The staff is very welcoming and friendly. Dr. Hughes (the principal) has done an amazing job hiring the right staff who love the children and encouraging a great learning environment. I could not be more happy with the way an elementary school is being ran.
My daughter went to this school for 4 years. We had amazing experience. The education quality including care for gifted kids and extra curricular activities are great. We are lucky to have this school in our community. The principal is very dynamic and energetic. Teachers are always ready to help! Would recooment to anybody who wants a good school with descent environment!
New Castle is a caring, well rounded school in our community. It is by far the best experience we have had in dealing with a public school. The front office staff are friendly, caring and have a servants attitude. The principal, assistant principal, librarians, read specialist, and counseling staff are all ranked outstanding in our book of rankings. The cafeteria manager is friendly, caring and works well with the parents. We will be moving this year to another state, not because we are military, but because of new adventerous chapters in our lives. We can honestly say, NEW CASTLE will be the school that we compare all other schools to. We love you NCES and will miss each and everyone of you! Most success and blessings to all of you and it is with a heart of gratitude we thank you for all you have done in our child's life. It has been all positive.
I love this school and my son who is entering the fourth grade is looking forward for the new school year.The teachers are great.My only concern is that the gifted children that are in the clusterd classroom should be given more challenging work.
All the teachers and staff at NCES care about the children and the school. The principal and assistant principals are wonderful, always accessible and ready to help. The teachers go the extra mile to help students.
So happy we ended up in this school when we moved to VA. We love New Castle Elementary; I volunteer and you can tell the love that the teachers and administration have for the children. NCES is a fabulous school!
Principal, Assistant Principal and Guidance Counselor are always seen out and about in the hallways interacting with the students. The teachers are very friendly and expect a high level of performance from their students. Absolutely fabulous school!
