    Overall Experience: I have had a great experience attending Ashley High School and if I could redo high school I would still pick the same school because of the teachers, students, and fun sports/after school activities.

    Overall Experience: I have very much enjoyed Ashley. It is high school, so not every step has been very great, but for the most part I have been extremely comfortable in my environment.

    Teachers: Most of the teachers are so incredibly kind and they are very good at their jobs. I have only had one teacher that was not very interested in being a teacher, but the circumstances were understandable. Overall, the teachers are wonderful with the students.

    Health & Safety: The heath and safety practices at Eugene Ashley High School are fairly good for the school. I think they adequately fit the circumstances at our school, meaning, if someone has drugs or any contraband on campus the school officials and security will almost always find it and stop it. We have a school nurse, although she doesn't do much other than hold medicine for students from their parents or give them ice if needed. overall, I feel safe at this school, we have had moments where I felt a little less safe than usual, but nothing of much concern.
