A high school located in Gastonia, NC (right out of Charlotte, NC) on New Hope Road next to the Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins and the infamous Handy Pantry on the corner. The biggest high school in the county and also the most academically inclined school (offering more AP courses then almost all the other high schools combined). They offer the intense AP and college-level courses where some students overload themselves with AP courses in order to get a higher GPA and graduate as valedictorian while completely avoiding difficult classes such as AP BIOLOGY and opting to take AP PSYCH (aka AP SLEEPING) and other independent study classes because they are "exceeding the curriculum" where in reality they only study and have no life whatsoever. Should someone really be punished because their "A" is giving them an honors credit instead of an AP credit? The school hosts the infamous greenwave mascot which is literally a wave thats green. Ashbrook excels in all sports and usually wins the conference tournament or is the runner up. In 2002 Ashbrook won both the Football State Championship along with the State Baseball Championship. The cross town rival is Hunter Huss High School which pretty much sucks at every sport imaginable. However, when the last game of the regular season rolls around (Ashbrook vs. Huss) the competition evens out as the two schools "Battle for the Bell" which is literally a game to decide who gets to keep the massive bell for the next year. Its been pretty even competition in the past and this game still brings in massive crowds year after year. Other rivals include the spastic South Point warriors who host a whole bunch of females who look like males, along with Forestview jaguars who are infamous for popping their collars and vandalizing the property of other schools and nobody will ever forget when Ashbrook students rushed the field in one of forestview's home games with a braveheart theme. Other rivals include North Gaston which sucks at every sport imaginable and has ride your tractor to school day. . . the rest of the schools aren't important. All that matters in gastonia is if your blood runs green or not. Senior girls still continue the long tradition of PAinter's Club where they wear overalls while the Senior boys do push-ups for each touchdown we score (CHest Club). Whos your daddy?? ASHBROOK! ASHBROOK!
Ashbrook is a High School composed of the finest students in the county who continue to be movers and shakers in gastonia or end up just smoking pot the rest of their lives.
