Ashland High School Reviews

I have enjoyed many different things at my time at AHS. The community making me feel welcome as soon as I stepped into the building for the first time. The number of extracurriculars you can participate in, such as sports or clubs. The amount of friends and memories I have made at my time here is amazing to me. I never thought I would leave this place changed the way I did. And the number of things out of school like sports games, school dances, talent shows, the school play or musical, band concerts, anything to stay connected to the school life and the other students. If anything at AHS could change it should be student involvement! Students for some reason always feel scared to participate in things and end up regretting it afterward.

This school is dedicated to its students and wants the best for them in the future! We now have a therapy dog at our school named Huxley and he has made students so happy in the halls. There are electives for everyone at the school and it gives a great opportunity for students to expand their knowledge!
Ashland High School offered excellent schooling that actually prepared me for college. I felt as though the material challenged me and allowed me to gain skills that are necessary to do well in college. The atmosphere that the students are placed in wasn't ideal for learning, but those who wish to learn will succeed.
