I love my school genuinely it’s great to be there and enjoy the country side feel of our school! It’s very welcoming to any new comers and it makes you feel at home! Our science and technology department is great, most of our faculty members are like second parents to us and that’s very great and reassuring. Being at Ashford is one of the fondest memories I will have of my teen life! Being there for most of my life I might be a little bias to the school, but it all comes with honesty to how I describe my great school! If anyone ever gets the chance to find themselves in Houston County Alabama visiting Ashford would be a great choice to make. I recommend it to any students moving from the north to the south and looking for a warming school with no cliques, or popularity contests. Being an Ashford Jacket is great! - Senior 2020

Ashford Highschool is a fairly clean and we'll kempt school and is recommended if you're interested in taking general classes in a generally nice environment. If you're interested in taking AP (Advanced Placement) classes then I'd suggest looking elsewhere. While this school offers an Honors Program it is unfortunately not very different than general classes aside from stricter deadlines for assignments and extra work to complete from the same level of difficulty in most subjects. There are a few honors core subjects that simply put you doing work of the general classes in the grade above you, but no higher than that and none of it goes towards college credit nor does honors placement provide additional help for students looking for extra merit to add to thier transcripts.
I have been a student at Ashford Junior High and High School for six years now and seem to be fairly familiar with the campus and how things work. I have watched as the administration worked to make the school a better environment for everyone around. The teachers here do their best to ensure you get the knowledge you need to be ready for college. With part of our school including older buildings, our campus is not a clean as we all would like it to be, however; the students could be the cause of some of the uncleanliness also. To make a difference, every student would have to be willing to put forth the effort. With the students cleaning up after themselves, much of the trash lying around could be eliminated.
