CTE Student of the Month
I have had the distinct pleasure of having Carlos A. as a student in my Construction class and on my list of outstanding students at Ashe County High School. Carlos has been more than the ideal student. In order to achieve the highest grades and my deepest respect, he has demonstrated outstanding leadership and maintained a clear sense of purpose.
The curriculum in Construction 1-2 classes is most challenging, and Carlos fulfilled all the requirements with the added challenge of the rigorous curriculum such as design software on the computer. Carlos was an outstanding extemporaneous speaker in the interview process that we do in class.
Due to its nature of state test and testing within the class, this has made Carlos a successful high school student. He has served by not only representing his school but also by representing his community as well. He developed a strong sense of confidence with a good attitude. Therefore, I could always depend on him to set the best example as an instructor.

Ashe County High School is making literacy a priority this year! To support the "ACHS Reads!" literacy initiative, high school teachers put signs on their classroom doors sharing their personal reading habits with students and colleagues. Place your cursor over each sign to zoom in. Many teachers are also making time for silent, recreational reading with their students this year.
