Asheville City Schools Reviews

Great education, though constant change of administration. Great place for anyone, as there is a wide range of people, making it nearly impossible to not have any friends. We offer a plethora of advanced placement classes, as well as vocational classes. We have great varsity sports, as many state champions are produced. Our students have lots of school spirit, as the student section at football games is nearly deafening. Overall I have had a great experience at Asheville High School. My only complaint is that I have had five principles during my four years of school

I have had a great experience with the city schools, one child attended Claxton Elementary, Asheville Middle and Asheville High and is now a college Junior, and another child currently at Isaac Dickson Elementary. The district serves a diverse population and the staff and administration have created inclusive environments for learning and inspiring students.
I love the diversity of the community, but Asheville City Schools needs to work on consistency. The teachers (at the high school) aren't consistent and neither are the rules or administration. Also, the high school needs to work on new ideas and making them happen instead of shooting down opinions that don't seem feasible at the beginning.
