Welcome to ADM Schools! The communities of Adel, DeSoto and Minburn are home to the ADM Tigers — a high-performing school district where I am proud to serve as superintendent. It is my hope that you have an opportunity to visit the communities of ADM and see firsthand why so many find it such a great place to call home. Our district is growing quickly — both in student enrollment and in programs and opportunities for students.
The ADM School District is committed to providing the young people of our communities the best possible education for every student. We take our mission seriously — ensuring that ALL students learn at high levels. The key to our success is the quality of our teaching staff. Attracting and retaining the finest teachers possible is an on-going goal at ADM, for we know that the best way to improve achievement is to fill our classrooms with dedicated and talented teachers. We are so proud of our excellent teachers!
Our consistently high graduation rate, ACT composite scores, and Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress scores indicate that our students are successful and prepared for life after high school. ADM is also proud of our accomplishments in the fine arts, athletics and other extra- and co-curricular opportunities. Thank you for your support of our schools, and we hope you have a chance to visit us and see our commitment to providing a world-class education for all of our students. It is great to be a Tiger!
