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 (May 18th)  How will John Adams High School (JAHS) serve students with special needs?
     
    Students with special needs will be welcome at John Adams High school.    Special education teachers, psychologists, and professionals who provide supportive services such as speech, physical and occupational therapy will be employed.  All federal and district mandates regarding special education will be followed.  The response to intervention three-tiered model will be in place at John Adams, as will an eligibility team to identify and evaluate students for special education services.  Students’ IEP and 504 plans will be implemented, and assistive technology and individual transition services will be provided as needed.  Services will be provided in the least restrictive environment, including the regular classroom, resource room, small groups, and 1:1 situations as deemed to be best for each student so that they have free and appropriate access to their education.  All students at John Adams High School, including those with special needs, can expect to be valued, respected, and included in every aspect of life at the school.
