    Teachers: Throughout my time at Ashley High School, I have met several extremely influential teachers. My outlook on school subjects and on certain aspects of life in general have changed. In fact, my Honors English II teacher has become not only my guidance toward all I can academically achieve but she has also been a person I can rely on to help me through difficult times. I cannot fathom where I would be without her generosity or words of wisdom.

    Academics: We have a wide range of honors and AP courses available. I am personally happy due to the fact I was selected to join my school's Honors Nursing Fundamentals program. In it, I am given the opportunity to study to become a CNA and given a testing date to earn my certification. So far, I am beyond prepared and am even participating in a facility to practice my skills!

    Administration & Policies: I am always able to find help when I look or at least a friendly face to point me in the right direction. I've been blessed to graduate from such a well kept facility. It's filled with both sports opportunities and club opportunities. I know and have met with all four guidance counselors and each greet me by name in the hallway. This is amazing considering there are 400 kids alone in the senior class!
