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.
