    Teachers: I believe that the teachers at Ashland were of pretty good quality. Almost all the teachers pushed students to passing grades and went over all the material that they put on the tests. I enjoyed the experience there more then I did at the other two high schools I attended.

    Health & Safety: At Ashland High School, safety is a big deal. in any case of an intruder the office personnel come over the loud speaker amd give a constant update about the whereabouts of our school. each classroom is required a zone, so when a zone is clear and out of harms way students and faculty can leave the building safely.

    Extracurriculars: Extracurricular;ar activities extend from sports to clubs to study groups. depending upon the subject is the difference in commitment times. sports require a lot more time than our clubs. club participation is encouraged but not mandatory, unlike sports. most popular options are any of your big sports, including football, soft/baseball and basketball.administration support is great. if a students actively participates in and two sports through their high school career the student may be able to fill out a PE waver, excluding that student from having to take a gym class.
