Buncombe County Schools Reviews
I go to UNC Asheville. It is smaller than most Universities but is always growing! The teachers are wonderful and classes, on average, consists of 25-35 students; this way, there is more one on one help provided if needed. The campus is easy to walk with most of the buildings close by each other. I am looking forward to another 2 years at this college!
Buncombe County Schools is the most amazing county in North Carolina. I attend North Buncombe High School currently. I've been through all of the schools for North Buncombe, and every single one has made me feel so loved, wanted and appreciated. The teachers and staff make you feel protected and mkae sure you have everything you need. You are taught in serveral different ways, depending on what you need and they are willing to work with what you need. Here, you are taught more than just academics. You are taught to love and care for one another. To protect, and serve. To be the best person you can be. Socially, academically, and mentally. I love North Buncombe and Buncombe County, so much. We are like family here . <3
Buncombe County Schools consistently demonstrated drive and passion when it came to education the children of the area. While their lack of funding was quite apparent, as it usually is with public schools throughout the country, their efforts to provide the best possible education for all students would encourage any young individual to reciprocate such drive with hard work and academic vigor. Buncombe County Schools work alongside the community to create a variety of academic and extracurricular activities for their students to help keep them focused and on the right track. They would benefit greatly from re-prioritizing their budget spending and an increase of funds, but overall they do a valuable job of preparing their students for further education and opportunities.
