  • East Gaston is a Great School but like all other schools it has problems. The problems are no worse or different than any other high school in the county. I am a graduate of East Gaston, my husband is a Graduate of East Gaston and our daughter is also a Proud Graduate of East Gaston High School. We would never want my kids going to or graduating from any other High School.

  • I graduated from E.G. and when I was there it was a A++ school. But over time just as it is at other schools there is a discipline problem with many of the kids. However this is not due to the teachers or principal of the shcool. It is just lack of respect. There needs to be more emphasis on respect not just here but at all schools and of course home. E.G. could be a A++ school again if the kids will just make the effort.

  • it's what we were always looking for all our friends, no bills & free rent. only now, this old sayin, makes sense; you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink
