District Overview

Nestled in the historic community of Commerce City, Adams County School District 14 (Adams 14) is proud to serve its 6,000 students from 13 schools across the district. The 900 employees at Adams 14 work each day to provide an inclusive learning environment for all students and are committed to inspiring, educating, and empowering Adams 14 students to succeed.

Located just 15 minutes from the heart of downtown Denver, Adams 14  has all the conveniences of a metropolitan school district with a small-town feel. Residents know their neighbors, share traditions with family and friends, and enjoy the many amenities the city has to offer.

Commerce City is home to the Colorado Rapids, the state’s professional soccer team, which calls Dick’s Sporting Goods Park its home, and the city is home to several wild animals that roam the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, which lies adjacent to the Adams City High School grounds. Among these great outdoor amenities, Commerce City also offers 300 acres of play areas and parks, as well as 14 miles of walking trails. Senior citizens can enjoy the use of a robust senior center, which is housed within the city’s 67,000-square-foot recreation center.
