Principal's Message

Dear Adams Families,


Welcome to Adams Middle School in the Redondo Beach Unified School District.  Our school has been recognized for its outstanding programs and academics by being named a California Gold Ribbon School among many other accolades including recognition by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. Adams Middle School is in the top tier of all middle schools in the state of California.


Our mission statement states that the parents, students, faculty and support staff at Adams Middle School are committed to the pursuit of excellence in all curricular endeavors as well as the cultivation of individual student abilities, fostering citizenship in a safe, healthy and supportive environment. At Adams we are more than just school—we are a community.  We work hard to create effective collaboration among staff, students, and families to offer more than any of us could individually.  For teachers, this includes coaches and co-teaching partnerships.  For families, this includes our incredible PTSA, who orchestrate an unbelievable amount of support ranging from running registration, to creating and implementing the Hands-on-Art program and so much more.  Another critical partner is the Redondo Beach Educational Foundation (RBEF), who annually funds over a million dollars in programs and staff that impact every RBUSD student.  Learn more at http://rbef.org/.


Above all, we are dedicated to students finding success—which we know means different things for different people—but must always at least include feeling valued and respected.  We thank you for your support and partnership in this goal, and together we will continue to build the legacy of Adams through the success of our students.


As a lifelong learner myself and an educator for over two decades, I believe in doing our best for students, so they can reach their greatest potential and become significant citizens in our world. I want students to come to a safe learning environment every day and be inspired to become critical thinkers and active members of our school and the greater community. I believe Adams’ success comes from the commitment of caring teachers and staff, supportive parents and community, outstanding curricular programs, and beautiful facilities. I believe in the power of collaboration and the importance of communication, so please know that I am only an email or phone call away.


I look forward to a successful and rewarding school year.


Tanaz Bruna, Ed.D.
