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!

 

JAHS Update!!!!!

 

Dear parents, students, and friends of John Adams High School,

 

We would like to give you a complete update on the status of JAHS. As many of you know, this fall was a busy and exciting time. We held more than a dozen information meetings and attended events across the south Denver metro area. We met and talked with many parents and students who have shown there is, without a doubt, continued interest in a stand-alone college preparatory charter high school in northern Douglas County. We organized a group of student ambassadors, whose vision and passion has inspired us and helped shape what we hope to deliver. In mid-November the Colorado Department of Education awarded JAHS a three-year, $645,000 grant with distinction. All of this was encouraging and kept us highly motivated!

At the same time, it was a challenging season, in particular the task of finding a location for JAHS. Over the course of several months we explored many location options, including both land and existing buildings. On a few occasions as we progressed through the search, we went through interest, hope, and effort only to see negotiations fall through. There are many factors why this happened, chief among them a robust real estate market. Ultimately, we were unable to secure a location in time to meet the deadlines of the Douglas County School District.

It is with heavy hearts that we inform you John Adams High School will not open in the fall of 2017. For all of us who believe in and support John Adams, this is disappointing. To our student ambassadors and their families, we wish you much success in whatever school you choose for next fall. We would like to remind you that the initial Douglas County Open Enrollment window does not close until Jan 5th and all applications received by DCSD during that time will be considered equally. Please visit their website for more information.

Moving forward, the conditions are favorable for us to forge ahead to a 2018 opening.  Because of that, after a brief respite during the holiday season, our plan as a board is to hit the ground running. Clearly, the top priorities remain finding a location and securing the enrollment numbers we will need. We also plan to seek an extension on the grant we were awarded so we will continue to be in a secure financial position. As we start to do all of that in January, we welcome you to help us make the dream of John Adams High School a reality. We cannot do this without your input and involvement so please feel free to email us if you’d like to take on a more active role.

 

We cannot thank you enough for your support, encouragement, and patience.

Sincerely,

 

Board of Directors
