    Overall Experience: My daughter has excelled at this school. Academically and in extracurricular activities. They have had inconsistent administrative support but the current principal will be able to bring out the best in the school. There are a handful of teachers that need to improve or leave and that will help determine the future of Ashley HS.

    Teachers: Ashley High School as some incredibly gifted educators. They also have a good number that only do the minimum. The new administration is working to change that mindset.
