Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective

When they are actually there at school to teach (they misses a lot of days) I feel my daughter is learning. I do see at times where my child teacher would give her a perfect sticker on her work, she brings it home and I go over it and she visibly missed some problems. This incident happens more than once. I feel like she is rushed and the direction are not clearly explained. I know for a fact that her teacher is not a great communicator from volunteering in her classroom.

If I could rate this school a zero I would. This school does not care about children safety. Yes they have curbside pickup where they take your little ones in the car and never buckel there seatbelt. Most of their secretaries are rude especially the main one. They talk down to you, they give you unsolicited parental advise, no customer service at all. The assistant principal is rude an sarcastic. There is no communication when it comes down to your child progress in their education. The only communication you get is as a whole grade collectively. I get more notifications about school supplies and snacks I think I have bought supplies for 2 plus kids. PTA just takes your dues never contact you back even though you put yourself on the volunteer list. I don't believe these 4 star reviews for a moment, because of the behavior this administration portray I don't doubt they had some one discredit the review that has a one star. And what teacher you know that is actively working there is going to give this school a bad rating especially the school that is cutting you a check every month. Please think twice before you let your children go here.

Been an over all stressful and disappointing experience. They handle things really wrong. They don't tell parents things they should and much of the staff talks down to you. My son with ADD is singled out by his teacher often my other way beaten on at the play ground and they never called me and many times I've come home in complete tears. Will be happy when we move.

I have worked at other schools in the district and I am amazed at how Ashworth goes above and beyond to make each child successful. Until now, I have never been to a school where the principal and asst. principal are out front and greeting students in the morning and right back at it in the afternoon helping students get to their vehicles safely. They take the time and form relationships with students. They have a true desire to make the students feel special and important. The teachers work hard to have a family atmosphere. They take the time to teach each student at their level. Ashworth is truly an AMAZING school! So proud to call it my home.

Ashworth Elementary received the highest test scores possible on the Texas State Assessments for the 2014-2015 school year. We received 6 out 6 distinctions for math, reading, and science! The individualized teaching our students receive and the high quality of teachers make the difference for our school. Ashworth Elementary was the only elementary school in the DFW area to receive this honor. Here is some fun data regarding our teacher's retention rate: 0-5 years 33% 5-10 years 34% 10-19 years 33% Teachers, thank you for teaching at Ashworth!

I love Ashworth Elementary. I think it is the best school in Texas. I transferred my son here 4 years ago after discovering what a great school this was. My husband and I have discovered that the teachers go above and beyond what they are required to do in order for the kids to be successful. The kids love it here. Academics are stressed as well as making the learning environment fun. I am glad that I made the decision to transfer my son here. I would recommend this school to anyone with kids K-4 through 6th grade. They will be well prepared for junior high.

Ashworth is an Amazing school. I have 3 children and they all have received a remarkable education at Ashworth. My daughter currently attends the pull out dyslexia program that has been a tremendous help for her. Ms. Harris and all the staff at Ashworth really care about their students.

This is the best school in Arlington, Texas. The building is just brick and mortar. But the faculty, staff, kids, and everyone involved in this school are a family. The kids are the No. 1 concern. The people in this building go over and beyond everyday. It is the most positive, upbeat school in Arlington. Every resident and Arlington should strive to get their children in this school.

This school use to be top notch. I am not impressed with the education offered at this school anymore. Communication is lacking between teachers and parents. The atmosphere is so negative! Too many rude Teachers/staff in this school. It also seems like they can't keep teachers here. I keep looking for the revolving door this school must have put in! A few years ago the entire 3rd grade team left! This year, my child's teacher never return from winter break. Parents were never informed or given an explanation! My child hates going to school! If you want a good school,where you know your child will receive the best education available, look else where!

My Grandson is now in his 4th year at Ashworth Elementary and he seems to be happy with his teachers. I am very impressed with the Principal and Asst. Principal, they are good with the children and consider of the parents feelings and questions. Always eager to help with any situation. The PTA is one of the best I have worked with and I have worked with quite a few. The teachers and everyone at Ashworth make you feel welcome when going in the school.

