Adel-De Soto-Minburn High School was recently named the 7th best school in the state of Iowa, according to the US News and World Report.

"To be 7th out of all the high schools in Iowa is something we are very proud of, and it represents a great deal of hard work and focus at all levels in our district," Superintendent Greg Dufoe said. "There has been a focused effort to improve student achievement and to increase Advanced Placement course offerings at the high school the last four years."

The report listed A-D-M with a 14:1 student ratio, 27.5 college readiness (above Iowa average), 3.2 math proficiency (above Iowa average), and 3.1 in reading proficiency (above Iowa average).

The top five schools were John F. Kennedy High School, Decorah High School, Ames High School, Cedar Falls High School and Linn-Mar High School. Mid-Prairie High School was ranked 6th.
