    "It's a good school but definitely could be improved. Education takes a back seat to sports in most cases and the lunches are laughable. Some teachers do a lot to help but then there's the others who couldn't care less about it."

    "I have truly enjoyed my experience so far at New Castle Senior High School. Although I am only a sophomore, I feel that I will be more than ready for college by the time I graduate thanks to the school's superb acedemics and teachers. The student population is very diverse and there seems to be no borders between different groups of people (race, sexuality, religion, etc). The sports teams at New Castle are outstanding. The students really get involved in supporting these teams. We like to say that we "bleed red and black". The food served has lacked over the past few years but a new menu was recently adopted and the food choices have improved immensely. The school is a beautiful building that is easy to navigate. Overall, New Castle Senior High School is a great place to receive an education and I would not want to earn my diploma at any other school."

    "The school has been updated quite a bit since I attended (It really needed it). A relatively large school, but not a lot of extended courses into special areas, considering that students are discouraged from attending college because of the price."

    "My high school experience was something I would not want to give back. Our school has potential, but not a lot of people see it in themselves. Some teachers see it and try to help them realize it. I like that New Castle is a community where mostly everyone knows eachother and people aren't left out when others are part of a different social group or seen as different. If I could change something about the school it would be the favoritism that happens in the school with teachers towards students that are known for being good at sports. I would also change the dress code because poverty makes up most of our community and some students in the school are financially unstable. Students can't always afford getting "school clothes" to reach the color requirements. The idea of sacrificing a students education to go to in school suspension over the wrong color shirt is something I will never understand."

    "The school does the best it can with the students it has. Many of the students do not care for learning."
