My initial rating of GCP many years ago was a higher than it is now. My children no longer attend there, but I still have relatives that do. I am a former employee and a former parent. Through the years the school has changed a lot. The school is still competitive, but the public schools have stepped up their standards and teaching goals also. It comes down to personal choice. The bottom line is that ALL children everywhere needs to receive a good education.
I am a grandparent and I have observed how well my grandchildren are learning and enjoying this first year at Kipp high school. I love the dedication of the teachers and they really push all the children toward gaining knowledge. I so appreciate this school.
Gaston College Prep is a great school because of the wonderful and dedicated staff. The hard working students. It provides students with enrichment, exposure do things some students will not get the chance to experience. It gives students the chance to become more responsible and look to a bright and better future for themselves.
This school has made quite a difference in my children. One is very independent and the other is less so. Both have found what they need at the school. The independent child has found the challenges he needs. My other child has developed the vocabulary and thought processes to increase her self-expression and indepedence. I also like the teacher's broad range of backgrounds. My children enjoy their school experience.
