Welcome to John Adams High School


The John Adams High School charter application has been approved by the Douglas County Board of Directors!! We are excited to be moving forward with our Fall 2016 opening date. JAHS needs your help! Look for upcoming volunteer committees so you can become a Founding Family in this unique, once in a lifetime opportunity of this incredible new school!

A planned 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.
