I thought this has actually been a good school, at least for my kids. My older son who went here is an honors student at LZHS, and my daughter is a straight A student at MSS. They obviously did something right.

Sarah Adams is a declining school. It has large class size and little support. The principal is insincere, inconsistent and incompetent. Morale with the teachers is terrible. It is a low performing school; people are transferring out quickly. I pulled my kids and put them in private school; their ...  Read more

Sarah Adams is led by a principal who honestly is not a strong leader. I have met with her with my concerns and she politely listened and smiled . My concerns about my child were heard but no action was taken. No follow up with me at all.

I've put two kids though this school. If you have a child that conforms to the traditional model of elementary school, and who can just get work done independently, then it's fine.

Our son is midway through second grade and we have had an exceptionally positive experience with Sarah Adams. Our son's reading and writing skills have improved dramtically and he has school pride. His first and second grade teachers have been spectacular.

Things have certainly changed at Sarah Adams since the new principal has taken over, it's taken a few years for the results to be evident but here they are. Declining ratings, declining parent involvement, all because the principal has a poor attitude and doesn't care to find out how parents feel about ...  Read more

I agree that there should be a zero rating for this school! Aside from a small handful of "good" teachers, the remaining staff have poor, disrespectful attitudes towards both students and parents. They advocate parent involvement, but ignore questions or concerns. Academics are simply unacceptable - ...  Read more

I wish they had a zero stars for this school. The teacher my child had this past year had 0 interest in his learning and didn't even notify me with concerns that he was failing. It took me almost all year to get it corrected and the principal really could care less when approached with concerns. I'm ...  Read more
