Educationally, this school is outstanding, but they lack an effective way to communicate with the parents. They have a website that is set up to disseminate all information from administration and teachers. The website is glitchy and apparently not maintained. I was always frustrated by not getting the information I needed as a parent. I addressed this with the school on numerous occasions.
Ashley Hall is a fabulous school. There is strong parent, student & community involvement. The teachers are top notch. My daughter loves going everyday. She is enthusiastic about learning!
Ashley Hall offers girls a unique opportunity to learn, excel and explore in an integrated educational experience. The history, traditions (new & old), facilities and overall campus foster a special overall environment that encourages girls to challenge themselves while having fun learning. Girls become leaders at this school. Possunt Quae Volunt.
Ashley Hall prepares girls to enter the world as prepared, smart and well rounded young women.
I love AH because it really seems to teach each child individually and make sure that everyone is learning what is expected and appropriate for their grade level and then they take everything to the next level.
Desire of faculty to see students succeed, become well-rounded, self-confident individuals, and give back to the community. Excellent student to teacher ratio. Variety of curriculum and insight into unique ways to teach.
I can only echo preceeding comments: outstanding school with an extremely warm nurturing environment.
OMG! I used to go to this school. It was great, the people are friendly, and campus is BEAUTIFUL! Sadly, I moved.
This school is wonderful! I am currently a student there. The faculty/staff and students are very friendly! I would recommend any girl to go to this school!
I came here 2 years ago and I have some of the best friends ever! The education I get here can never compare with other schools.
Ashley Hall has helped outh daughter progress years in just 3 months! Our daughter would not even say her name, much less write it in Prek 3. She is so confident and happy now. It shows that the teachers and staff are fully empowered to help their students for every need with a rich history of experience with children.
After having attended various public schools across the Southeast and then moving to Charleston and attending Ashley Hall, I can assure you that the difference in the quality of education is phenomenal. Classes were very participatory-style, teachers were passionate about their subjects and their students, and everyone was so welcoming to me as a newcomer. It was much less cliquey than any other school I've visited or attended. I was friends with everyone. Due to the success of Ashley Hall's AP classes, I've now graduated a semester early from one of the most prestigious liberal-arts colleges in the country.
Simply the best school for a girl growing up in Charleston. Worth every dime! Excellent teacher/student ratios. Challenging curriculum. Safe and nurturing environment that encourages these young women to excell at all they do. This school is known across the US as one of the best schools in SC. AH students rate high in both academics and sports. Period! Not every school can boast of being tops in almost every competition. Ashley Hall can!
Excellent academic environment. Instructor very helpful and push girls to perform. I feel there is still some issues with diversity and how minorties are perceived and placed for academic placement. My daughter was there 14+ years and she has grown each year. She had a good selection of colleges selection for her preparation. Sports wise there was consideral confict with coaching as far as support and advice from basketball coach relevant to clinics and AAU. Soccer coach is first rate and softball is area striveing to improve.
As a student at Ashley Hall, I am overall impressed. Going to school with all girls (grades 1-12 are just girls) has defenitely had an imact on how well I concentrate. The teacers care about you and everyone is very nice. Unlike other schools, everyone has at least one friend and no one is left out. I love it!
As a student of ashley hall, I am so thrilled to have been able to go there. The teachers genuinely care about the students and their success! it is great!
