Asheville City Schools Reviews
Asheville City Schools generally provides a steady educational track that sets students up for success from the beginning. Their schools provide safe learning environments and offer a wide array of rigorous courses to take. However, they are not the best with evenly dividing funding among programs, as their arts are lacking while their sports have too much funding. There is no need for Asheville High to have 5-6 football coaches and not be able to afford to put on a musical every year.
Asheville city schools is the probably one of the better schools districts in the county. I wasn't living in the district and had to pay to be able to go to Asheville High. But I knew that that school was much better than the high school I was suppose to go to. I got a much better education, was able to stay with the students I had gone to middle school with, and overall a better high school experience. There are clubs for everyone, they give students the option to explore trade courses and college courses, and were good with handling all students. They made sure everyone got a fair shot and trying what they wanted and making sure everyone had the resources they needed. Overall would recommend.
My overall experience attending schools in the Asheville City Schools district was/is great! I feel as though I'm respected by my peers and educators, and, as a Junior, I really love the opportunities that we have to take classes at the college across the street.
