This year is my third year attending Ashley Hall and from day one there was such a strong bond between the faculty and students. The school I attended prior to Ashley Hall had me feeling detached and lonely due to the large class numbers and the many disruptive peers. I remember the painful emotions I felt after realizing I was in the wrong place. From there I realized I had to move on to a school where more students value their education. I researched Ashley Hall myself because I desperately wanted a more wholesome community and an academically challenging curriculum. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to attend AH and for the relationships I have established with the school and surrounding community. This environment is like no other I have experienced before; it is utterly supportive and encourages each individual to constantly look for and cultivate their own passion.
