Located just north of downtown Denver lies the community of Commerce City most noted for its rich mix of cultures, heritage, history and traditions. The 33,000-resident community is served by the Adams 14 School District and caters to the historic neighborhoods in the community. It’s more than 7,500 students speak 24 languages and therefore it has a significant bilingual population.
As a community located in the beautiful Rocky Mountain area and just a short 15-minute drive to the heart of downtown Denver, the Adams 14 School District has all the conveniences of a metropolitan school district with the small town feel. Residents enjoy knowing their neighbors, sharing traditions with family and friends who’ve grown up together, and having bonds with the people who established the community’s history and hospitality.
The Adams 14 School District’s portion of Commerce City is home to the Colorado Rapids, the state’s professional soccer team which calls Dick’s Sporting Goods Stadium its home turf. Commerce City also lets wild animals roam free – at least it does within the Rocky Mountain National Arsenal Wildlife Refuge located adjacent to the Adams City High School grounds. And to add to its great outdoors amenities, Commerce City has plenty of room to enjoy the sunshine with about 300 acres of play areas and parks. The city also offers walkers 14 miles of walking trails. Senior citizens also enjoy the use of a robust senior center which is housed within the city’s 67,000-square-foot recreation center.
The district embraces equity to ensure diversity among students, staff and the entire community is celebrated as strengths in the organization. Adams 14’s culture is based on high expectations for all students and employees, combined with one that supports both academic and social growth for all students. We’re fully committed to inclusive excellence for all students and will inspire, educate and empower all students to succeed.
Our 13 schools offer choices to meet the diverse needs of students.
