This school is wonderful educationally as well as for the arts. I wanted to comment on the review concerning the vice principal being rude. That rude vice principal has been fired. The new vice principal as of 2014 is wonderful. I've found the rest of the staff very pleasant for the last three years.

So far I'm liking the program. The entire office staff is rude including the vice principal. It's not a very pleasant experience having to visit. My child's teacher is really nice, so I'm glad about that.

My school is Ashley river creative arts it was the best school ever even though I'm moving on to a new school. But I loved that school they provide extracarricular activities to help you connect with the arts. It is an artistic public school where you are allowed to shine through your talent you can definitely learn something new there I assure you because they have field trips like Barrier Islamd and a trip to WASHINGTON DC! I'm sure everybody who gets enrolled there will surely love it I'm heading on to 6th grade but I cried when I left because I miss ARCAE so much (Ashley river creative arts) I miss my elementary school and I'm pretty sure everyone else would too!

The school is wonderful. The arts portion allows for so many extras, ballet, drams, Suzuki violin, etc. But they're also great academically. RECOMMEND--not your average 'public' school.

Ashley River provides every child with the challenges and opportunities to shine that they need to begin a life-long love of learning and human expression. It is rare to see such an enthusiastic and dedicated staff in a public school; such cooperation between students teachers staff and parents. I applaud loudly all the hard work, endless fundraising and scrambling the school family does to provide the students with a world class program at this South Carolina public school. Please help this project continue in this time of falling grant figures and limited personal funds. Setting an example of a community owned program that reaches these heights is so important to Charleston.

Teachers and administration at Ashley River Creative Arts provide a creative and run learning environment for students. The parents there are active both in the classrooms and through PTA activities and events. I have two children with very different learning styles who attend Ashley River. The teachers have worked with both my learning disabled child and my gifted child equally to help them achieve at their optimum levels. Every child deserves an education like this school provides!
