Overall, my experience at Ashlamd High School has been very positive. I have enjoyed participating in the various honors classes as well as clubs and other extracurricular activities. One unique thing that the high school offers is Latin; most public schools do not offer this language. I took Latin and was thrilled by the amazing teacher and the amount of knowledge I gained. Another thing that I love about Ashland High School is that the students and the community are both very engaged in the different athletic events. The stadium is always full at the Friday night football games! Though all these are compelling reasons for me to choose Ashland High School if I could "do it all over," I still believe that the teachers deserve the most credit. I know that some of the truly amazing teachers I have had I will remember for the rest of my life.

Ashland High School is in a well-balanced and supportive community. I am currently a senior, and I am loving life. With the help of the school's guidance counselors, I was able to put in the work to free up my schedule for this year. Now I focus all my time and energy in the areas that I love. I am heavily involved in the Drama Club, and even more involved in the music department. I play two instruments in the school's orchestra, and I am student director of Ashland's Acapella Choir. I am a member of Ashland High School's National Honor Society chapter, which has helped me find volunteer opportunities (that I love, by the way) in the area. Many more clubs and programs are available at Ashland High School as well. It is not heaven on Earth, but no place with the words "high school" in it is. Ashland High School, however, is the best place with the words "high school" in it.

Like every high school, you can quote the Breakfast Club with there being the jock, the princess, the nerd, the basket case and the criminal. Everyone claims to be proud to be themselves yet strives to be who they are not. As far as the teachers go, there is the strict, the easy-going, the goof-ball, the sarcastic, the mother, and the demon from hell. Overall, the school offers impressive math, science, and English programs, a booming honors program, and a healthy variety of sports, and clubs. A few stand out things are that this school offers a Holocaust class created specially by our history teacher, and the growing in publicity Lunch Bunch created by two teachers/parents. Lunch Bunch is a group designed to entertain, create lasting friendships, eliminate bullying, and allow an overall accepting positive environment. I do not regret my time here and would choose Ashland High School again.
