PLEASE BE AWARE: Watauga County is divided into 8 elementary public school attendance areas and one public high school. Students are assigned according to state law to the school serving their grade level in the attendance area in which the student is domiciled. "Domiciled" is defined as where the student lives with his or her parent(s) or court appointed guardian.
