    Ashworth is a great school. I have been going to Ashworth for two years now the teachers and staff are really nice. Any teacher would be glad to you with any thing. Like this one seventh grade teacher has after school classes to help you. Ashworth has some competitiveness but it doesn't interferer with the learing . Yes I go to Ashworth yes I love this school but I have something to say to you people who hate Ashworth because you go to a different school. I'm getting a education at this school so say what ever you want to I don't care. Ashworth is a awsome school!!!!

    This school seems more worried about there extracurricular activities and putting kids out of school than learning the asistant principal is very un helpful and does't listen and does not return your calls to give you answers back about a situation he pulls down the self asteem of students

    I go to Ashworth middle School. When I first got there I thought it would be terrible but now a am coming around. It is very easy to concentrate there and it is easy to learn. The teachers are very energetic about learning new things. I am glad I go there even though I left all my friends at Calhoun.
