The Board of Education has approved a series of recommendations related to plans for new schools in Gaston County. The recommendations include building a new elementary school in west Gastonia and a new middle school in Stanley; establishing a new elementary school magnet program at Hawks Nest Intermediate School; and appointing a task force to study options for a new Career and Technical Education (CTE) high school.
Months of research, strategizing and some big bets paid off for a team of students at Highland School of Technology, who recently beat out nearly 1,000 other teams in the state to earn second place in the Fall 2014 Stock Market Game sponsored by the North Carolina Council on Economic Education.
When David Landrum first volunteered as a Gaston County Schools mentor, he was introduced to a boy who was almost too shy to come out of the kindergarten classroom. Today, that once-timid student is a more confident and talkative eighth grader, who is looking forward to high school and thinking about what to do after graduation.
