North Buncombe High School is a public high school in Weaverville, North Carolina accommodating over 1000 students in grades 9–12. The school's mascot is the Black Hawk and the present school principal is Jack Evans.
North Buncombe High School was built after the decision to build larger schools and a $5.5 million bond that county voters approved. William B. Brackett designed the $658,000 building housing 600 students, which opened August 26, 1954 on 31 acres, the first to open under the new plan. Barnardsville, Flat Creek, Red Oak, French Broad High Schools became K-8 schools and Weaverville High School became Weaverville Middle School (grades 5-8). In 1987, a new school opened on the former site of Asheville-Weaverville Speedway. The old high school building then became North Buncombe Middle School.
