Caston Junior/Senior High School is a great school. Since it is a very small school, I have many opportunities to be in many different activities. I can be in most of my classes with my close friends and even if they are not in one of my classes, I am still in a class with someone I know and get along with. The math department is very good. One of the math teaches has a 'flipped classroom,' so I am able to work ahead.

Overall it is a good school to attend. Everyone is well known and there are some great teachers who actually care about their students. There is only a small amount of diversity and most of the school is mostly white.
I really loved getting my high school education at Caston. Caston is a small, rural school of about 600 students K-12. I was able to contact my teachers directly and ask any questions that needed answered. I will also miss knowing everyone's name as I walk through the hallways. The only thing I wish Caston would improve is adding more students, to make the school flourish more.
