Established in 1965, Adelante High School was comprised of only 8 students and 1 instructor and occupied a single room of the Roseville City District's Atlantic Street School. The following year, Adelante moved to the Placer County Fairgrounds where the program grew steadily as the demand for alternative education grew. In 1980 with over 200 students and 10 teachers, Adelante moved back to it's birthplace, the Atlantic Street School, this time as the sole occupants.

The staff and students were largely responsible for the design and landscaping of the "new" campus. By 1990, growth and development of the program necessitated additional improvements and a multipurpose room and lab science classrooms were added to the campus. The program has steadily evolved in its capacity to meet the educational and personal needs of our students. We added a Library during the 2003 / 04 school year.
During the 2006-07 school year, long-awaited construction began and Adelante High School was transformed from a small school into a beautiful campus, complete with ampitheater, cafeteria, new classrooms and administration building, new parking lot, a new computer lab, and beautiful landscaping. The new campus debuted in August 2007.
During the 2008-09 school year, a new state of the art Science classroom and storage area was completed near the creek area. Adelante students are currently working on a ceramic mosaic mural which will be displayed on the side of the Art and Science buildings.
