Ashley Ridge is a newer high school. It has amazing academic programs, phenomenal teachers/ staff support, outstanding school spirit, and good diversity. ARHS has a range of academic programs: BioMedical program, Culinary Arts, Horticulture, Teacher Cadet, and many more. All of the classes given help us prepare for college, and the real world. Even though the school is newer, the teachers are fabulous! They care about the well-being of their students, and they work hard to help students achieve. The school is also well known for the school spirit distributed by the student body. School spirit even expands to the community, due to the school helping the community a lot. ARHS also has a good diversity. We have some international students that range from Germany to China. However, every school has a couple of downfalls. ARHS has dealt with a lot of construction on the highway it lays on. However, the good weighs out the bad. ARHS is an amazing school.

Ashley Ridge to me is lots of school spirit. Our school's administrators and faculty make it a duty to make sure every single student is always involved and doing something for the good of themselves and the school. School spirit is what we take pride in at Ashley Ridge(it's all about the cardinal and gold)! Besides school spirit, academics and education is also a priority. Teachers allow students opportunities to fix their grades and we have lots of ILT time to also get extra help if we need it. Students never go lacking.
Ashley Ridge is a great school! It brings great potential to all incoming kids who want to go somewhere and if you work for it the teachers and everyone there will help you get right there. They are passionate about getting the students to where they want to be in life whether its college, military or work force.
