The best part about Ashland High School is the teachers. Most teachers genuinely want their students to succeed, and they do everything they need to in order to ensure this. The science, math, and music departments are especially good. Throughout my four years in high school, I participated in many different sports and clubs, all with great coaches, teammates, advisors, and members. This enabled me to pursue various passions as well as discover new interests and meet new people. Without these opportunities, my time in high school would have been much different.

In terms of the school itself, Ashland prepared me well for college and the rest of my life. While I challenged myself with a more rigorous course load, I was always able to get help when needed. The classes that I took certainly aided me in terms of standardized testing, and my scores always reflected the hard work I put in and the quality instruction I received.
Overall, my experience at Ashlamd High School has been very positive. I have enjoyed participating in the various honors classes as well as clubs and other extracurricular activities. One unique thing that the high school offers is Latin; most public schools do not offer this language. I took Latin and was thrilled by the amazing teacher and the amount of knowledge I gained. Another thing that I love about Ashland High School is that the students and the community are both very engaged in the different athletic events. The stadium is always full at the Friday night football games! Though all these are compelling reasons for me to choose Ashland High School if I could "do it all over," I still believe that the teachers deserve the most credit. I know that some of the truly amazing teachers I have had I will remember for the rest of my life.
