    I love Adams Elementary!!! As an educator myself I have high expectations for my children to achieve standards given by their school. Adams teachers display superior dedication towards their students. They exceed expectations and keep students and parents informed with daily weekly and monthly activities and events. Parents are involved with their children's academics success. I have admired Adams teachers staff and administration team for over ten years!!! From Mrs. Bell to Ms. Grant. Keep up the good work.

    Great teachers administration students ancillary staff and INVOLVED parents! FMS offers excellent extracurricular activities as well as special interest groups. You get out of this school exactly what you put into it and if you think that you can just drop your kid off and have them become a rocket scientist then FMS is not the school for you or your child! Education begins at home and because you run out of money for your high-"fulutting" private school and think you are going to dump anothers school problem child at FMS then you are bringing the school down!

    Best move I ever made was taking my son out of private and putting him at Adams. They have wonderful caring teachers and one of the best Principal and office staff.

    The teachers and staff are very committed to making sure parent are involved in every aspect of learning throughout the school year. Parents can gain points and awards and are acknowledged at PTA meetings. They also over workshops and parent groups that get together to work on improving any concerns other parents may have.
