CHS Student Services

Located in the heart of the beautiful Swannanoa Valley, Community High School is a public alternative 9-12 high school. CHS serves all six Buncombe County School districts. By offering a reduced-credit diploma, CHS empowers students to reach their academic goals with an alternative pathway to graduation.

The name “Community” says it best: Small class sizes, excellent teacher-student ratios, rich community partnerships, and flexible yet rigorous instruction create a nurturing learning environment that supports students’ needs and prepares them for both academic and personal success.

If you would like to find out more about the school, what makes it alternative, what makes it different than the traditional high school, please reach out to your school counselor or social worker at your base school.
