I am a parent and this past school year my daughter had a really hard and intimitating year with her teacher. The lady principal was unfriendly and the teacher had favorites. This school is flat out plain horrifying!

I agree leadership by teachers and the principal is not that great. We were happy with the new principal, but Ohh deseption more of the same, she went only to one, maybe two meetings .And it's rigth too much favoritism with other teachers children. I'm a parent.

Yes I think castaneda is a great school. The teachers work with not just the child but also the parent. I am sorry but teachers don't favor other teachers children. I am a parent

I'm very disappointed in the school. Mr. Guerra has shown a lack of leadership and the teachers are not at all interested in the students. The students have no respect skills and the teachers seem to put up with it. The PTA meetings are always a disaster.
