Student Board of Education

The Student Board of Education:
desires to provide students with the opportunity to participate in the policy making process and, at the same time, to experience the responsibilities of leadership. The Student Board is encouraged to offer suggestions and advice to the board in order to assist it in the decision-making process; to participate in the development and review of policies, regulations and procedures that affect the students of Adams 14. The final responsibility for all decisions, however, rests with the Board alone.
- To advise the Adams 14 Board of Education;

Student Council is a representative structure for students only, through which they can become involved in the affairs of Adams City High School, working in partnership with school management, staff and parents for the benefit of the school, students, and the community.
National Honor Society
The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921. Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in NHS activities. NHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
No Place For Hate
No Place for Hate was developed to organize schools to work together and develop projects that enhance the appreciation of diversity and foster harmony amongst diverse groups. The campaign empowers schools to promote respect for individual and group differences while challenging prejudice and bigotry. Every day we make choices. We can choose to let anti-Semitism, racism, and other forms of bigotry go unchallenged and potentially escalate, or we can choose to confront the bias that we see in our workplaces, homes, schools, and communities. As our world becomes smaller and our schools and communities more diverse, it is more critical than ever to actively build bridges to cross-cultural understanding and mutual respect.
Fifty elementary, middle, and high schools participated in the 2012-2013 No Place for Hate Initiative in Colorado. ADL reached over 47,000 students throughout Colorado, as these schools worked to enhance an appreciation of diversity by promoting respect for individual and group differences while challenging prejudice and bigotry.
The Anti-Defamation League is proud to continue its No Place For Hate® campaign in the Mountain States Region for a seventh year. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors — The Gay and Lesbian Fund for Colorado and The David and Laura Merage Foundation — this campaign continues to grow.
Interact is a club for youth ages 12-18 who want to connect with others in their community or school. Interact club members have fun while carrying out service projects and learning about the world. Interact clubs organize at least two service projects a year: one that benefits their community and one that encourages international understanding. While Interact clubs receive guidance from individual Rotary clubs, they govern and support themselves.
