Ashland High School Reviews
Pretty typical suburb public school. I had a generally positive experience but I mean it's still high school so not that great haha. I loved most of my teachers.
Half of the teachers were great, the other half had no idea what they were doing. The ones who didn't know what they were doing taught the students nothing, making them ill-prepared in following years (especially in subjects like math where the material builds based on what you learned last).
I love Ashland High School but there is also things i do not love about it, I love the special education department in which i am in, I think that the teachers are really nice in here and they show support for every kid.
I enjoy Ashland High School because I enjoy the student teacher relationships that I see being built everyday. I also like the availability of teachers or other students that can help you when you need the extra support.
Bad Teachers! Wouldn't do again!
Don't take Chemistry with Ms. Sherman!!!
Teachers are overall great. And a most of the bad ones are getting fired. Your course work depends on what level classes you take but it's definitely manageable. AHS is pretty highly respected academically.
Mostly white middle class. Some bullying goes on definitely but you can go to guidance counselors, coaches, the GSA, or many other resources if you're being discriminated against. But overall students are accepting and pretty liberal.
The school nurse is really nice, only problem is that she's not always there. Lockdown procedures are efficient and well planned. There is definitely some bullying that goes on but guidance counselors are always there to help you out. Overall, very safe school.
Girls sports aren't really respected even though they're pretty good but there are tons of great clubs in all areas of interest and all clubs are free. Theater and Student Council are definitely the biggest groups.
AHS has a great culture that really wants kids to succeed. There are tons of opportunities to make your high school experience as pleasant as possible.
With a few exceptions, most teachers are wonderful.
There are many extra curricular activity options. Whether youre athletic or artistic, there is always an option for you
The school offers some interesting classes that you cant find elsewhere. We also have great afterschool programs
Some teachers are good and some are not. Some teachers really engage with students, are approachable and friendly, and are always there for help and open to ideas. On the flip side, some teachers seem like they could care less and are just there for the paycheck
Academically the school is great, how ever they aren't very big with activities and events as it is a small school. They have a lot of restrictions that I think are unreasonable even today that would prevent me from chosing to go back and do it again.
The teachers are very open to give help and want you to learn. They are all very intelligent and respectful to the students.
Your typical white dominated school. Somewhat cliquey in terms of friends, not really easy to just go up and sit with a different friend group. You make most of your new friends in class but most people have been friends since 1st grade since this is a very small town. Most students are involved with sports, not alot of people participate in clubs except STUCO. People are mostly accepting.
Most of the teachers are very knowledgeable. There's a nice degree of independence given to the students.
There should be less of a focus on technology and a much higher focus on trying to solve major problems, instead of devoting time to seeking out minor infractions.
