  • Career Academy at Hunter Huss High School


    The Gaston County Board of Education plans to establish a new Career Academy at Hunter Huss High School.


    The Career Academy will combine an intense focus on academics in the core subject areas with opportunities to explore a variety of career fields.


    In addition to receiving career training on the Hunter Huss campus, students will be able to take advantage of programs through our Career and College Promise partnership with Gaston College.


    The Career Academy program is a result of input from our Career and Technical Education (CTE) Oversight Committee, business leaders, parents, and the community to provide more professional training options for our students.


    Career and Technical Education programs like the Career Academy at Hunter Huss make it possible for students to take rigorous academic classes and career-oriented classes that concentrate on job training. Students have the opportunity to gain valuable professional experience through specialized programs, internships, industry certification, and workforce credentials.


    Hunter Huss will begin the transition from an International Baccalaureate School to the Career Academy so students can take advantage of the excellent academic and career options during the 2016-2017 academic year.


    We are very excited about the new Career Academy. It will be a dynamic program that provides many academic and career-focused possibilities for our students at Hunter Huss High School.

  • Graduating seniors visit kindergarten teacher

    Twelve years ago, W.A. Bess Elementary School kindergarten teacher Jill Nichols was honored as the Gaston County Schools Teacher of the Year. This year, the students from that class are graduating, and Nichols is retiring after a 30-year career in teaching. The students she first taught as 5- and 6-year-olds reunited at W.A. Bess Elementary one recent morning, where they visited with Nichols and reminisced about their time together, recreated their class yearbook photo and described how their journey to graduation began on the learning rug in Nichols’ classroom.
