Turner Ashby High School is located in a rural town and was a decent place for my high school education. The student body was primarily white but there were also a fraction of Mexican students, Kurdish students, and other nationalities represented. There were also a lot of rednecks. The learning environment differed by class and the culture of teaching was highly involved with students personally while an emphasis was placed on sports and extracurricular activities. The teacher turnover rate was high and many teachers have been fried and pursued legally on differing charges. I will leave it at that for the rating.

Teachers refuse to acknowledge the mental health crisis within their own walls claiming that it "Isn't their problem". Other than the blatant neglect from the teachers to the students, academics are average. Basic subjects such as Math, Science, English, and History are all offered and at various levels. The Rockingham County district also has access to a vocational school for students looking to study in trade.
TA is an awesome learning environment. Teachers actually care about you, not just hoping you pass their classes. I wish I could go back!
