The administration at this school and staff are amazing! They go out of their way to make children and parents feel welcome and appreciated. My child with autism is a challenge for anyone but the staff at this school just roll with it. This has to be the best principal we've ever met.

Exceptional. The Principal is top notch. He really cares! He gives his time to everyone who asks. You cannot find a better Principal, Mr Barbour is wonderful. Nice campus, excellent teachers. Safe, happy place

My children have received an amazing, well-rounded education at Estes. Their classes are differentiated, challenging and engaging. Solid leadership and amazing array of extra curricular activities.

I love how dedicated teachers and staff are. there was no single day my children didn't want to go to school and it's already November ;) I also really like how handicapped children are integrated.



- a parent
I would agree most teachers are good, but there are a few who believe in punitive punishment for elementary school kids. It is shameful that a few rotten ones can put a blemish on an otherwise great school, with a great principal and vice principal.

My daughter started Estes in November when we relocated to Asheville. As most parents, we reviewed test scores and all of the statistics. Estes performs well on standardized testing, but I am most impressed with the nurturing school environment. Everybody is so caring and positive! Instead of 'yelling' at students to look in the lost in found, the administrators and teachers put on a 'fashion show' for the students using clothes from the lost and found. (Everybody was laughing.) That is just one example of how this school uses positive reinforcements on a daily basis to get the best from their staff and students!
