Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

West Buncombe is a wonderful school! Every person on staff cares for the children and strives to make the children the best they can be. Mrs. Murray is fabulous, and it's obvious she really loves the children and loves what she does. I wouldn't send my children anywhere else!

The teacher's are awesome but, we don't care for the principal very much. She doesn't seem kid friendly to us. Apparently other parent's have different opinions about her but, the experiences that we have had are not that great. I think the only negative thing about this school is the principal because I think that there is a click here. If they know you, you are in, if not then... Our daughter really loves the school and her teachers. So, thank you to the wonderful teachers and great parents!

I've always heard this school was one of the best. This may be true if your child is an honor roll student. My child has struggled academically since kindergarten (he is now 10 years old). When I brought his struggles to their attention, they dealt with it by ignoring the issue.

This is a top notch elementary school. Not only am I a parent of a child here, but I teach at the highschool level, and I know good schools. Ms. Murray, the principal, is wonderful. She cares about the children and makes safety a top priority. The academics are top, perhaps even a little too difficult for some. There is a lot of parental involvement and extracuricular activies are available.
