Asheville Primary School

Asheville Primary School is Western North Carolina's newest Montessori school. As an Asheville City Schools elementary school, we are the only public Montessori school in the region. We opened in August 2017 with four classrooms: two Early Childhood classrooms and two Elementary I classrooms. We create intentionally designed environments to empower children to develop their own initiative and guide their own learning. For the 2018-2019 school year, we added additional classrooms at each level for a total of six classrooms.
