Ashland Elementary, built in 1916, was named for statesman Henry Clay's nearby home. The building was torn down in 1971, and a new building was completed on the same site in August 1972. A playground was constructed in the fall of 1993, and the school was renovated in 2000. The attractiveness of the school site enhances all aspects of the instructional programs. Ashland Elementary is a place where children thrive as individuals and feel successful.


What makes our school special

Ashland integrates an in-depth study of the arts as students benefit from studies in dance/drama, art, chorus, keyboarding, orchestra and band. An innovative and creative arts team weaves the arts into the curriculum on a five-day rotation as well as an additional hour on F.A.C.T. Friday (Fine Arts Cultural Tract). In addition, our five-day gifted program for grades 3-5 adds to fabric and diversity of Ashland.
