I love the fact the Castle Park High has the IB program, AP classes, and the SIA program. I think it is wonderful that students have more options in terms of the education they want to receive. I am currently in the IB program and I love my teachers. They are genuinely great teachers and they care about their students. My teachers support me in every way possible and are extremely encouraging. The administration also works very hard to keep a good atmosphere around the school. I would like for their school to change their dress code because I feel it alienates our female students. I also wish there was more recognition for educational achievement, instead of just sports. Overall, my experience at Castle Park High has been pretty great and I am ready to graduate.

I love my school because the campus provides a nice and suitable environment for students.The administrators are very professional along with the counselors who care about every student in the entire school.The school offers beneficial college preparation programs such as wahupa and they also offer numerous sport clubs like soccer, baseball, and swimming. They also provide programs for parents to inform them in what they need to do for their students in order to keep them on track for college.This school provides a great after school program in the library where interactive tutors help us with homework that we are stuck on.Overall I enjoyed my experience at castle park high, its one of the best in the district in my opinion.
My experience at Castle Park High School is excellent. Throughout my whole four years at this High School, I have to say that the college readiness and the staffs at the school is very active. This school puts an emphasis on success for students to go college and/or university to further their education. Resources and the Administration is very helpful for any problems that you may encounter and are very supportive. Academics is an importance at this school and offers programs such as AP/SIA/IB courses, which many other selection of classes to choose from.
