I have both my boys in Castle Hills and they love it. I have always had great communication with the teachers, nurses and assistant principal when needed. I have never had a hard time getting ahold of anyone. We love the year around schedule, and all the teachers my boys have had are very posistive and patient and always willing to help when my kids didnt understand something or if I wanted to discuss something. I plan to keep my boys there until they make the transisiton to middle school.

Castle Hills Elementary School has given our children a very positive and outstanding education. They love it here, especially the year round schedule. From the principal to the cleaning crew. All have a very caring attitude. I really appreciate the parent involvement.

My daughter has really enjoyed castle hills elementary as opposed to the last school she attended.My only concren with the school was trying to get tutoring provided early on in the school year .I felt they only offered tutoring once taks testing was near.This test really stinks and puts so much pressure on the students.

This will be our last year and we love our school. I dont understand the other bad reviews maybe parents need to participate more in there childs education. Our family has had wonderful years here and now we are moving to the next level, middle school. We love the staff and the new principal too. All the teachers are just wonderful even the ones our child never had. Great school filled with awesome parents that participate all the time. Go Road Runners!

Very poor communication between principal and parents. I'm withdrawing my son and take him to another school.

I hate how the school pays little to no attention to children with special needs and are slow to test for any LD's. Not only that but trying to get a hold of anyone at that school is near impossible and they are very slow to respond. The Assistant VP is also a real piece of work with little regard for families needs. I withdrew my son to homeschool him, that is how horrible it was!!

Very poor communication between principal, vice principal, couselors, teachers and parents. Any issue concerning students is quickly brushed off as a problem with the student. Concern for student progress or degress is also addressed as a problem with the student. Principal avoids any meetings with parents regarding teacher issues and strict refusal to move students to different teachers even with this move is in the students best interest is the norm. Unfortunately, this new principal has moved this school from being all about the kids with a productive and inspiring environment into a very average school with the only concern being that she is happy and not that the children move on in life to love learning and are inspired to grow in their education.

Through parent involvement in our Academic Enrichment Committee, the school has brought back enriching activities that are often lost in the world of standardized testing -- a school newspaper (run by students), a school play, creative problem solving teams, Spanish enrichment, a science fair and the invention convention, along with monthly family fun nights.

Great parent Involvement. A very active PTA and an Academic Enrichment Committee made up of parents! My 1st grader is the third child that goes to this school, and they have all loved their school!

This is a year round school. The quality of the academic programs are good. Accelerated classes are abundant. Music, Art, and Sports are all well represented. The choir is fantastic. Parents are very involved.
