I think we have the best principal and staff at N.B. Elementary School. They care about the students and want them to succeed.

NBES is a warm, inviting, nurturing and a creative environment for my daughter. We have the greatest teachers, staff and administration. Each child is made to feel special! My daughter loves going to school and I couldn't ask for a better place to help lay the foundation for a lifetime of learning!

I wd have to agree with the parent below.It depends on the teacher you have.If you are not part of there little 'click' then what do you do?Mrs.Castelow had to be one of the worts princeables Ive met in the 10 years Ive dealt with the local schools.They really dont have alot of relax time that i thought first graders needed to be happy first graders.They stress to much on competing with each other for top school then let the kids fall thru the cracks.Mrs.Walters is a great kindergarten teacher.

It really depends on the teacher you get, like any other school. If you are not from this area, you may not fit into the 'local' click a few of the teachers and staff are in. They should have outgrown it by now but. . .you may want to request a new teacher from outside the area to help you and your child feel more at ease. The school stresses excellence to the point that our child had many discouraging set backs so speak up for your child. The librarian, Mr. Jones, is outstanding. Ask him to suggest books about your childs interests and at the right reading level to encourage reading. The school is lucky to have him. Kids are very proud and do better when they see you around the school volunteering and it's very 'cool' when your parents know the librarian.

My three children have went to North Buncombe for there entire school career, One is now in the Middle school and i have to say that these teachers are some of the greatest teachers. they challenge the children and make them feel very special. they are very concerned with physical fitness, making sure they are capable of the tasks required of there grade level and they keep you posted with teacher conferences throughout the school year, I am a proud parent of north buncombe elementary students and i am very proud of our school they go above and beyond in every aspect.
