We look forward to showing you all of the unique programs and people that make our school the best choice for your child.  

Johnston is centrally located in West Asheville.  We are a small, community school with a culturally diverse enrollment. As a staff, we know our "Why" for choosing Johnston and work by the motto: "Love them, Know them, Grow them" every day.  We are a compassionate school who strives to meet our students where they are and grow them both academically and emotionally.  We believe in the growth mindset.  Our students are engaged daily in core academics as well as weekly instruction in  PE, Music, Art, Media and Content/STEM.
