Welcome to a new year in Ashland Independent Schools! We are glad to have you as part of our school family and hope you are looking forward to the 2018-2019 academic year.

Ashland Independent Schools is the largest independent school district in eastern Kentucky.  We offer a full-day Head Start/Preschool, 5 elementary, 1 middle, and 1 high school for our students.  We anticipate having nearly 3,200 students and over 500 employees. We are extremely proud of our schools and their continued commitment to high academic standards and improved student achievement. All schools provide opportunities for every student at every ability level.

News & Announcements

FRYSC Reconfiguration Better Meets Student needs Red ribbon cutting ceremony for the new youth service center now housed at Paul Blazer High School.

The Kentucky Family Resource Youth Services Centers (FRYSC) strive to remove barriers in the lives of students to help them reach their full potential by relieving stressors that could be impacting their academic performance. Since opening in the early 1990s, Ashland Youth Services Center (AYSC) took care of the nearly 1700 students at both Ashland Middle School (AMS) and Paul Blazer High School (PBHS) under one grant with staff at both schools under one coordinator. In the late spring of 2018, the State of Kentucky offered to fund Family Resource and Youth Services Centers (FRYSC) for schools that did not have one and to fund stand-alone FRYSC covering multiple schools that were able to show student need. AYSC applied for the grant and was approved for reconfiguration, giving both PBHS and AMS stand-alone Youth Services Centers.

Last Day for Students and Graduation set for May 23, 2019
