- ―The Ashleys, together
|Founded:||When all of the Ashleys were in kindergarten (1993/1994)|
|Members:|| Ashley A.|
Spinelli (associated only by name)
|Base of Operations:||Ashley Clubhouse|
|Occupation:||Clique of pretty, fashionable mean girls|
The Ashleys are a clique of four beautiful, fashionable, snobby and spoiled girls, and are always uttering the phrase "scandalous." They each have a younger brother named Tyler and a younger sister named Brittany.
They are recurring antagonists towards the Recess Gang, enough so that when they give great tickets to Spinelli, they see it as a trick. They have been known to have ideas that can do damage to the playground itself, while they are benefitted, for example, a rating system that caused catastrophic damage to the playground's balance of nature until the Recess Gang managed to fix it.
The Ashleys always win the school can collection drive, using their families' money so they can just buy hundreds of cans of food. This makes up for the other classes not participating since they know that they can't beat The Ashleys' class.
The Ashleys first met sometime back when they were in Kindergarten. Coincidentally, all four of The Ashleys were wearing purple when they first met. To celebrate the anniversary of the day they first met, which they refer to as "Purple Day," The Ashleys have a tradition of wearing only purple on that day. They take the tradition really seriously, to the point of where Ashley A. was temporarily kicked out of the group for (accidentally) wearing yellow instead of purple. Ashley A. hung out with Gretchen Grundler until she was let back into the group by Ashleys B, Q, and T.
- Ashley Armbruster "Ashley A." ~ The leader whose signature color is pink.
- Ashley Boulet "Ashley B." ~ The second-in-command whose signature color is yellow.
- Ashley Quinlan "Ashley Q." ~ Her signature color is blue. She's arguably the meanest of the Ashleys.
- Ashley Tomassian "Ashley T." ~ Her signature color is green. She's the quietest of the Ashleys.
Members of the association
- Ashley Spinelli "Ashley S." ~ Spinelli's only considered a member by association because she has the same first name as the other Ashleys. The Ashleys are generally antagonistic towards Spinelli and her friends and Spinelli hates to partake in the Ashleys' snobbery.
- Their full last names are revealed in the episode "The Beauty Contest", which is also the first time the Ashleys are seen in their formal wear.
- In the show's Spanish dub, their catchphrase is "¡Que escándalo!" ("What a scandal!")
- In the Portuguese dub, their first names are changed to "Patricia," but their last names stayed the same.
- They may be based on the Heathers from the 80s cult film, Heathers.
