Magnet School Information Night

Our first Magnet School Information Night is happening at Asheville Middle School tomorrow, Wednesday, January 8th from 6:00 - 8:00 PM. 

It will be the perfect time to meet each of our elementary school principals, hear a brief description about what makes our schools so special and learn more about the enrollment process.

Plus, thanks to our Transportation Staff, we’ll be offering FREE bus rides both to and from the Information Night.

Any student, parent, guardian or sibling will be able to ride at no charge!

Two buses from the Emma Bus Line will be making their way around Downtown Asheville, Merrimon/North Asheville, Montford, Kenilworth and West Asheville beginning at 5:00 PM. 

You’ll know it’s the correct bus because it’ll say “Asheville City School Magnet Information Night” in the window.
