I have greatly enjoyed almost all of the staff at Ashbrook High School. The worst thing about this school is simply a few of my fellow students because some of them are simply rude and disrespectful. However, as long as you are not placed in a regular level class then it becomes significantly more tolerable. Honestly, the only time I've had a bad experience with my classmates has been in a regular level class. In Honors level and above everything becomes just fine.

I really love Ashbrook and I'm proud to be a Greenwave. The teachers and administration staff are really helpful, if your trying to succeed. They're also very encouraging. School events such as, Hype/pep ralleys, football and basketball games, school pagents, and clubs are very fun.
What do I like about "The 'Brook"? Well let me tell you, Ashbrook is the best high school I could have ever gone to. Yeah, passing by when I was in middle school it didn't look appealing, but once I stepped inside I knew I could call it home. The teachers are nice, of course you have "those" teachers who in the students word "can't teach, teach to fast, or Why are they even a teacher" moments but overall they are great people. They make it there job to help you succeed weather it be passing their class or walking across that stage. Clubs and activities are interesting, and in a positive way. We finally have a debate club/team and many more unique clubs. The diversity at Ashbrook is unbelievable.
