Hall Fletcher is a great school. We live in the neighborhood and enrolled our children and really, really like the convenience of walking to school. On the way to school, my kids pass the sweet playground, basketball courts, the F.E.A.S.T. School garden that has a dedicated teacher who teaches the kids to plant, grow, prepare and eat healthy foods. There is a massive field adjecant to the school which hosts School events like Slide the Fletch (water slide fun in the summer!), Fall the Fletch (Autumn inspired event) and Camp the Fletch, in addition to many more wonderful community events. As this isn't enough, there will be a soon to be completed Outdoor Learning Center where kids will learn in dynamically designed space. The PreK room has 3 wonderful teachers and little ones become familiar with school which shortens the achievement gap. The staff, teachers and PTO is friendly, involved and very important, diverse! The staff has one of the lowest turn over rates for the district which shows how committed they are to the students. For afterschool there is the YMCA who have two dedicated staff that are fun and engaging with the kids and there is MusicWorks! which is tied to the Asheville Symphony and teaches children instruments and being part of the band. MW! Concerts are so fun to attend! I can't praise Hall Fletcher enough. We are Hall Fletcher!
Jones has been great for our family. We have so far enjoyed 14 student-years at jones between our three sons and have NEVER had a bad year. The atmosphere is wonderful - positive and friendly! While the other elementary schools may boast higher average end-of-grade scores, I wholeheartedly believe that my kids have received the best instructors and instruction avalable. I'd recommend Jones to anyone.
I have 2 kids at IDES. I appreciate the teachers and their efforts in working with kids to instill confidence and self awareness. I'm grateful that my older kid gets special attention to keep her challenged.
