I am a former student at this school I went on to The highland school of technology. The biggest advantage of this school would be in the Teachers Cramerton has an excellent 7th grade math and science program, With teachers going above and beyond to ensure a life long love of learning in the students. However there have been problems in the past with less than professional teachers I personaly had problems with a gym teacher who is no longer teacher over said problems. As well as a history teacher who left 4classis with no teacher 6 weeks before final exams. In addressing the biggest problem with Cramerton Middle one need only look at the administration who are intolerant of new ideas from students, parents, and teachers alike. And consider Students with active investigative minds as threats to there career who must be contained and controlled. They also appear to be incapable of hiring new teachers as the only ones who were capable of teaching have been teachers in Gaston county before Cramerton started and were moved at the start of the school by the district.

I wrote a negative comment along with a short paragraph explaining the reasons. It was never posted. I wonder why?...

Cramerton Middle is one of the elite middle schools of Gaston County. It serves a large student body. Students are challenged and encouraged to do their best. The teachers are excellent and truly care about students. The principal has been really effective in bringing 21st century technology to the school. Most, if not all, classrooms have Smartboard technology. The arts programs are strong--particularly the band and chorus. Sports programs are pretty good too. Cramerton has one up on many of the other schools in Gaston County.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
