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, was chosen. In the 2010-2011 school year, Alexandria Senior High is the second largest school in the Parish.[6]
