Our Vision


Buncombe County Schools’ students will reach their full potential and become successful, responsible citizens in a diverse, global society


Each student enrolled in Buncombe County Schools is following an educational path that is unique and special. This path to the future in a diverse and global society is filled with choices and experiences. Instructional Services aim to support each student to handle every twist and turn of his or her educational journey. Our goal is to support every student on his or her pathway to success.

Instructional Services support core academic and enrichment programs designed to provide innovative learning experiences for students both inside and outside of the classroom. Each academic area is led by a curriculum specialist. Please contact the curriculum specialist for further information.
