ADAMS ELEMENTARY- A Safe Place to Learn

Student safety is the highest priority for Adams Elementary School. Aside from keeping students safe in a clean, organized, and secure environment, Adams is one of two pilot schools in N-MUSD to begin the OLWEUS Bullying Prevention Program (OBPP). OBPP is a school wide approach to preventing and responding to bullying. Through weekly classroom lessons in all grades, kindergarten through sixth, students learn how to prevent bullying first and respond if they witness bullying behavior. OBPP is research-based and addresses both direct and indirect forms of bullying.

Adams has adopted the following Anti-Bullying Rules:

  1. We will not bully others.
  2. We will try to help students who are bullied.
  3. We will try to include students who are left out.
  4. If we know somebody is being bullied, we will tell an adult at school and an adult at home.

NMUSD is a leader in educational innovation; delivering a rigorous, broad-based curriculum through exceptional, high-quality instruction supported by a team of dedicated educators and support staff.


Throughout the District’s rich 50 year history, it has strived to help students find their passion, purpose, and potential, to prepare them to venture into the future in careers, college and active citizenship. Whether through academics, arts, athletics or other interests, NMUSD has opportunities to match every student's talents and interest.


While much has changed in education throughout NMUSD’s 50 year history, the District takes pride in continually evolving and adapting to changing educational needs. NMUSD has exceptionally bright and forward-thinking students, teachers, staff and leadership team that remain committed to ensuring that students are well-prepared for future successes.
