School Information

Welcome to Cane River Middle School! We are located in beautiful Western North Carolina near the Blue Ridge Parkway and Mt. Mitchell State Park. Cane River serves students in grades 6-8. We offer a wide variety of extra-curricular activities including sports programs, clubs, and the MAGIC after school program.

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.
