New Castle Area School District Reviews

I enjoy New Castle a lot, but there are many things I believe could happen to make the school a better place for the students. First off, I believe SAT prep should start at a young age, not in 11th grade. (which for most people is the year they take them) I also think the school should be more disiplined on the students, kids get away with a lot more than they should. Finally, I think New Castle should force you to take harder classes the base classes are to easy. There are to many intelligent kids taking pre-algebra in 10th grade. Overall I really do enjoy my school, it is not perfect but it definitely has taught me a lot and I’m thankful to have grown up a red hurricane!

New castle was a very friendly environment. The teachers were very helpful and made sure i was prepared for anything. They are caring and will try to do anything they can for their students. New castle could use updated lunches, but other than food everything was great!
I am an New Castle Senior High School graduate class of 2005. My experience with the High school was a very good experience. Their academics levels and involvement with sports is tremendous.! if i still lived in the area i would highly recommend that my children get involved and attend the school. In that school your most likely to find more than one teacher that is very involved in their students education and to help them further their education. The resources that New Castle school offers to students is very helpful. My rate for New Castle Senior High School overall would be a 10.
