We have just transferred to this school from the Cobb County School District (East Cobb). I have to say that I have been very happy with this school. I have a 2nd grader and he is doing better academically than ever. His teacher and the entire administration has been wonderful to work with. I feel that they truly care about each and every child and embrace their differences. I am very happy with the community and APS.
My school is Ashford Park Elementary. I have had a child there for five years. She was screened in kindergarten and put in the gifted program, which is one of the best I have ever seen. I love that the kids get to go on field trips, we, as parents are hooked up online with the teachers and can communicate easily. Ashford Park School has a large and very active PTA community, with great support from local businesses as well. The volunteer spirit is strong and the grounds are almost exclusively cared for by parent volunteers. We have done many beautification projects so that it is a pleasure just to drive by the school. There are lots of great after school programs encouraging science, athletics, chess and others. The school is so popular that many parents have moved into the area, filling the school to capacity. I think the only improvement we might need is a bigger facility!
We have been at Ashford Park for 5 years and we now have two children who attend. It truly is an amazing school that has a strong foundation that is built upon a caring and compassionate Administration, hard working teachers who go above and beyond and last but not least very involved parents. The partnership that now exists between the Administration, teachers and parents is immeasurable.
APS is an amazing school and really enclosed in a great community. We have fought hard to stay in this district because of the vast improvements we've seen at the school in the last few years. Kudos to teachers, our new principal and parents who continue to support APS growth and improvement!
APS is a gem! We've been at the school for 3 years now and just love it. Tons of after school options for the kids, warm loving teachers who teach to the child, wonderfully involved parents and a Principal who is forward thinking, accessible and determined to take the school to the top. What else could a parent ask for?
I am the parent of a 3rd grade student. My child has had all A's since Kindergarten. The teachers are fabulous, and well prepared to teach. I am very happy with this school.
I have two children at Ashford Park Elementary and I have been extremely pleased with the education that both have received to date. Ashford Park is a great community school with rock solid leadership and high quality teachers.
We have a son finishing up first grade at Ashford Park and a daughter who will start in Kindergarten there next fall. We have been VERY pleased with the quality of education our son has received at APS so far. We have loved both of his teachers, both of whom care about him on a personal level but are not afraid to hold him accountable from both an educational and behavioral standpoint. He is clearly getting smarter, both inside and outside the classroom, and has a ton of great friends that he has made at the school. We have considered several of the private schools in the area, and still might for middle school, but at least through his elementary school years we are overjoyed to have found a fantastic place for our kids to learn and grow like Ashford Park.
Ashford Park School has seen a wonderful increase in test scores, parental participation, achievement awareness, and after school programming over the past 4 years. Many of my good friends are parents of my children's classmates. We have met through a mutual participation in many events/functions at the school. If I were grading the school, I would give it a 91% (great, but still some polishing to do),
Great teachers, great school and in a great neighborhood! We feel fortunate to be in one of the "good" schools in DCSS.
Been w/ Ashford Park for 5+ yrs. Our son started out in K and is now a 4th grader. Could have opted for a $15k/a private school. But why? I love the diversity,and all the teachers are on top of their game. Plus, he gets to experience all that life has to offer! No preselection by income, color, faith, language. Ashford has it all, and all the parents stand behind it!!!
Ashford Park is a wonderful community school. The teachers are caring (a few weeks into school, it seems as if every teacher knows every child's name in the hall, even those they don't teach), the parents are extemely involved (and we continue to see more and more involvement each year), and the students are learning so much. We feel fortunate to be in one of the "good" schools in DCSS.
We've had our children at APS for three years and are thrilled with our experience there! The level of parental involvement is amazing. The teachers truly care about the children. This year there are several new after school activities being offered which is wonderful and further enhances our children's learning experience. What a great school!
We are very pleased with our experience at Ashford Park School. We have been there for 1 yr and have thoroughly enjoyed the teachers, staff and PTA. The PTA is full of very involved parents who help to make the school "excellent". I am also very happy that the school requires uniforms which brings the children together and helps them to concentrate on school and not "who's wearing what". The community around Ashford Park also give generously and are applauded for this.
I am so happy my child is going to Ashford Park. The teachers and the staff are caring and loving. The kids are learning so much. I could not be happier! It is a very close knit community, with lots of parental involvement. I'm glad to be a part of it.
We moved our boys to Ashford Park three years ago from private school. I can only say that we wish we had made the move earlier. The quality of teachers and staff is phenomenal. It is a happy school with a friendly group of parents. What my children have learned since being there has amazed me. As you consider your options for schools, I encourage you to get over to Ashford Park Elementary and check it out.
We are thrilled with Ashford Park! We've watched the greatschools.org rating get higher each year and are happy about that, but what a rating cannot convey is the sense of community and support our children experience daily at Ashford Park. Teachers and staff are all so supportive and passionate about teaching our children. The PTA grows larger every year and is very involved at APS and also in the community. Wonderful Gifted program for high-achievers. Differentiated learning in every classroom means each child is taught at the level they need. Each student is either challenged or given extra help to make sure they are succeeding. We couldn't be happier with Ashford Park Elementary!
Our son attends Ashford Park School and we are impressed with the vigorous attention given to academics within the school. APS exceeds expectations in all areas and provides students with an amazing learning environment. It is evident that the faculty and staff have the student's best interest at heart. Parental involvement is amazing. The APS PTA, which is made up of parents, teachers, and community members, contributes endlessly to the school. As a former teacher with a Masters in Elementary Education, I believe APS will continue to give my son (first grade) and my daughter (pre-K class of 2010-2011) a tremendous, well rounded education.
We have three kids at Ashford Park and we are completely happy with the quality of teachers, approach to learning, and enrichment activities. Our 4th grader is in band, which is fantastic. Each child is getting the right amount of individual attention, small group learning, and large group time - so they're developing socially as well as academically. The students and teachers represent a wonderful diversity that is celebrated in the school's welcoming atmosphere. We love our school counselor, who fosters this warm environment and works with all the kids on character building. Parents are highly involved and we get great support from community groups and businesses! We wouldn't go anywhere else.
