Welcome to John Adams High School!

An approved Douglas County 9th through 12th grade charter school. 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.

Student Ambassadors

WHAT ARE STUDENT AMBASSADORS?

Our student ambassadors are a group of incoming students who meet twice a month to brainstorm about ideas for school. They have been coming up with some great ideas that will shape JAHS. This group also gives incoming students a chance to get to know each other, easing some of the fears that can come with making the leap into high school.  To learn more click here!

John Adam's History

10 Things You May Not Know About John Adams

What's News!

Dear Parents,

We are currently negotiating with a handful of landowners for our school’s location.  Each of these sites is less than two miles from the intersection at Peoria and 470 in Englewood.  We have been advised not to announce more specific details until negotiations are complete, since it may disrupt our ability to secure the best deal for the school. Our broker is confident we’ll have a signed contract within the next 4 weeks.  While we had hoped these negotiations would be complete by now we wanted to assure you that we’re still on schedule to open next fall.  We don’t expect to break ground until early spring and our developer just built a large charter school in 157 days!

We know the school’s location is an important factor in deciding if your student will attend so we are also working on busing options, based on location and demand. The school is planning to subsidize a portion of the costs. We will keep you posted!
