    As a parent I am very pleased with the school. The preschool is one of the best. It really challenged the students and taught them great social skills. The staff from principal to custodian seem to have a genuine interest and concern for the students.

    After working as a volunteer at Adams for 3 months I have realized just how hard the staff works to create such an awesome environment to stimulate young learners. The staff not only works well together but also interact very well between the children. Students have a sense of safety and well-being while at school. Adams uses a variety of teaching methods including inquiry activities which engage students and promote learning at their own pace. Students are constantly challenged and engaged throughout the school year. I was very impressed with Adams Elementary School and would highly recommend this school to family and friends! A very positive experience for me.
