    We love this school! The teachers and staff are caring and truly want to see their students succeed. The principal goes above and beyond expectations. When my oldest two daughters started going to Asbury 3 & 1/2 years ago (in kindergarten & 2 grade) the school was just beginning a program called daily 5. This incorporates reading in 5 different ways to improve their reading skills. Finding this out was an answer to prayer because I wanted my girls to excel and I knew that the most important aspect of excelling is reading. They also have extra staff who help the children who are struggling. And a wonderful smiling secretary as well. And when I say the staff of this school truly cares I mean that whole-heartedly! Their passion is educating these kids and making them feel special along the way! Thank you to all the staff who have cared for and loved all three of my girls!

    Asbury has a very dedicated staff. The new principal seems to be off to a good start. Students are involved active learners. Teachers are working hard to meet the needs of the children. Children come to Asbury to learn!

    Asbury has a great staff. The teachers are very dedicated and generally value each and every child. However class size is too big (28-30 each in class). We are supposedly one of the smaller schools in the district. The school has many opportunties for parents to get involved. It will be real interesting to see how this new curriculum 'Core Knowledge' helps improve our academic standing. We have a bond issue up in November. I don't think it's going to pass. Too many negatives surrounding the school district its administration and the community.

    My daughther just completed grade 1 in Mrs. Schniders class and had a wonderful school year. I could not have asked for a better teacher. My daughter also got to participate in the title one reading program and is reading at a level 23 now. The title one teacher Mrs. Dade is also wonderful with working with the kids. She made reading interesting and fun for my daughter.
