Greetings! I have had the privilege to serve as principal at Ashland-Greenwood Elementary School for over twenty years and enjoy working with our wonderful students, families and staff. At AGES, our focus is on learning so that students and staff can be their very best! Our goal is to ensure that every student is challenged to reach their full potential. Instruction is designed to meet the needs of our students. Early intervention and support, as well as extended learning and enrichment opportunities, are available to our students.
We have a dedicated staff that provides our students with an excellent educational experience. Ashland-Greenwood Elementary School is a place where everyone feels at home and is a part of the Ashland-Greenwood family. Please come and visit us at any time!
