Cramerton Middle School1

I love the school but on the other hand there are a couple of teachers there that like to call the students out in class and embarrass them because they have missed days of school. There are other teachers that question why they have been out of school and then say they are lying. I personally do not think it is any of the teachers business why they are missing school and if the teacher has a problem they should take it up with the parents and not take it out on the students.
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.
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.
