    The comments below are outdated. This school has a lack of "good teachers." Out of the whole time attending castle it is safe to say I only had one good teacher per grade level. The teachers do not care and they do not tailor the way they teach to the students needs. For example one of my teachers don't even know what their doing. She gave us a 10 page project due in 10 days. When I asked for the rubric she said look on the handout. The handout did NOT have the rubric for the 10 page project it was a rubric for the presentation. She gave us an assignment without even reading it. It got so bad homework is not even graded in efforts to increase graduation rate. The school structure is very good. Classrooms are stuffed with students. In my math class there are about 43 people in ONE room. It is difficult for me to learn with so many people in the room. In my Japanese class there are 30 (avg private school is about 10-18 students/language class). This school should only be attended as a last resort. It has a reputation of being a very bad school around the island.

    I am a student at Castle Highschool and let me just say that this is a great school with wonderful teachers who will be there for their students. We also have a performing arts department. Hope my comments help you choose where your child will go to high school.
