Montford North Star Academy is a new addition to the Asheville City Schools system. The magnet theme is STEAM which technically stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. However, similar to the North Carolina STEM Center, we also view it as "Strategies That Engage All Minds." A rigorous Project Based Learning and a constructivist methodology are vital components of our curriculum.
We are in our second year of existence serving 6th and 7th grade for the 2018-2019 school year. Eigth grade will be phased in for the 2019-2020 school year.
