Castle north middle school does NOT offer leveled classes for students. If you come from "outside" the county or worse yet the state ... You child's previous achievements are null n void. They do not look at national test scores. My child has learned nothing the entire 6th grade yr. Only Excel students and 15 kids are allowed into honors programs... Even if you child has a 4.0 and identified from previous school system as gifted. Your child is placed on a path of normalcy... Learning how to get by vs being challenged to learn more. This school is an entire disappointment in every aspect!

I'm an 8th grader at castle north middle school and i have to say that i love this school all the teachers really care about the students are try very hard to make sure they know the subject there teaching also many of the teachers are nice and will happily engage in a conversation after class about the lesson for that day there are also many non required classes to take (band, music, art, industrial technology, enrichment, etc) there are also many after school clubs and sports obviously there are a few bullies but the school and teachers take a very serious approach to stopping it over all this school is very nice

The school is awesome. As expected there is one totally mean girl who just about everyone dislikes. She takes a great deal of joy out of bullying people and making my friends life miserable. Other than a few mean people the school is amazing. I have a lot of friends even though I only moved there half way through the year. The band is awesome and almost all the students and teachers are really nice. I just started 7th grade and I really like what were learning. :D

Castle JH is now Castle North MS. I'm a 6th grader there, and I wouldn't wish to be going anywhere else. I agree that this school has students who only care about money, and popularity. But the majority of the ppl are really sweet. I moved here from an evansville school and i cried my eyes out because of the rumors ppl told but now i know that they are not true. Sure theres problems but that is at every school. I luv my teachers! I'm also in band and some of my friends are in choir. The music program is phenominal. Dont listen to rumors. CNMS will rock ur socks!!! and exceed ur expectations. Put us up agianst any other MS. and you will find that our teachers, administrators, students, music program, and sports program are the best!!! and not to mention our amazing ISTEP score.

Castle jr high was evil for me as a student in 2005 to 2006. I thought it was just the whole jr high curse but this school really didn't do much for me. I have bad memories...and the students there weren't any better.

I was a student at Castle Jr. High and my brother is going to be one next year. The school is a great school! I feel blessed to have gone there. I was also involved in the music program and it is considered one of the best! I would definitely suggest going!

The Castle Elementary School was horrible. It's a very clique-like and buddy-buddy system. I basically had to home school my daughter the entire time she attended school there.

I absolutley love Castle Jr High! I love the classes, my friends, and the teachers. The friends that I have meet are amazing. So many funny things that happen. I sometimes even cry because I am laughing so hard. I just love the school. Castle Jr High provides fun, along with a great education. If you are thinking of enrolling your child in Castle Jr High, I would totaly do it. And dont worry about them not making friends. They will make friends. Trust me. If you want to ask me questions, feel free to e-mail me!

My child went to CJHS and with many attempts asking for help in a couple of her classes she never received it. This school is more a popularity school and how much money you have than concentrating on helping the children that are struggling. I had multiple unreturned calls from the counslors when I'd call to request help for my child. Come on where is the education?

I attend Castle Junior High and I just have to say, I am so blessed to be in this wonderful school with these amazing teachers who have such a wonderful perspective on life. I have made mistakes at Castle, and the mistakes that I have made, You would think that teachers would start to look at me different. But you know, its nothing like that! They see the things I have done as mistakes. and that is how it should be. because as a kid you make mistakes and as long as you learn from them, then everything will work out. Castle taught me that. I would strongly recommend castle! It is an amazing school! and what makes Castle what it is, is its teachers. becuase without them this school wouldnt be as spectacular as it is today.

This school offers a lot of opertunities for the students in a safe environment. The honors classes are very challenging. The music program appears to be very well supported.
