If you are looking for a school that still has programs such as PE, Computers, Library, Art, Music, and foreign language this is it. Kids even learn cursive here. Awesome group of teachers who give it their 110%. You wont regret it. IB program is intellectually superior to rote memorization. Do your research and see how an IB private school will cost you 12,000 a year but here its equal access to all kids.
Great school! Our child is so motivated to learn and the staff are committed to helping every child in a way that brings out the best in them. You will have an acdemically advanced child that is well rounded socially too. Best choice ever to move our child to Castle Rock Elementary, great school with the best teachers!
It is a great school. My girl had been there for the past two years. I really like the IB program, it teaches my kid with a global thinking And positive attitudes. Teachers at this school are very sweet and Dedicated. I highly recommend this school to Any parent with young Children.
If you are looking for the best elementary school within the Walnut Unified School District, Castle Rock Elementary wins hands down! This is an IB School and you can see the enrichment from this education system flowing through the staff and the smiles from the parents, but most of all the happiness that show on each and every childs face! Learning has been made fun! The teachers work together as a team and support each other, and with a great Principal who really does care about helping and supporting your child, this really is the best foundation for your childs first experience of school. Great API scores and happy kids.
I love Castlerock Elementary !! My daughter has been a student there for the past three years and I am very pleased to see the academic and social progress she has made. This school is academically challenging, however is able to provide the students with numerous fun activities that motivate them to love going to school every day. The IB program is excellent and has helped my daughter become a very well rounded and socially responsible young lady. You always feel very welcome when you come on campus. It's a family atmosphere, parents are very involved with making this school a great place. Mrs. Brown is a great Principal who is supported by a staff of wonderful teachers !!
Love our principal Mrs. Brown and our IB coordinator Mrs. Vera. They are approachable and strong at the same time. It feels like a family here. I appreciate the blend of academics and IB attitudes such as respect, empathy, cooperation, and inquiry. The community club is organized, enthusiastic and diverse. The teachers here have alot of experience and knowledge.
Thank you to all staff and admininstration for caring about all our students. The time, energy and passion you put into the IB program is awesome. I would not trade this school for any other in any area!
