About the District

About the District

Asheboro City Schools is the perfect size community school system - large enough to offer students and staff many opportunities, yet small enough to know each other well.  We have approximately 4,500 students at five elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school.  We also have a five-star pre-kindergarten program and an alternative learning center for students who need a special setting to learn.  Our Board of Education believes in community schools and embraces the philosophy of small learning communities with a personal touch.  As our five elementary schools feed into our two middle schools, each student becomes a "Blue Comet" with a great sense of school pride and enthusiasm.  We enjoy tremendous community support and are fortunate to have a community that sets high expectations for our schools and our students.

*as of September 26, 2018


On March 6, 2005, Asheboro City Schools turned 100 years old. Our centennial brought many joyful reminders of all the ways this community supports and sacrifices on behalf of providing the best education possible for all its children.

As an outgrowth of our celebrations, we asked each school staff to prepare a brief history. While we would have benefited from more in-depth historical records, we were able to publish a special section to highlight just a few of the accomplishments and moments in history significant to Asheboro City Schools. We recognize many of the most special moments are held in the memories of our students, staff, parents and community, both past and present. 

It is amazing to look back at the many community leaders that impacted our school system in its early years and how their work still lives on today. Asheboro City Schools is fortunate to have a history of strong parent and community support and a tradition of seeking out proactive strategies to improve the quality of our students’ education.
