    This school is a wonderful small elementary school. The teachers and faculty are all great and the opportunities afforded the students are pretty numerous. Any complaints I have are related to the cuts in the State budget that have effected the school district and not about the district itself..

    You have your description wrong so it makes me wonder how much of this information is scientifically valid. Castleton Elementary has =traditionally been K-3rd grade and will add 4th grade this year (200(/10). It's an excellent school in a small close knit community. The principal is excellent as are the teachers. The classroom sizes are incredible...about 18 per class! My child has excelled in all areas at this school.
