Suzanne Carlson, Principal
Welcome to Ashland Ranch Elementary School! As the proud principal, I am honored to lead the dedicated staff whose commitment to quality education has earned Ashland Ranch Elementary School the grade of “A” from the Arizona Department of Education. The highly effective and caring teaching staff is skilled in developing rigorous coursework and ensuring a nurturing and supportive learning environment for our students.
I feel fortunate that my path to date has culminated in being the principal of such a talented staff for a wonderful school community, I am truly blessed! During my 20 plus years in education I have held a variety of roles in each academic level, including junior high and high school. What I learned the most is that regardless of a child’s age, children thrive and learn in a school environment with high expectations - and with teachers who know that making connections with students and developing relationships and a sense of classroom community is the foundation of teaching.
On a personal note, I have a beautiful family. My two daughters are growing up too fast. My oldest, Shelby, is a senior at the University of Arizona. My youngest, Sydney, is a junior in high school. I know that their success is partly due to the guidance and love of exceptional teachers. Each year as new kindergarten parents entrust us with their child for the first time, I am reminded of how lucky we are to have the opportunity to make a lasting impression on the lives of children. Ashland’s mission statement is, “Every kid - Every Day.” We work tirelessly to ensure that every child is growing academically, socially, and emotionally.
Thank you for sharing your children with us. We are committed to providing exceptional care and high quality, rigorous education. We value your thoughts and feedback.
If you have any questions, or if I can support you or your child in any way, please call or come and see me.
Suzanne M. Carlson
