Open Quote Ashley Ridge is a great school. We are often viewed by other schools at the one to beat (in everything from sports to acedemics). We have a great faculty that makes sure every individual student's needs are met and that every student enjoys their high school experience. It's a safe and friendly enviorment that makes me wake up each morning WANTING to go to school! I advise any parent looking for a school for their child in the Summerville area to send them here! :) Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
