here at Central really work hard on giving the students a fair and fun environment to grow in. Central High School also has invested in all new technology for better learning. Outside of my education, I have been able to grow personally and learn life lessons from being able to participate in several sports. I don't feel I would have had these same opportunities in a larger school district.

Seymour High School
#4 Best Public High Schools in Adams County
- Payson Community Unit School District No. 1, IL
- Rating 4.17 out of 5 6 reviews
Senior: Seymour High School is excellent. The teachers are friendly, I am challenged in most classes, and there are many ways to get involved. The only change I would wish to see is for all classes to be challenging. Unfortunately, the prerequisites and required classes could see some improvement. However, my higher level courses are challenging, and I really do love this school!

Unity High School
- Community Unit School District No. 4, IL
- Rating 3.62 out of 5 66 reviews
Alum: While attending Unity High School, there were many resources that were provided to students for college prep, and assistance with classes that were being taught. With being a smaller school, there were obviously less options on what you can be involved in but for the things that were available, there was a lot of involvement.
