About Hall Fletcher Elementary

Hall Fletcher Elementary, located at 60 Ridgelawn Road, in addition to being Asheville’s smallest public elementary school and a magnet school for science, math, and technology, serves the highest proportion of minority, low-income, and special-needs students of any school in the city.

Here at Hall Fletcher Elementary, we are a learning community built around personal discovery using the methods of math, science, and technology. Not just technology as novelty, but as technology appropriate to the changing world our students inherit. More than anything else, it means that the sense of wonder and curiosity that underlies those three drives the methods by which we challenge our students to learn. The Science Notebooks that our students carry throughout their time here provide these methods: Question; Predict; Observe and take Data; Draw Conclusions. Built on wonder and curiosity, carried through with rigor, experienced with joy.
