Alexandria Senior High School is a public secondary school located in Alexandria, Louisiana, United States. The school serves about 1,300 students in grades 9 to 12 in the Rapides Parish School Board district.
Alexandria Senior High (commonly referred to as "ASH") first opened in the fall of 1969. A few months before the school opened, a makeshift student council was elected by the local junior and senior high school students that would be joining to create ASH's student body. This advisory board acted as a Student Council until one could be elected. During its first meeting, the council selected the school colors of purple and gold. The Council went on to choose its mascot, the Trojan. In the 2010-2011 school year, Alexandria Senior High was the second largest school in Rapides Parish.
The high schools sports teams, the ASH Trojans, are members of LHSAA. ASH is scheduled to move to the LHSAA's top classification, Class 5A, starting in August 2013. The Trojans competed in the second highest classification, 4A, from 1991 to 1992 through 2012-13, when the school was reclassified into 5A, the highest classification. ASH is currently a member of District 2-5A with Rapides Parish rival Pineville, along with Natchitoches Central, Ouachita, Ruston, West Monroe and West Ouachita.
