Profile Completeness


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.

Fantastic school. I transferred to Enka my senior year, and started my first day without knowing a soul. By the end of my year, I did not want to leave. I had gone to a private catholic school in FL where I was extremely unhappy. Bullying was a huge issue at my prior school. Everyone at Enka was friendly, and accepting. I can't remember seeing one fight my entire time there. The teachers were fantastic, they cared about their students and genuinly seemed happy to be there. I could not endore this school more. Thank you Enka High School!

Enka High School has greatly impressed me with it's excellent focus on academics. The school offers an array of AP classes and is head and shoulders above any other school in the area of Classical Studies. Many other high schools have dropped Latin, but it remains strong at Enka.

I give Enka High School 5 stars in regards to academics, teacher communication, and overall school communication. The counseling department is topnotch in helping students prepare for college. Thank you Enka High School staff for your hard work, and your care for the kids!

Enka High is number one in my book. The academics are great and Enka High School offers more Advanced Placement courses than any other school in Buncombe County. We have a brand new football stadium with artificial turf and the best wrestling team around. We also have the best marching band. Enka High School is located in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina and the school website is www.enkahigh.net . The principle Don Icenhower runs an academic focused school and runs it well.
