Candler Elementary School is located in the Enka Community, just west of Asheville. We believe that a child's education is enhanced by a partnership between home, school, and community; by instruction focused on individual needs; and by a respect for personal strengths, talents, and cultural diversity. Through teamwork and high expectations, we provide an environment in which learning becomes a lifelong pursuit for students and staff. Our school has approximately 445 students, grades kindergarten through four.

Our dedicated staff seeks to find creative and innovative ways to engage, encourage and nurture our children.
