My nephew attends first grade at Castlebay. He likes going to school and finds it challenging. He scored well on his CAT 6 scores. I wish the school had a gate program for second grade.
My son went to this school for first and second grade. In the first grade,the school informed me that they will test him for gifted test on my request and then they said that none of the first graders will be tested. In the second grade,the teacher was extremely impressed with his math skills(he would correct the teachers math mistakes)so she asked for the psychological test for gifted. He passed it and the teacher said he should go to a gifted class.Unfortunately,this school does not have a class for only gifted kids and per her advice,he would not be challenged in a regular class. I had to change his school for the third grade in order for him to go to a honors class. If he was tested in first grade,i could have done so for the second grade.
Castlebay is a great school with an excellant teaching staff. My daughter left private school and entered this public school in the 5th grade. The curriculum was on a par with her private school and the family atmosphere helped her to make a seamless entry. Even though the principle left mid-year, the school didn't miss a beat.
This school is by far in the top three in the valley! The parents and teachers help together to make this school as exceptional as it is!
