Eugene Ashley High School is a high school just outside Wilmington, North Carolina, located in the New Hanover County School District. The facility was opened in the New Hanover County Veteran's Park in 2001. The school was named after Sgt. Eugene Ashley, Jr., a native of Wilmington who died at age 37 in the battle of Lang Vei during the Vietnam War. Over the past 5 years, there has been 4 different principles, but the school mission has never changed.

Entertainment Media/Filming[edit]

Located just over 10 miles away from the Wilmington EUE/Screen Gems Studio - the largest production facility in the United States outside of California - the school has become a popular site for filming high school related films and dramas.

Filming for the 2009 film The Marc Pease Experience took place at the school and inside the Minnie Evans Art Center in February 2007.[2] The school's hallways and media center took place for Tree Hill High School on The CW series One Tree Hill, and has also been seen in episodes of the HBO comedy Eastbound & Down.

The ABC family movie Teen Spirit, starring Cassie Scerbo and Lindsey Shaw, was filmed around the school grounds in 2011. Filming took place in the courtyard, around the campus and the surrounding Veteran's Park, and inside the school in various locations including the gym and the main hall.[3]

Other Media[edit]

The school debuted a mobile web application for iPhone, Android, and Blackberry during the 2012-2013 school year. The app, which has reached almost 2,900 downloads in less than a year, aims to help parents and students alike to keep connected to the school with easy access to calendars, event pages, and other functions of the regular website. The app is not available for download in an app store, but instead can be downloaded from a link to the Local Free Apps page on the school website or by scanning a QR code presented on the site.[4]
