Castlewood High School has great teachers that show interest in each of their students. They genuinely care about the students' success and push students to do their best. They are always willing to help students outside of class. The teachers are also involved in extra-curricular activities and clubs. My teachers have provided me with a great education. I feel that I am prepared for college, because I know that I have received a quality education.

I love that Castlewood is small. I get a lot of one-on-one help from the teachers, and I have made really great friends. In a small school, you get to know everybody in every grade. There are a variety of activities and classes for students with every interest, including NHS, chess club, band, choir, art, yearbook, sports, play, etc. If I had to do it all over again, I could still choose Castlewood. I have received a quality education, but I have also had fun and have made great friends along the way.
There are a variety of extracurricular activities and organizations including sports, chess, NHS, TEAMS, all-school play, one act play, band, choir, and yearbook. There is a lot of support for each activity. People that are involved usually show commitment. The activities are fun, and there is a lot of staff involvement as well.
