I attended Castlehill from preschool to 5th grade. It made going to school so much fun. The teachers were so nice, caring, and made whatever we were learning fun and engaging. In fact, I am still in contact with some of them. The class sizes are smaller, so I got more one-on-one time with the teacher. I will also learn leadership and how to be a good friend Castlehill also has amazing specials like music and art. In art, we once made sunflowers inspired by Vincent Van Gogh. And in music some of my favorite memories are putting on the Dora and Diego show in preschool and At The Hop in 5th Grade. The science program is one of the best. We learned about cells to electricity and fun experiments to go along with each unit. We also got to play with the baby tortoise and snakes if there was anytime after class. In Spanish, we didn't just learn the language we learned about the culture. And since the world is evolving into using more technology, Castlehill has a whole class based on technology. You learn to type fast and how to navigate the Internet safely. Castlehill has a big library where kids get to discover new books and expand their horizons with new genres. Castlehill is the best school to send your child. I absolutely loved it. And I wish I was still there.
