All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

This school is full of bright kids and the teachers are wonderful! Kids here strive to do their very best and most of all it has a 100% graduation rate, the highest around too!

I went to Highland for all four years of high school and I graduated in 2008. Overall as a school, it is without a doubt the best high school in Gaston County. I know that a lot of high schools are trying to copy us and add programs like the medical program but Highland is still the best. We may not have had the best sports teams but we definitely had the best atmosphere. I'd say it's the cleanest school in Gaston County and while on a very very rare occasion is there a disturbance, we are the best behaved high school in the county. I only have one complaint and that is the Health Academy. In my senior year (07-08) it was horrible. Dental had lost their ability to accredit. Our coordinator was doing a horrible job and I'm going to have to continue this in a new review.

It is a joy to teach at Highland. 98% of our parents are supportive and work with us as a team. Our students are creative, fun, interested, and at times - exhausting! LOL.

I am very impressed with Highland School of Technology in Gastonia, NC. The teachers there are so enthusiastic about teaching the kids... and it shows through their personalities, the way their classrooms look and are handled, the way they treat the kids (with respect), and especially how they teach. My daughter loves this school... where it is an 'actual' place of learning... no fights... no disrespect... just learning and good friendships with other students and teachers. This school's first priority is academic (rather than sports or any other agenda). Last year (2007-2008), Highland had a 100 percent graduation rate... the only one in the state. Hooray for Highland!

Highland is a great school with great teachers! Small class sizes, teachers that care, and involved parents all make this school a great place to go. I highly recommend it because of the demanding academic standards it sets for its students and the high level of integration with technology.
