Posted August 4, 2005

Ashley school is a great school. My son attented a Catholic School before starting at Ashley on 3rd grade and I don't regret making that decision at all. He made new friends and loves the environment of the school at lot more than his old school. Ms. Tripp is a good principal who will be missed. Overall the past two years my son has been there have been great. I will send my daughter there one way if still in the New Bedford area. MariaA

Both of my children have attended Ashley School since kindergarten. I wouldn't send them anywhere else in the city. Ms Tripp and her staff are the best!

I'm a former student of Ashley School, now at Voc Tech. I would say it was the best learing enviroment of my schooling career.The staff is great and the principal is excellent.It was a fun place for me to grow,learn,and make new friends.I loved everything about school,the staff made everthing so fun. I was very excited to send my younger sister there, I told her about all the things I learned and how much fun she was going to have the next few years of her life.Some day I would like to teach there.Also it would be my first to pick to send my children thier in the future.

About the tests

The grade 10 MCAS is a high school graduation requirement. The MCAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Massachusetts.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