As a family with 3 Children, We have been at Ashworth for around 13 years. I am very Pleased with the Administration and staff member's. At Ashworth, each child is recognized as an individual and taught on there own level. This is very important since all children are different and learn differently. The Administration and Staff go above and beyond what is expected of them. The PTA is incredible at this school!! However, We could use a lot more "Younger Grade Level" Parents to step in and help PTA as us "Older Grade Level" Parents move on to JR High. :-) If your looking for a school or community for your family, I would recommend Ashworth Elementary! This school offers a GT (gifted and Talented) program, Art, Music, Musicals,Orchestra, Band, Computer Club, Chess Club, Student Council and so much more!

I have been a parent and staff member for Ashworth Elementary. My daughter is now in college and fondly remembers her sixth grade teacher, Mrs. Fenoglio, as being one of her best teachers ever. Thanks to her, my daughter found confidence in her writing and will no doubt do something great with it in the future. As a staff member, I can attest to the fact that this is one of the hardest working group of teachers and PTA parents that anyone can hope to have. If you pass the building on the weekend or late in the evening, you will almost always see one or more cars in the parking lot. That's because the staff puts in the time to give every child the best outcome possible. The PTA is always trying to find ways to support the children and the staff. When parents work together with the staff and the student, great things happen! It's a joy to be around these kids, and I feel privileged to work with this group of people.

Having come from another district, I feel comfortable saying that all of teachers and staff members deeply care about the quality of education the students receive at Ashworth Elementary. We firmly believe that students are best served when all stakeholders are actively engaged in the learning process. Involved parents are essential for student success. As such, the teachers at Ashworth make it a priority to reach out to parents on a daily basis. Our PTA program is also phenomenal. I would like to take a moment to address concerns I have read regarding our dismissal process. Safety of our students is our number one priority. It is a herculean task to release close to 600 students at one time and ensure all of them are picked up in a safe manner. We have tried different approaches in the past and I would challenge any community member to find a more efficient method at another campus. If you have any questions or concerns, the campus administration team would enjoy hearing from you.

I feel extremely fortunate to work at Ashworth. We have a very dedicated and supportive leadership, which trickles down to enhance our hard-working staff. Our administrative leadership not only sets high standards, but they also roll up their sleeves and assist teachers when needed. In addition, they reach out to our community and deliver an unsurpassed A+ dismissal procedure. Our leadership and staff focus on success for our students...bottom line.

Father of three Ashworth students. I am very proud of this school in the manner of which they are preparing my kids to be successful. My oldest is now in Junior High, and is taking a full load of pre-AP classes. Ashworth did a great job in preparing him for that work load. The quality of education at Ashworth is second to none. The caring, nurturing attitude of its teachers is a reflection of the leadership at the school. The principal has done a great job at creating a loving atmosphere in which the development of successful students is priority. In my experience with other schools, It takes a gifted Principal to achieve a balance of love and control, and Ashworth has exactly that.

I give the school 4 stars because of the teachers, NOT because of the principal and vice principal. This school has outstanding, dedicated, caring teachers. They teach to the top of the class and care about the students as individuals, not just about test scores. The teachers I've experienced have made me feel welcome. There seems to be a lack of respect for the parents and teachers by the administration. It is not a cohesive team. The principal talks down to her teachers and parents. As a parent, I didn't like being yelled at and rushed when I picked my child up in the car pool. It made me nervous when several people were screaming, waving their arms, and telling me different things to do. If I were choosing a school based on the teachers, this would be my number one pick. If I were choosing based on the administration, it would be my last.

Teaching staff - above average - Exemplary because of parental involvement (PTA driven) and an excellent teaching staff Welcoming and fun -- not so much anymore - goodbye school dances and now no more Sneak a Peek -- I'm sure there is some logical reason behind this decision but I don't see how it benefits kids at ALL. What relieves first day jitters more than having informally met the teacher and knowing where you seat is. To the admin of this school --- please stop nixing all the things parents and students loved about Ashworth!!!!!!!!!

