Principal - Mr. Danny Fusco

Fusco Greetings to the Oakley Elementary School community,
My name is Danny Fusco and I’m the proud Principal of Oakley Elementary School.  I feel very fortunate to be a part of our compassionate, diverse, artistic, and technology enriched learning community that truly works to serve the needs of students.  I believe in meeting the needs of the whole child and working as partners with our school families as we raise our children together in our school community of Oakley.

I began my public education career in 1999 as a 6th & 7th grade teacher at Asheville Middle School in the Asheville City Schools.  From 2003-2005 I served Asheville Middle as the school technology facilitator.  In August of 2005 I attained my Master’s Degree of School Administration from Western Carolina University.  Within Buncombe County Schools I have been the Assistant Principal for Avery’s Creek Elementary School (2005-2007); Cane Creek Middle School (2007-2011); and North Windy Ridge Intermediate (2011-2014).  In July of 2014 I was named as the Principal of Oakley Elementary.  I absolutely love the energy of our students and the dedication of our school faculty and staff.

Parents and families are welcome to contact me at the school’s telephone number (828-274-7515) or email  When you’re in the office, please stop in and say “hello.”  I look forward to partnering with you in the year ahead as we care for and grow our children together.
