Fifty-six students from Gaston County Schools will attend the James S. Forrester Commissioners’ School of Excellence June 14-26 at Belmont Abbey College. The school is a unique, two-week summer residential learning experience for rising tenth graders in Gaston County.
With wireless internet access at all schools and Chromebooks, iPads and SMART Boards in nearly every classroom, Gaston County Schools is leading the way in using technology for teaching and learning. But whether students are using touchscreens or keyboards in the classroom, the skill of reading remains vitally important, which is why the library is still the heart of the school.
Gaston County Schools hosted the annual National Technical Honor Society induction ceremony on Tuesday, April 21 at the Highland School of Technology. The program honored approximately 300 high school students, who are enrolled in Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs, for their outstanding academic achievement.
