    I lived in New Castle my whole life until about 3 years ago. New Castle High School is the best school that I've heard of and I would do anything to go back for the end of my senior year! Attending NCCHS was the best experience of my life. It has wonderful educational programs along with the right amount of athletics and spirit. Everyone is very hospitable and the teachers really know what they are doing and try to help in any way they can. NCCHS is a great place to learn and make friends and memories. I recommend this school to anyone that has the chance to attend!
