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.

We recently moved here from Oklahoma, and I must say that Ashworth is everything that I wanted for my child. The discipline is wonderful and on the academic level it has provided a true challenge for her.

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.

I have children at Ashworth, as well as teach there; Ashworth is such a fantastic school! I am so priviledged to work with an awesome faculty. All the teachers and staff work their absoluted best to see all students' potential maximized by providing excellence. After working in many schools, and several states, I can truly say, Ashworth is the best!

Ashworth provides a wonderful environment for my kids and they enjoy attending school everyday. The teachers are always there for the parents when we need to discuss anything and we are always kept informed of our childs behaviors. We are grateful to have this wonderful school for our kids.

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.
