Both of my boys attend Newcastle and I can only express how happy I am with the school, teachers, office staff, the principal and the rest of the staff at the school, everyone has always been friendly, helpful and most of all attentive to the kids.

I am so happy to see that my old elementary school is finally open again. I attended this school back in the early 80's and even back then I thought the school was awesome. Still don't know why the school was closed for over 20 years but I'm really happy to know that it's open. Good job!

I love Newcastle Elementary School, My youngest son has attended this school since Kindergarten and will be graduating in the summer of 2008.

* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
