The Arts at Ashland

The mission of Ashland Elementary School is to create an environment that challenges students to high standards of learning, thereby creating lifelong learners.

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.
