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 new 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. We offer Advanced Placement (AP) and Honors courses, Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs, exceptional children services, a revitalized Gifted/Talented and High Potential program and many other academic and student support programs.
Year after year, our students excel in every arena: in the classroom, on the athletic field, in the performing arts, and through extracurricular activities. Our highly qualified employees care deeply about the success of students, and our parents and community/business partners offer tremendous support to our schools.
As we begin a new school year, we invite you to visit the district website (www.ashland.kyschools.us) and your child’s school website for the latest information, news and announcements. Parents who have questions or concerns during the year are encouraged to contact their child’s teacher or the school principal.
The Board of Education joins me in extending best wishes to you for a productive school year filled with many opportunities. Working together, we will inspire success and a lifetime of learning in Ashland Independent Schools.
