John Adams High School is a proposed Douglas County 9th through 12th grade charter school planning to open the fall 2015, which may be pushed back to the fall of 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.
The last few weeks has been an incredible time for John Adams High School…We had a packed house for our parent meeting at Parker Core Knowledge, and then less than a week later, we had a community meeting that was held by the Douglas County School District. We’d like to thank DCSD and everyone involved as well our volunteers for coming out and supporting John Adams.
Keep checking for updates about upcoming Volunteer committee meetings!
"It is not in the still calm of life, or the repose of a pacific station, that great characters are formed. The habits of a vigorous mind are formed in contending with difficulties. Great necessities call out great virtues. When a mind is raised, and animated by scenes that engage the heart, then those qualities which would otherwise lay dormant, wake into life and form the character of the hero and the statesman.” - John Adams
