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 will hold it's next parent meeting in May or June.

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

  • This week's topic (April 20th)  How will John Adams measure academic success?  John Adams High School will be a data driven school, and to that end, will offer formal and informal assessments to measure student growth in the areas of academic success and college readiness.  With respect to formal measures, assessments required by the district and state will be administered, in addition to others that will help inform instruction, provide broad comparisons of student achievement and college readiness.  Data will be utilized to adjust curriculum, instructional strategies, and content delivery, and will help guide a particular student’s progression through AP classes.  Some of the formal assessments that will be used are CMAS, PARCC, COACT, MAP, ACT, and PSAT/NMSQT.  Additional informal assessments provided through the curriculum will also be utilized to track student achievement and goals.
