Castilleja School Reviews

I've worked in education for over 20 years as a teacher, researcher, and online course developer. My work has allowed me to meet education experts and film in classrooms across the country. I picked Castilleja for my daughters because it's the best school I've ever seen. The teachers are excellent and engaging, and the administration is both caring and research-driven. I'm thrilled my daughters get to attend this school!
Review Castilleja School
My Castilleja experience prepared me so well for college and life -- the teachers are amazing and care so much about the students! I'm so glad I spent 7 years with such smart, caring, and dedicated women.
Our daughter absolutely loves the school: the teachers, school traditions and the all girls environment. The teachers are top notch and dedicated, make learning fun and exciting (well, almost all). Definitely the focus on developing smart, confident women leaders in addition to being an excellent academic environment make it the reason why our daughter choose this school and why intends to spend the next 3 1/2 years till she graduates.

If there is one thing I would see different, it would be a stronger high school science program. What I have seen so far makes me believe it can be better and the science curriculum would be more challenging.
