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.

I have attended Ashley Ridge all of my four years of high school and it has really grown on me. Over the years, as Summerville as expanded tremendously, AR has become an extremely diverse setting. We have great programs and clubs which makes us a family. Our teachers, coaches, and other staff is wonderful! They are also willingly to help students out. They care so much about you and always make you are on the right path to graduating. I have had an wonderful experience at Ashley Ridge. Let's go Swamp Foxes!
Good school I graduated from here May 2016. The faculty and teachers try to stay engaged with there students through learning, one thing I will say is I feel that some students are not ready for college, most people I graduated with had to take remedial classes once they got into the college. I feel as though some of the classes prepared me in some ways. The school always has the students participate in something such as spirit week and homecoming week, they are very serious about bullying and do not tolerate it at all. I will say there are fights but that's at any high school you go to, the problem is there are too many students in the cafeteria. If the school did not have so many students in the cafeteria there would be fewer fights, etc. All and all, Ashley Ridge is a good school.
