    Fantastic college prep and athletics programs and the school takes campus safety very seriously. I am grateful my daughter had such a Christ-centered education from 3rd through 12th grade at The Christian School at Castle Hills.

    The superintendent, Michael Pinkston, is the best school administrator and student advocate I have ever seen. He personally pours so much of his heart into each student!

    The only draw backs are the amount of gossip amongst high school teachers about students and families (in front of students) and lack of teaching, teacher feedback or response to parent inquiries in the Physics, AP History, AP Government and Economics classes. Based on recent conversations it sounds as though the class issues may be addressed in the 2018-2019 school year.

    Everyone is here is kind and caring. The students all care about each other and are very supportive of one another. The teachers also genuinely care about the success of their students. What sets us apart from the normal academic excellence that so many other schools strive to achieve is our service and faith. We are taught from the very beginning that our relationship with Christ and our service are what makes us different from other students. Our entire school has a focus on service to others, every class, club, sports team, and fine arts program does a service project. As our superintendent says, “If it exists, it serves”. Meaning that every class, club, team, and program here serves each other and our community.
    The Christian School at Castle Hills is a fantastic, small sized, christian school that offers a quality education at a fair price. Compared to the other, high end Private schools, Castle Hills is actually an affordable option compared to public schools. The school offers a family environment with great student to teacher relationships. The class sizes are small, ranging from 20 to 30 students depending on the grade level. Course options are limited compared to larger schools and the school does not live up to the name as a college preparatory school. No school is perfect and Castle Hills pro's definitely way out the cons.
