My child started attending Avery's Creek in the 2012-2013 school year. He was unhappy about the move and leaving his first school behind. The staff worked very hard with him and his teachers have been more than we could hope for in their determination to help him be his best. He has gone from below reading level to above, his math scores are excellent, and he is happy there. Principal Nunez has been very good for the school. She shows interest in all the students and works very hard to help the school excel.
Once again, the bully prevails with the help of an ineffectual, disrespectful, and rude administration. The victim's family is left paralyzed from the farcical policies and nonexistent regulations of their zero tolerance bully system.
One of my children, was consistently assaulted both verbally and physically, by a particular student. The administration failed to protect my child. One day at car rider line dismissal, I was told that my kindergartener could be located. After 20 minutes, I found my child huddled, in a corner crying. Administration blamed my 5 year old instead of the person, being paid to watch the children. Enroll your children at your own risk.
Avery's Creek is far ahead of the curve in embracing a global identity. This school is exceptional.
This school is horrible! They claim they don't allow bullying yet my daughter has been tormented on several occasions without anything being done. The administration and staff is absolutely incompetent and rude as can be! The principal is the worst of them all! The only reason I gave it two stars is because of Mr.Worley! He is the only teacher there worth mentioning and cares about the students, besides making a positive impact in their lives. Thank you Mr. Worley!
my daughter attended this school and was treated with disrespect and unconcern for her needs, the princapal is rude, hateful and uncaring. this school is over crowded and unorganized. my daughter was also bullied at this school and nothing was every done about it .it was always just dismissed as normal childhood behavior. i would not allow my children to attend this school if you can help it.
Averys creek is a great school with very nice staff members. All I have to say is that their food is not always good. I'd like them to cook their chicken nuggets a little longer.But alltogether it is the best school in buncombe county, and I would certanly recommend it!
This school is overcrowded and has not passed the end of grade testing for a least 2 years
We LOVE Avery's Creek Elementary. The teachers are great and our child has enjoyed going to school every day. We are excited about starting first grade in the fall.
My child finished kindergarten this year. For the most part, I was very pleased with how things went. Her teacher was a former 1st grade teacher from another school. She challenged the kids to do the best they can. She was always friendly & very willing to help out and deal with any concerns/questions we had. My biggest gripe was not getting enough notice when fundraisers were about to start, or when they were selling something, like field day t-shirts & pictures. In most cases, we got a week. It would be nice to have several weeks notice, to be able to save up the money. All in all, I'm happy with the school & look forward to next year!
We experienced bullying at this School with both of our children attending there. We are very disappointed in the School system & Teachers.
We've not been impressed with the school so far. We've been very disappointed. At open house we didn't see anything they've been doing for the entire month. We were shocked about that. The former teacher now bus driver made my kids cry several times so I finally pulled them off the bus. I think they're unorganized and not prepared for anything. I'll give them one star for trying.
Our daughter really enjoys going to Avery's Creek. Nice kids, nice families. We really appreciate how caring the teachers and the bus drivers are! Academically, we feel the school is challenging enough and our daughter's reading level and mathmatic abilities have greatly improved since she has attended Averys Creek. She seems to want to do well there! The only improvement we could wish for is more extracurricular opportuinities.. A chorus, drama club, science club.? We believe this could really make this school stand above the rest!
Overall it's a good school with a friendly and caring environment. The bus drivers are great! The cafeteria is crowded. Some teachers are burned out and need to go while others still love what they do! There seems to be a lack of discipline or control in some classes. Kindergarten and 5th grade were tough for my son as there was a noticeable personality conflict between him and his teachers. Mr. Wince the art teacher is the best ever! The school is made up of very diverse families. I would love to see afterschool activities or clubs for students of all backgrounds to have a chance to get involved.
I was VERY happy with my daughters teacher. She really cared about all of the students and my daughter loved every day she went to school! My son had a great year too but his teacher seemed a little overwhelmed. There were a lot of boys in his class and it got pretty crazy in there. I felt like my son wasn't pushed enough in work they did and because the class was so out of order, they didn't get to focus and do the best they could do in work. The lunch room is also very small for the amount of children at that school. They have to really rush to eat and get out of there so the next class can take their place. Overall I like the school.
