John Adams High School will largely follow the Douglas County School District conventional calendar. The conventional calendar is ideal for a school focused on having students take AP tests as it provides more time in the school year to prepare students for the AP tests.
Below is a proposed 2016-17 calendar for John Adams High School. This may change as the school evolves and prepares to open. The students will be enrolled for 169 days, exceeding the statutorily required 160 days. Assuming six and half contact hours per day, the students will be in school for 1099 contact hours exceeding the statutorily required 1056 contact hours for a secondary school student.
