Hi Holly did you move to Black mountain? I Love this area but like you I worry about the schools. I also have a gifted son who unfortunately did not come from a gifted mom Ha Ha. Home schooling is out for me. Thanks!

Here is a link to the Buncombe County School System where there are a multitude of statistics about each school, each district, and how our county school system stacks up against other NC schools, districts, and systems - all valid/legitimate/audited data from original source...

Owen Schools are terrible. Every teacher dosn't care about the students & the people are rude, mean, selfish, & the worst people ive ever met in my whole life. This town is terrible. The school is low preforming & i can see why. I come from North Buncombe & they are MUCH MUCH better!

Holly, we have fine public schools in the area and an array of private and charter schools nearby as well. I don't know what grade your son is in, but this is a small enough community that allows children to receive a little more personal attention than more urban areas.

They are a title 1 school and they offer AIG for those children that are ahead academically.

Yes I know, but you cannot really tell anything from that. I was hoping for an experienced opinion. One of my children needs extremely high academic standards and I am trying to see if there would be any opportunities available for him if we relocate to this area
