John Adams High School is a proposed Douglas County 9th through 12th grade charter school planning to open in Fall 2016. The school is being designed as a high school that will continue the excellent education received from area charter elementary and middle schools. The goal is to develop a school that will accommodate a large high school student body at full capacity and provide the full range of high school extracurricular activities.

Please note that John Adams High School is still in its formative stages.  Our programs and goals are being refined.  As such, content on this web site will change. 

  • John Adams High School held it's last next parent informational meeting on January 28th at Northstar Academy in the gym at 6:30pm.

  • The charter application will be resubmitted on March 15th, 2015.  The Douglas County school District has 90 days to announce their decision.

  • Our next Parent Informational Meeting will be held in April or May.  Stay tuned for more information.
 
  • This week's topic (March 23rd)  Why John Adams?  Why are we naming our high school after John Adams? John Adams was a leading founding father and President of the United States.  His early works on republican government guided his work writing the Massachusetts Constitution, which influenced the United States Constitution.  He was an early and zealous advocate for independence; he assisted Thomas Jefferson writing the Declaration of Independence, and later negotiated peace with Great Britain.  He is noted for having nominated George Washington to be commander-in-chief of the revolutionary army and later for the nomination of John Marshall to be the first and highly influential Chief Justice of the United States. Yes, John Adams was a remarkable man.  But why name a high school after him? The easy answer, is why not?  But more to the point, he embodies much of what John Adams High School is all about: academics and character.  John Adams was well educated and he used his education to influence and shape his world into a better place. We want our students to be a responsible and dynamic citizen like our founding father, John Adams.  
 
 
  • We will be holding our first Life Skills & Character committee meeting on Tuesday, March 10th at 6:30pm at the Super Target in Lone Tree.  If you haven't signed up, and you are interested, then please show up and volunteer.   The Super Target is located at: 10001 Commons St, Lone Tree, CO 80124.   Keep checking for updates about upcoming Volunteer committee meetings!

"You will ever remember that all the end of study is to make you a good man and a useful citizen.” - John Adams
