The principal is the best, and she has brought the best teachers with her to this new school! Parent involvement is low; however, the parents who are involved are amazing!!
THIS IS MY SONS 1ST YR (K) A PTA PARENT & VOLUNTEER AM VERY HAPPY .. THEY ARE A NO TOLERANCE SCHOOL & ARE COMPASSIONATE . IT IS A STRICT SCHOOL WHICH I BELIEVE IN THIS AGE NEED TO BE. I SEE SO KIDS LOOKING FOR ATTENTION IN A NEGATIVE WAY BUT WHEN REINFORCED IN A POSSITIVE WAY THEY ARE LOVING IT AND GIVE YOU RESPECT AND CARRY IT OUT TO HOME AND THE PARENTS LOVE IT. THE TEACHERS TEACH DIFFICULT THINGS TO PREPARE OUR KIDS FOR THE FUTURE AS THEY ARE THE NEXT GENERATION.. I LOVE THE STAFF ALL OF THEM. I HIGHLY SUGGEST OUR SCHOOL TO ANY PARENT FOR THEIR CHILDREN. THE SECURITY TO CHECK YOUR CHILD IN AND OUT AND ENTER THE SCHOOL IS AMAZING SOME PARENTS FIND IT OFFENSIVE BUT WITH ALL WE SEE HAPPENING IN THIS WORLD OUR KIDS ARE SAFE AND WE KNOW ONLY WE OR AN APPROVED FAMILY OR FRIEND CAN RELEASE IF NEEDED.. I LOVE THE SPECIALS THEY HAVE FOR THE KIDS JONNY LOVES HIS MUSIC AND PE I LOVE ART AND MS GRAMP. TO BE APART OF THE LIBRARY WITH MS KIRBY IS VERY REWARDING TO ME AND TO BE ABLE TO HELP WITH THE READING IS WONDERFUL. IN THE FUTURE I WOULD LOVE TO SEE MORE PARENTS GET INVOLVED BECAUSE I SEE HOW JONNY LOVES MY BEING THERE AS HE WORKS SO HARD TO MAKE ME AND HIS TEACHERS PROUD OF HIM.....
Both of my children have been thrilled with their NEW school in Castle Hayne. The teachers, staff, and principal have worked so hard in creating a wonderful learning environment over the last two years since the school opened. The technology they are exposed to daily is unmatched by any other school in the county. There are also strong art and music programs. I would not hesitate to recommend Castle Hayne Elementary School to anyone who is looking for a challenging and caring environment for their student.
