This place is absolutely the most stuck up, unwelcoming, bible-thumping town I have ever seen.
There is hardly any diversity in the school system. The amount of times I have seen my fellow classmates cry because some teen from local church who doesn't understand that diversity is okay said something abhorrent about their race, sexuality, or religion (or lack thereof) is just sickening. I'm a Christian and my whole family goes to church in Mustang because we can't take it.
All this place consists of is gas stations, churches, and fast food restaurants, which provides jobs for the teenagers, but about two thirds of the adults are out of luck. Just about every adult (that is, those that don't work at the school) work out side of the town and has to commute.
As for affordability, we had high property taxes to begin with, and then it sky rocketed even more after we backed out on a bond issue.
I graduate in May, and I can't wait to get out.

When I first came to Newcastle as a child I loved the school because everyone was friendly which is a lot better than Oklahoma city schools. I even graduated from Newcastle high school. I am also forced to not be open to my own beliefs and opinions because it is uncomfortable for me. I wish the town would change how football and churches are more important than getting an education there. I also wish that most of community that lives that there are other people with different beliefs instead of Christianity.
I liked how Newcastle is a small town. Newcastle is not very far from the city either. Everyone in Newcastle is close and the whole community always has one another's back.
