School Reviews

I have been attending Ashley ridge for about 2 years now and I have heard of many fights that have happened. The school goes onto lockdown when there is a fight and the administration makes you feel safe to come to school after a fight. If there is a fight the administration and police break it up quickly. The teachers care about us and are always there to help us during lunch and most days after school. If you ever need someone to talk to about issues in your life the teachers are there and they don't judge you. The school provides many different things for everyone to do. There's different music, art, science, math, English, history, JROTC, and much more. I personally feel safe and loved at Ashley ridge. I would definitely say that this school is better than the rest of the DD2 schools.
