Castilleja School Reviews

Too good for words. Castilleja is an all-girls, friendly environment. In the classes, they don’t consist of a lot of students, so teachers can get one on one time with their students. The food is absolutely yummy! The tie ceremony is my favorite event! It means the start of a new and amazing year here at Casti. I attended the camps as a CILT (Counselor In Leadership Training), and it is super fun! Castilleja is a tightly knit community, and almost everyone knows the other people in their year! I love Castilleja School, and when I graduate, will miss it forever.

I possibly can’t explain this in less than 1,000 characters. I am a junior at Casti, and this is the best school in my opinion. Since both my parents work, I stay in the library,finish my homework, and read, or go make something in the Bourn Lab. My bday was a few days ago and my friends decorated my locker and surprised me! So fun! Did you know the history teacher is Dr.Doctor? She is super nice, like all the teachers. Don’t get me started on the food. It is absolutely delicious. Castilleja is an amazing school with great learning and leading systems, and great fun.
Ok, here goes. CASTILLEJA IS THE BEST SCHOOL EVER! I absolutely love this school. I entered as a 6th grader 2 years ago and am now in 8th grade. The food is super good, and so is dessert. After school, you are even free to explore the campus sometimes! The librarian is super nice and helpful. She always helps find the right books for me. Everyone there is really nice! I know people have said that Castilleja has a lot of bullying, but really, they don’t. I am not even white, but Casti has so far been a great experience for me, with rigorous academics, and amazing leadership! GO GATORS!
