    My daughter has attended Adams K-1 - we loved our experience! Teachers are fantastic and meet the needs of students at all levels!

    The teacher and staff are kind and friendly. I feel my son is safe while he attends. I do wish they spent more energy teaching the quicker learners new material rather then so much repetition and regurgitation but then all public school are like that.

    We had a great experience at Adam's with our two kids who attended K-6th.

    Not good for special education. If you have a special needs kid go to another school.
