I live directly behind Evergreen School in east Asheville - and they play outside a lot. Especially in the Summer months - like all day with loud music blasting. I love it and it's awesome! Sure wish they did that at the elementary school my youngest attends - which is just down the road.
Keep in mind that Evergreen has a revolving wait list. When we moved here from the west coast in 2004 - the elementary school that our two older children went through (and now youngest currently attends) came highly recommended to us. I now know there are "better" ones in way of 'arts' but ours is highly - or highest ranked academically for the county. Friends of ours who moved here around the same time from the Bay Area actually pulled their daughter out of our school and put her in Claxton (AVL city school) for the Arts and more diversity if that tells you much or anything...
Hope this helps.
How is the neighborhood around Evergreen? Are there many parks?
