As a senior at Ash Grove, I have been through many changes and advancements. I have attended this district since Kindergarten! Throughout the last few years, I have seen many opportunities that they school has started to offer to get us prepared for college. I love that! I know that I am going to be more prepared for college because of the teachers who have pushed for a classroom that mocks colleges more. I love how small the school is, so you know everyone and everyone knows you. The teachers, for the most part, care personally about your education and your overall well being. Also, Ash Grove's sports program is pretty good! I have watched many teams throughout the years have successful seasons and programs being built up. I am blessed that I grew up in this small town with this tight-knit school district.

Ash Grove High School is a small school that has been struggling to maintain a positive school culture. Through recent events the past few years, the school's reputation has been hit hard. Throughout my experience at Ash Grove I was fortunate enough to make some of my closest friends, some that I even consider family. However, that is one of the only positive things that came from my high school experience. The environment at the school is in need of drastic change, and it is my sincere hope that it comes for the sake of the students and the staff that truly cares.
It is a small school which is good and bad in many ways. It is good because it has a family feel and the teachers really try and connect with each student. It is bad because it either hit or miss with the teachers. I had some of the best teachers Missouri has to offer and also the absoloute worse. Athletics is also a big deal so to gain friends, one must join one sport or another. The counselors are amazing at their job and really help students reach their goals and even help them realize and plan for even bigger goals. There are not many opportunities for gifted students. The Special Education program, however, is outstanding. I personally left content and not terribly scarred from my Jr. High/ High School experience.
