  • Highland Receives Grade of A+

    Highland School of Technology had the highest proficiency among the high schools (grades 9-12) in Gaston County. Highland with 98.8 percent is among the top scores in the state for student proficiency.  Highland received an A+ performance grade and had a significant increase in proficiency with +5.3 points. The School Performance Grades are intended to make it easier for the public to understand how a school is performing. However, only select criteria are used to determine the grade. Factors such as school size, diverse student population, socioeconomics, teacher experience, student learning obstacles, special programs, and parental and community involvement have an effect on a school’s performance, but are not considered in the grade.
