About Us

Henderson County is located in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. The Henderson County Public Schools Administrative Office (828) 697-4733, is located on 414 Fourth Avenue West in the city of Hendersonville. Hendersonville is located approximately 20 miles from Asheville, North Carolina.

The county of Henderson is called a typical mountain county, because it consists of these elements: mountain ranges, isolated peaks, a rolling plateau and level valley areas. Elevations range from 1400 feet near Bat Cave at the foot of the Blue Ridge, to 5000 feet on Little Pisgah.

In 1993 Henderson County Schools merged with the Hendersonville City Schools to form the Henderson County Public Schools.  The Henderson County Public Schools is now comprised of four school districts (East, Hendersonville, North, and West). We have a total of 23 schools; 13 elementary schools, 4 middle schools, 4 high schools, 1 education center, and 1 early college high school. The student population has grown to over 13,500.  Our teaching staff is over 900.  With approximately 1700 employees, the Henderson County Public Schools is the largest employer in Henderson County.
