About Our School

  • Our Vision and Mission: Ashley Park PreK-8 School equips scholars with the academic skills and habits of character to believe in and ensure their limitless potential in high school, college and beyond.

    Ashley Park Prek- 8 School serves approximately 400 children on the west side of Charlotte. Our scholars are focused on building habits of character and academic skill, to ensure their investment in themselves, their potential and their future. We proudly serve two PreK classes, K-5 classes and 6-8 Academy classes. All of our scholars are actively involved in music, art, gym, AVID, Career and Technological Education and hands on learning, as well as many extracurriculars and athletics.  We have many amazing athletic teams (football, soccer, basketball, volleyball, etc.). 

    The staff at Ashley Park is very talented and creative in the ways they approach teaching in the classroom; they truly go above and beyond for their scholars. Our staff accept responsibility for all scholar learning and provide the support structures needed to ensure that every child grows and develops their academic knowledge.
