Welcome to Davidson River school

For over 20 years, Davidson River School has served high school students in Transylvania County with an alternative, individualized, and caring approach. We offer creative, flexible educational environments and delivery methods for academic growth without compromising the core curriculum, testing, and standards held by the other county high schools.

In 2021,  Davidson River officially completed a two-year journey to becoming a  “Trauma-Skilled School” through the National Dropout Prevention Center. With this approach, we have seen an increase in graduation rates and test scores, and we are one of only three Trauma-Skilled Schools in North Carolina. Trauma-skilled educators use a specific language and approach to meet students where they are and guide them toward academic success. Additionally, much work is done with students to heal trauma (which negatively affects learning) and build resilience.
