The teachers at Castro work tirelessly for their kids. Often teachers will stay till 5 or 6 at night because they are so committed to their students. Most kids are enthusiastic about learning and know that the staff of Castro really do care for them.

I am extremely grateful for the great work teachers do. Unfortunately I do not think the school has the best administration since they are losing excellent teachers with great experience in their work. Thanks Mrs. Pati o The best education is the key to the future of our children.

This school has amazing teachers, but one of the worst principals I have ever heard of. She is not supportive of her staff at all, in fact, she goes out of her way to belittle them. The turnover rate of her teachers says it all. Your child may excel here, but it will be because of the love of the teachers certainly not the leadership provided by the principal Cheri Wrench.

This school is a school of teachers and a principal (Mr. Gonzales was the best) who care about the education of the children! They have great programs during and after school to further learning. It is nice to see a school of teachers who are still there for the kids than other schools who think badly about kids now a days!!!
