    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.

    I have been going to Castle Hills since I was in the 8th grade. At first it was difficult to adapt but I eventually made great friends with people who I consider to be my family. The school is full of friendly faces who are willing to help, especially the students in the Student Ambassador program. Having said that I would like to see some changes in some of the teachers and administrators. There are a few people who make some of the students feel targeted whether that's with their tone of voice or actions towards the students. Also CHS has "tribes" (aka kids from 7th-12th grade in one group). If I am being completely honest they are so pointless. On paper I see how it works but in reality it just doesn't. When doing activities some groups cheat, students merge themselves into other groups, or the tribe itself just doesn't like being with each other (meaning no one wants to get to know one another). I think tribes should be based on class. Overall I think castle hills is excellent.
    I attended Castle Hills for my 4 years of high school. In the beginning, the school was pretty great & helped me grow as a person. During Junior & Senior year I think it went down the drain. The teachers are a mix of good & bad. Some are amazing and you'll grow close to them, & others can be rude, passive-aggressive, or burned out. The admin is really frustrating at times. Sometimes it feels like they apply policies & rules to certain students but not others + they're really good at invalidating your concerns or feelings.

    The academics are fine, definitely not "college prep". You're only offered basic classes. You're typically stuck with one route, AP or regular, so that makes it hard to branch out & take a mix of each. There aren't really a lot of "clubs" or organizations that you can join.

    I'm running out of characters but I just wanted to add that the College Prep class Junior year is the biggest joke & waste of time, the teacher knew barely anything!!
