ABOUT JOHN ADAMS HIGH SCHOOL
"KEEP RAISIN' THE BAR"
John Adams High School combines the best of what both large and small schools have to offer. As a large school, students get to choose from a broad array of Advanced Placement and College Now classes, as well as numerous electives in expanding technology, science, writing, art and music programs. We also offer more than thirty clubs and teams. Individualized attention and a sense of community are developed in each of our eight Small Learning Communities, led by directors and guidance couselors who work with the same group of students during their four years of high school.
