About Us

Welcome to Black Mountain Elementary

Black Mountain Elementary is nestled deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains, 15 miles East of Asheville. We are a 4th and 5th grade school of about 160 students. We are a part of the Owen District of Buncombe County Schools.

Black Mountain Elementary, in shared responsibility with family and community, is committed to inform, inspire, and empower all students to become lifetime learners. We believe students learn best when they are actively engaged in their own learning through an integrated curriculum and instructional practices that incorporate differences in learning styles enabling students to make connections. Our goal is to prepare all students to realize their potential in a rapidly changing, diverse, global society.
