Sports is the main idea at Ash Grove High, but that's not a bad thing at all. Students don't have much to do and this is a good option for them to have. Their are some amazing teacher's at Ash Grove High and some not so amazing teaches too. Overall it's a pretty nice place to grow up and to raise kids. Not to far from the city, just far enough to enjoy the quiet country life. I wish the FFA program would grow a bit bigger and get more parent involvement because agriculutre could be bigger out there, they have the resources. Some of the people have their noses stuck in the air, even some teachers and staff, that's a small town anywhere though. I would rate it as a 6 or 7 because they don't seem to actually care about the students and their educations that much.

Ash Grove is a very nice school to go to. The only problem is how old it is. They will not do anything major to it because it is a historic school. They need to somehow knock it down and build a new school. They waste so much area at their school. There are places that could be made into classrooms. Higher advanced classes would be nice to have but for the most part it isn't that bad

this school is great but could use some work like bigger halls, healthier food,and more parent involvement.

The academic programs are fine at Ash Grove. It would be nice if more foreign languages were added. However, for the most part, the teachers are very personable and work very hard to ensure success of all students. This is a must in our education systems today. Parent involvement is pretty strong - especially in the area of sports.
