Miss Ashley Martin

August 14, 2020

Iron Academy is pleased to announce another addition to our Iron Family, Ashley Martin. Miss Martin's primary responsibility will be teaching Middle School history classes.

In the world today, high schoolers being raised as leaders is unheard of; but at Iron Academy, it is common practice. I have been going to Iron for six going on seven years and I have been learning aspects of leadership since day one.

The position of school leader is a crucial part of the IA culture. I’ve never seen a transition of authority that is this supportive. When I took the mantle up from the previous school leader, Stone, he was extremely helpful and always there when I needed advice on any issue.
