Ashford High School Reviews
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.
My favorite thing about Ashford High School is the small town atmosphere. Teachers and students alike are very close and really know each other. They never hesitate to lend a helping hand where needed. The only thing I would change about Ashford High School is the academic opportunities offered. Presently, there is only one duel enrollment class offered and no AP classes. Spanish is also the only foreign language class offered and classes in the arts are limited.
