The Final Count Down!

As we are nearing the end of the school year, we have two opportunities for you to give feedback regarding our school. One is the Title 1 Survey (see links below) and another one is the Buncombe County Parent Survey (see links below). We highly encourage you to complete these surveys. This information is used for school programming decisions.


Thank you for your continued support of NBES! Our students are growing, learning and succeeding at North Buncombe Elementary!

BCS Surveys

Each year Buncombe County Schools county leadership surveys all stakeholders asking for feedback. Below are the links to the parent version of this survey. You are encouraged to complete this survey for NBES. If you have a child who attends another BCS School, then please complete a different survey for that child/school.


Thank you for completing this survey! We appreciate your time!
