•  Welcome and Thanks for Visiting our Website!  On behalf of the faculty and staff, it is my pleasure to welcome to you Mars Hill Elementary School. We are excited about the year ahead and look forward to many successful and productive experiences in learning. Our goal is to work together to provide every child with the best education possible.  Mars Hill Elementary serves approximately 500 students in Kindergarten through 5th grade.  I feel very fortunate to be the principal at Mars Hill Elementary and look forward to serving the teachers, students, parents and Mars Hill Community.  Each day I am amazed at the quality of the staff at Mars Hill as they are a very energetic, dynamic and innovative group. 
    I am a Madison County native, graduate of Madison High School and being named Principal at Mars Hill is like coming home for me since I attended Mars Hill Elementary as a student.  I began my career with Asheville City Schools as a high school science teacher and then transitioned into school administration as Assistant Principal at Madison High.  The following year I transferred back to Madison Middle as Assistant Principal where I served for four years.  I learned a lot and value the experiences I have had in each of these positions.  My philosophy continues to be student and teacher centered.

    We hope that you get involved in the activities of our school and we look forward to working with you!
    Please feel free to email me, dmetcalf@madisonk12.net, call or stop by and visit.                       

    Expect the Best...Be "Pawsome"   Again, thanks for visiting and Go Wildcats!
