Ashby High School honors one student in junior high and one student in senior high each month for their hard work and dedication to the school and the community. Students are nominated monthly by teachers for their outstanding achievement in Citizenship, Academics, and Leadership. Students with the most nominations are awarded the title of Student of the Month. Below is a short description of qualities looked for in a potential Student of the Month.
Citizenship: Has a good sense of humor; is not critical of others; accepts criticism; is coach-able; is polite; obeys rules; follows directions; is a good sport; is dependable; helps others; and is honest.

Students of the Month
Once a month we will take the time to recognize students who show the Ashby way on a continuous basis. The two students have been recognized by their teachers as students who have stood out amongst their peers to show the school and community the true meaning of dedication, passion, and hard work.
