"Why fit in when you were born to stand out."--Dr. Suess

Cane River Middle School is located about 3 miles west of Burnsville, NC, in beautiful Yancey County.  
Yancey County is the home of Mt. Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Mississippi River.

Cane River opened its doors in 1958 as Cane River High School, one of two high schools in the county. In 1976, Yancey County consolidated the two high schools, Cane River and East Yancey, into Mountain Heritage High School.  The two high schools were then turned into two middle schools.

 Mission Statement
Cane River Middle School strives to provide a safe and nurturing environment to
help all students achieve their full potential as life long learners and global citizens.