I am a former student of Ashworth Elementary school. I really enjoyed the years I spent in this amazing institution. I attended from 1999 to 2004. I loved all of my teachers. Mrs. Turner, Mrs. Harris, Mrs. White (Former teacher), Coach White and Coach Rose, and our music Instructor Mrs Keaton were just a few of the adults I had the pleasure of meeting and having instuct my classes during my time at Ashworth. All of our teachers were very dedicated. We put on numerous musical productions including The Music Man Jr. and Annie Jr. Mrs. Linderman helped shape this amazing school and its amazing students. I am A sophmore in HS and I love coming back to Ashworth for a visit. I will always be a Mustang at heart, 'cause "You just can't hide that Mustang Pride!"

My daughter just completed kindergarten at Ashworth and I am very pleased with the school. She had a wonderful teacher who was very passionate about her students & the curriculum. The parent organization is also very active in the school. I believe that this is one of the main reason's this school has such a great success rate with the academic ratings. They did have a mid-year change with the principle & assistant principle. They did hire two new administrators who I hope will keep the school in exemplary standings.

This school has been a big disappointment. I moved to the area based on this particular school. My first time meeting the principal was my last. I only speak to the teacher when it's pertaining to something negative. I never hear anything positive from my child's teacher. I email the teacher for updates and get no response. I do however get flyers asking for $$$ or a letter from the teacher asking for $$$. I just feel like if I wasn't writing a check to Ashworth I was not worthy or welcomed there.

Both of my children have attended Ashworth Accelerated School and I have been very pleased with the results. The principal has a no nonsense approach to academics. The staff seem very dedicated. The school has a moto 'Accelerated academic, accelerated discipline and accelerated parental involvement'. They live this moto and I for one am pleased about it.

My child went to Ashworth from K-6. We felt that she got a great education and would recommend it to anyone. The administration does a great job at keeping the parents informed. After each grading period, they hold an awards assembly to recognize all the accomplishments of each child, from grades, to perfect attendence, and citizenship. Parents are encoraged to attend. The principal, Ms. Linderman is strict but very fair and caring. Parents are kept informed. The students all seem to excel at Ousley Jr. High, their next step.

I have two children that attend Ashworth. The principal sometimes forgets they are children. She doesn't like to be questioned! Their special education services are terrible. They want children to be same level, learning styles, and they teach them is this way. They don't believe in doing what it takes to teach a child to succeed. They want the child to fit into a box. It is sad but they aren't accepting of different learners and children. The great thing about this school is their extracurricular activities.

My kids where in the 2nd and 4th grades when they first attended ashworth elementary. Now they are in the 12th and 10th grades at one of our local high school. My experiment with Ashworth was wonderful years for me and my family. The principal was the most caring and effective leader. She always put her kids first. She made sure that ashworth always had quality teachers and A great enviroment.Thanks Ashworth for giving my kids A great educational beginning.

My step-daughter attends Ashworth & I love the web information provided. However, it would be nice to pull information (from this site) about your child's progress. You would be able to get current grades, areas of improvement need and other facts about your child. I know it is a long way, but the schools in MN use a technique similar to this suggestion & it really helps with learing and/or discipline problems. Overall, this is one of the best elementaries in Arlington.

My 7th grade daughter completed her elementary education this year at Ashworth. She completed K-6 at Ashworth. I am continuously amazed at the quality of teachers at this schools. I have a daughter currently in 4th grade and I have found the same to be true of her teachers. I find the principal at this school to be a tough but effective leader. I attribute a good deal of Ashworth's success to her leadership skills. I have a 4 year old starting Kindergarten next year and have complete confidence that she will achieve the same success as her older sisters have done at Ashworth.

We have not had an easy time with the principal but the vice principal is very easy to work with and very knowledgeable when it comes to children with learning and behavioral differences. She has gone out of her way to work with us. The teachers are all wonderful. Mrs. Neill, our sons 4th grade teacher is absolutely the best teacher in the world. She genuinely loves and cares about her students and it shows.
