We moved to this area in 2004. My children have attended all three schools in the district. I have had good and bad experiences with all of the schools. Overall though, I would recommend Newcastle High school over all the other public schools in the surrounding areas. I do agree there is far too much emphasis placed on the athletic department and some of the counselors, teachers and staff are less than stellar. I would also like to see more non-athletic associations and arts programs. Nonetheless, just as I said before I would still recommend this district over the surrounding areas. More specifically OKC, Moore, Norman, Tuttle, & Blanchard.

I've gone to Newcastle my entire life, I can't imagine going to school any where else. Newcastle is small enough to know almost everyone but large enough to not drive you crazy! The teachers are amazing and most of the students are respectful and extremely intelligent. When I graduate and get my degree in Teaching I can only hope I can come back to where my roots are and start a family of my own here. Go RACERS!

The principal is awesome and the teachers are really nice. Sports are a little over emphasized but the school system is defiantly improving it's academics and trying to mack a really positive environment.

The high school is good but athletics are another thing all together. The athletics are far too political for anyone who is just moving in to the district. If I had the chance to do it over I would not allow my child to participate in anything but regular classes.

This school is considered a good school by some, but when I went there a few years ago it didnt offer very many classes. It's so much more focused on sports.

I most also echo that parent involvement is considered 'butting-in' in High School here. In elementary is is definitley encouraged, but High School is another story. My child is an athlete but if she were not she would without a doubt be on the 'out'. Everything focuses on athletics and less on academics. The counseling is certainly not up to standard. The options in which they do not have are dissappointing. Spanish is the only second language, there is no drama, no debate team, nothing except the average mandatory class and athletics. Very disappointing.

The academics of the lower grades are second to none. They provide great support for the students and offer many educational opportunities. However, at the higher level grades, academic classes are lacking as well as minimal counseling available. If your child is athletic, then they will excel. Somehow, the ones who just want a quality education seem to get lost in the shuffle. The math program is extremely lacking, and I have found that correspondence courses are your only option for advancement. Parents are discouraged from being involved at the higher levels, as it is considered 'butting-in' on the teacher's business. If I had it to do all over again, I surely would not have moved into this system.

Newcastle Schools are the best in the area. All of the class', teachers and activities are 2nd to none. There are no gangs and the students get along great. this school system promotes good values to all students. the principals work well with the students and parents. tutoring is available if needed and they also offer special education and LD class'.

The school is awesome. Its advanced classes are great! without a doubt this is the best school my children have had. There is no tolerance for bullying, or fighting. The teachers give free tutoring free of charge! the sports are great and the students help each other out through tough times. They accept each other and get along fine. Teachers treat students fairly and equaly with a loving heart.

The educational opportunities are very limited in course availability. The counseling services are sub-standard with little parental involvement. While the athletics at the school are second to none for football, softball, and basketball the academics fail to meet minimal standards for the educational development of the student.
