Ashmore Elementary School is a K-4 building located approximately 8 miles east of
Charleston in the village of Ashmore. The one-story building is situated on a site of
approximately three acres. Scattered around the spacious playground are several
different types of trees.
Support programs include reading recovery, speech/language and special education
services. Technology is also widely used and integrated into the curriculum.
The design of the building is quite different from the traditional elementary school. The
main part of the building surrounds a spacious central library. Students in grades first
through fourth are in classrooms that open directly onto the library. The openness of
the design contributes to the warm, family type atmosphere of the school. Students
receive an excellent academic program presented in a supportive environment. The
entire school staff strives to create a warm and inviting atmosphere where parents
and students will feel comfortable.
Parental involvement is evident at Ashmore School. There is a picnic and talent
show held at the end of the school year. It is always well attended by family and friends.
