  • Gaston ranks again as safest large school district


    Once again, Gaston County Schools ranks as the safest large school district in North Carolina. Gaston’s school crime and violence rate of 3.740 is the lowest among the state’s ten largest school districts (based on student enrollment). Additionally, our rate is lower than the state rate for the seventh consecutive year, which shows that our on-going, concentrated focus on comprehensive school safety is paying off.
