What I liked about Ashley High School was the diversity in students. Everyone was so different in terms of where they came from and their personalities. I love that I will be graduating with so many unique friends! I really think my school could improve the way they handle minor outbursts in class or joking around in the hallways. I understand that the staff wants to act professional and not tolerate bad behavior, but I have seen a teacher grab a kid out of the hallway and quite literally pull him to the office because they thought he threw an empty water bottle, when in fact he did not. I would like to see less profiling, and more talking and understanding.

I have attended Eugene Ashley High School for all 4 years. I truly can not complain about this school. The teachers are great and are always there to help the students out. The school have several after school clubs and programs giving students a chance to fine what they love and the group of people the can hang out with. The teachers and SRO's(school resource officers) do everything they can to keep the school and kids safe. I am a athlete, I play lacrosse and not only my lacrosse coach but all the other coaches push us to do our best and to have fun while we are practicing and playing the sport.I am overall pleased with my 4 years I have been attending and would not wish I would have went to any other school!
Eugene Ashley High School is a fantastic school! With many resources, great teachers and many extra-curricular activities, the school is top notch. Academically the school is above average but the teachers are very well educated and qualified for their jobs. These are just a few reasons as to why Eugene Ashley High School is a very strong school.
