ADM High School Earns National Recognition Minimize

U.S. News & World Report released their annual high school rankings on May 12th, and ADM High School again received recognition as one of the best high schools in the state of Iowa and the nation.  ADM High School is ranked as the 13th best high school out of 340 high schools statewide, and is also ranked #2,095 out of 30,000 high schools nationwide.  ADM is one of only three smaller high schools to be ranked among the top 15.  ADM High School’s enrollment of 481 is the third smallest among this group; the average enrollment of schools in the top 15 is 1,433. 

The U.S. News rankings are based upon a three-stage process.  In the first stage, researchers looked at student performance data on standardized assessments, while the second stage focuses on effectiveness in providing services for the student body.  The third stage focuses on college readiness, with particular emphasis on participation in and performance on Advanced Placement (AP) exams.  ADM High School has consistently performed well above state averages in each of these areas. 

“I am so proud of the work that our teachers do to get students prepared for college and careers,” says high school principal Lee Griebel.  “The real work focuses on the students every day, in every class, but at times it is nice to see that the efforts of our staff have been noticed outside of ADM.”

 ADM Teacher Leadership and Compensation Grant Approved for 2016-17 Minimize
On December 19, we received confirmation that the ADM Teacher Leadership and Compensation grant application was approved by the Department of Education for implementation in the 2016-17 school year. This means our ten-part application met the "cut score" for approval - our plan was deemed a quality one. Second, this means we will have additional time to plan for all the steps necessary to launch successfully. The ADM Planning Committee comprised of teachers, parents, and administrators did an excellent job of developing this "system" of teacher leadership to meet the needs of our district.
