Buncombe County Schools is the name of the government body that oversees the public schools in Buncombe County, North Carolina. The members of the Board of Education are elected for four-year terms, and new members are elected every two years. The Buncombe County Schools System is the largest in Western North Carolina with over 26,000 students enrolled in 44 schools. It is also one of only 8 school districts in North Carolina to be accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.


The Board of Education consists of seven members. Bob Rhinehart is currently serving as the chairman of the board. Dr. Tony Baldwin has served the Board of Education as the school superintendent since 2009.

A separate entity from the Board of Education is the Buncombe County Schools Foundation. The foundation, which was founded in 1984, supports the schools and employees with volunteers and financial contributions.

This school system is divided into six districts: Enka, Erwin, North Buncombe, Owen, Reynolds, and Roberson. Within each school district there is one high school, one or two middle schools, and three to five elementary schools. Some districts also host an intermediate school, serving grades 5-6; in these districts, the middle school serves grades 7 and 8.

The system offers several alternative education settings. At the high school level, an Early College and a Middle College are housed on the campus of Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College (ABTech). Early College allows students to earn a high school diploma and associate degree simultaneously, while Middle College confers a high school diploma. Meanwhile, Community High School serves students with a history of attendance and/or discipline issues. Finally, the Progressive Education Program serves students with intellectual disabilities in age-appropriate settings at three sites: Estes Elementary, Valley Springs Middle School, and T.C. Roberson High School.
