Overall, Ashdown High School is a great school to attend. Over my years at AHS, I have made many friends and had great teachers to help me become the student I am today. The entire staff is positive and encouraging. They truly push every student to be their best. At AHS there are many great clubs and activities to be apart of. As much as I am ready to graduate, I will truly miss my friends and teachers. Ashdown High School has gone above and beyond to prepare me for my future success and I will forever be thankful.

Ashdown is honestly like any other normal high school, nothing to special about it. I will say that being in a small town makes everyone pretty close and its like a big family. Ashdown High School has definitely improved this year. We recently just got a career coach to help us seniors be college ready and help us find good links, like this one to apply for scholarships and so much more. Most of our teachers here try to make sure were ready too and they're actually pretty cool, they help us with problems at school and at home, with no judgement. Overall Ashdown is a pretty decent school to go to and to make many memorable memories. I've went to school here all my life and so have my parents and I'm glad to share that experience with them and maybe I can do the same with my children.
Throughout my high school experience it was a fairly good one. Now, there would be some things I would change about it like the food and policies. Ever since covid hit it’s been pretty rough but we still manage to get through it. The teachers are nice and the type to get you ready for college. I enjoyed being a student at Ashdown.
