I really love the amount of support and assistance that the faculty provides! The school has a lot of school spirit and we celebrate even the smallest accomplishments. I love the school assemblies and the activities and performances that go on during them. I really can't think of a complaint! This school is truly amazing and gives each and every student the same opportunities regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or social class!

Castle High School is a rare school that puts academics before anything else. Teachers at Castle, for the most part, show that they want to make a connection with his or her students. A lot of teachers are willing to go above and beyond to help those who are struggling and decide to seek help. There is a lot of variety to choose from but the guidance counselors help you plan out your path of courses. A lot of opportunities are given to all different kinds of students. I really love the motto, "Learn today so you can lead tomorrow," which is said over the intercom every morning. It's a very empowering school and the overall experience I've had due to the education standards as well as emphasis on serving the community make Castle High School a wonderful place to be. So much so that I hope to come back one day as a teacher!
When began going to Castle, the biggest plus I noticed is that the teachers are absolutely amazing. Very patient and understanding. There have only been like 1 or 2 teachers I have ever had trouble learning from. The personable and interactive teachers. The administration is incredibly nice. Although, I may complain, I am fortunate to go to a school with so many opportunities and get a high level of education. The school is quite big which makes it harder at times to get involved cause there are so many large groups involved. Other than that, Castle High School is a school I am lucky I have gotten to go to.
