About Our School

Success begins with A.

Located at Montview and Syracuse, Ashley Elementary School is an innovative new school with a proud tradition of serving the Montclair, Stapleton and Park Hill neighborhoods.

At Ashley we know the first steps on the path to succeed in middle school, high school and college are crucial. We offer every student a rigorous liberal arts education and exposure to the arts, sciences, languages, and technology. We strive to nurture the confidence and character needed to achieve goals and succeed in the 21st century help our students learn to have a positive impact our community through excellence in thought and action. Ashley Elementary School is a diverse community that embraces academic achievement as well as culture, language, arts and athletics.

Ashley Elementary’s pillars for success are based on:

 

RIGOROUS INSTRUCTION.
Blended learning combines teacher-led instruction through the use of technology. As a 1:1 iPad school, every student K-5 will have their own iPad to use at school to increase learning and engagement while balancing the importance of direct instruction, teaching and learning.

LITERACY.
With 180 minutes of literacy instruction a day, students are able to engage in critical thinking in reading and writing while developing strong communication skills.

MATH & SCIENCE.
Students are exposed to a rigorous mathematics curriculum and given hands-on science opportunities to prepare for the science, technology, engineering and math careers of the future!

ARTS, ATHLETICS & ENRICHMENT.
Many options are available for music, visual arts, dance, activities and clubs as well as athletic teams and a full spectrum of enrichment opportunities.

COMMUNITY.
Daily community meetings and an active Ashley Parent Organization define our positive school culture. Our local community and families are engaged, present and part of building our dream school, together.
