Message From Principal Bare

I have the best job! It has been such a pleasure this past week to watch our students be so successful in so many different ways. Our volleyball team had a hugely successful Dig Pink night, raising money for a great cause and got a great win! Our Leadership students earned over $1000 for students affected by the Hornbrook fire. Boys and girls soccer "kicked" it out of the park with a pair of impressive wins. Rogue News put out an awesome paper, and our new screen printing class has provided amazing opportunities for students to show off their artistic, business, and technical expertise. #AHS is ready!! Thank you for sending us your amazing students each day, and for supporting our mission to inspire learning for life.

AHS Theater Presents: Shooting Stars

Shooting Stars

Ashland High School Theatre collaborates with OSF veterans

to present Shooting Stars, a dive into America in 1962

and its first all-female traveling basketball team.

The student ensemble cast includes Nicky Clary, Carmen Kerr, Allie Poole, Samara French, Brooklyn Williams, Anabella Ross, Elena Schmeling, Anabella Ross, and Kylah Ward.


Ashland High School Theatre opens their 2018 season and the 25th Anniversary of their OSF/AHS Partnership with a delightful comedy directed by OSF actor Barret O'Brien.

Shooting Stars by Molly Newman will play 8 shows:

Thurs-Sat, Nov 1-3 & Nov 8-10 @ 7:30 pm

Sundays, Nov 4 and 11 @ 2 pm.

The time is 1962; the place is a locker room in a small Midwestern town; the team is The Shooting Stars, a novelty all-female basketball team. As The Shooting Stars prepare to face off against the local men's team, the young women emerge as distinct personalities who reveal the lives they’ve abandoned to join the traveling team. The entrance of the team's male owner, creates a stir as he oversees every aspect of the women’s lives: from diet to hair style, from the language they’re allowed to use to the way they’re allowed to play the game. But when an unexpected event changes everything, the women are given the chance to chart their own destiny—forced to choose between abandoning the sport that they love or rising into the groundbreakers that they are capable of becoming.

Our efforts to repair this barrier will support healthy riparian habitat both at the Springs and down-stream. These riparian areas will then go on to provide habitat for a diverse array of mammals, birds, insects, amphibians, and more.

This event will involve challenging physical labor. Please come prepared. We will be working rain or shine!
