Ash Grove High School is offering two sessions for the 2023 Summer School, May 30-June 9 and June 12-23. Classes will meet from 8:00am to 3:05pm. Enrollment application and bus transportation pickup/dropoff times for the district are listed below.
High school students may earn 0.5 credit per session, and students who just completed their 8th grade year may enroll in summer school classes as a 9th grader and receive high school credit.

The school will serve a free breakfast and free lunch every day for every child. We encourage all children to take advantage of this free program. Breakfast will be served 7:40am – 7:55am, and lunch will be served to junior high and high school students from 11:40am-12:00pm. Meals for all grades will be served in the elementary cafeteria.
