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. 

  • John Adams High School will hold the next parent informational meeting in October or November.

  • The charter application will be resubmitted in December.  The Douglas County school District has 70 days to announce their decision.

  • Our next Parent Informational Meeting will be held the third week of January (Either the 20th or 22nd).  Stay tuned for more information.
 
This week's topic (December 8th)  What courses will be offered at JAHS?  This week’s topic provides an overview of the course offerings that will be available at John Adams High School.  As you are probably already aware, the school’s mission is to prepare our students for college. In order to support our students in reaching the goal of being accepted into at least one college of their choice, John Adams High School is planning to offer the following courses: 
  • Prealgebra , Algebra I, Geometry , Algebra II, Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus, AP Statistics 
  • World Literature, British Literature, American Literature and Rhetoric, American Literature, AP Language and Composition, AP Literature and Composition 
  • Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth Science, AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Environmental Science, AP Physics 1 & 2, AP Physics C: Mechanics, AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism  
  • Human Geography, AP Human Geography, US Government, AP US Government, US History, AP US History, AP World History

(Some courses may not be available until the school is at full capacity. This list is subject to change at any time).  Year to year plans are currently being developed to track students from course to course toward completion of an AP course in the core subjects regardless of where they start. For instance, if a student has completed Saxon math, an established plan will be in place to guide the student toward either AP Calculus or AP Statistics. It is anticipated that students will take one AP course in three of the four core subjects: English, Math, Science, and Social Studies.  For more information on each of these courses including credit hours and detailed course descriptions, please see the course offering page on the John Adams High School website.   Students with ILPs, IEPs, and 504 plans will be accommodated.
