New Castle Community School Corporation Reviews
My experience at New Castle High School was overall an average high school experience. I was involved in a few extra curricular activities such as marching band, indoor percussion, and the PEER mentor program and I had a ton of fun and success with those activities. As for the academics, it was your average high school experience. The material was standard to the Indiana curriculum with some fun projects to go with it. Some teachers were better than others in both teaching and personal connections with students. Overall, I was satisfied during my years at New Castle.
This school has great teachers, but the resources and funding for things that actually matter are practically nonexistent. If you’re looking for good sports teams the school is ok, but the coaches don’t necessarily choose teams fairly. Many times the athletes chosen are related to someone well known in the community and have more opportunities than other students. As for school environment, classrooms, libraries, and computer labs are average. Student resources could use some updating, but all in all they suffice and helped me get into a good college.
I had a pretty good experience with New Castle High School. Most of the teachers are very helpful and passionate. I've had many excellent teachers that are willing to help students in and outside of the classroom. There are a select few, however, that definitely need improvement. I think the school could do a better job of paying attention to what parents and students want. For example, many of the students said they would benefit from having handheld paper agendas instead of online agendas to keep track of their assignments and important dates. The school did not listen to what students said and continued to use the online form of the agenda. Very few of the students used the online version and many (including myself) went out and bought their own. I think if that if New Castle High School began to work on small things like this, their students and their parents would be happier.
