The Arts at Ashland



Ashland Mission

Our mission is to be an exemplary learning community. We build the foundation of this community through meaningful relationships, intentional and engaging learning, clear communication, and a collaborative commitment to coaching students to be valuable contributing members of the global community.

Ashland Vision

Ashland will be a school where ALL students are critically thinking problem solvers who demonstrate perserverance, independence, responsibility and strong moral character. While ensuring that students feel safe, loved and excited about school and learning, Ashland teachers will partner with students and families to close achievement gaps.

The Arts at Ashland Elementary is an innovative new public elementary school program. The Arts at Ashland is founded on the principle that the integration of arts education into the regular curriculum is a catalyst for the academic and social success of all students. Plans for the school were developed by a group of educators, parents and community residents who saw a need for new alternatives for the children of downtown Lexington. After countless hours of planning, The Arts at Ashland opened its doors in August 2005. We, here at Ashland, are excited about this journey and we hope you will decide to take your child on this journey with us.
