Demographic Information about the Students:
The 407 students at Ashton School are predominantly of Dominican nationality from Spanish-speaking homes. Most enter Ashton School in PK or First Grade from both Spanish and English program preschools where students have been taught some English. Nonetheless, the majority of our students are English Language Learners (ELL). All of the students from the four classes that have graduated since 2011 have gone on to attend college, including universities abroad. Yet for both financial and cultural reasons, many families still prefer that their children carry out undergraduate studies in the Dominican Republic, opting for a Master’s Degree in the United States.
In addition, about 60% of our students are involved in co-curricular activities ranging from team sports, to gymnastics, drama, music. In addition, students have the opportunity to participate in academic programs such as Model United Nations, Student Council, National Honor Society, Debate Team and Advocacy Film Festival Team.
