The extracurricular opportunities at Eugene Ashley High School are vast. We have multiple sports teams and clubs, multiple language clubs, many arts clubs, many community service clubs and organizations from around Wilmington that work with students from our school. Odds are, if you are interested in something, there will be a club for it and if there is not, you can start one! I always hear great things about the clubs and teams from people a part of them and also from outside sources such as the internet or our local news station. A majority of the clubs get an okay amount of support from administration but I think sometimes they are more focused on academics than extracurricular activities.

Academic wise with teachers I feel like I could've been helped more. I did indeed have a very hard English class, but that teacher was willing to work with me and believed that I was smarter than I thought. Something unique about this school is the Oceanography and Marine Science program. I was able to participate and be apart of the Ocean Science Quiz Bowl team. Also in this program I was able to take a trip to the Florida Keys! That has probably been my favorite experience besides playing Varsity Softball.

Through the years I have attended Ashley High School, I have come across an array of teaching styles. I have been privileged with some amazing teachers that bring the real world into their teaching, stay on top of grading, relay the material effectively, and are great teachers who go above and beyond what is asked of them. That being said, I have had a few teachers who, I found, misplaced work, fell behind on grading, showed favoritism, and did not help students to understand the material in the most effective manor. Overall, I believe the teachers and staff at Eugene Ashley High School do a good job.
