Welcome scholars and parents to Castille Elementary School. You are now officially a “Coyote!”  Our school focuses on STEAM education where students “Create, Innovate, and Discover," finding themselves entrenched in STEAM learning opportunities throughout their school year where creativity flourishes, innovation thrives and students discover new interests. You will find our school to be a welcoming environment with exceptional teachers that provides an enriching curriculum that is geared toward meeting the highest of standards. We also appreciate how supportive our community and PTA volunteers are in helping to support vital enrichment programs for our students.  

Our goal is to challenge each student to progress in the state and district standards to achieve academic excellence. We facilitate an active and supportive learning environment by collaboration and by ongoing evaluation of student work and assessment results. Learning is stimulated by problem solving, critical thinking skills, and by opportunities for student choice through differentiation.  Science, math, and technology are woven throughout your child’s day, and Castille students are afforded additional opportunities to participate in science learning with working scientists at universities and through a 3 year partnership with Discovery Education and Maker Space/Robotics Labs. We work as a team to assist all Castille students to become contributing members of society empowered with the skills, knowledge, and values necessary to excel in a changing world.  We are a 21st Century Learning Collaborative.

Our school’s theme this year is “Amazing Things Happen Here!” You and your children are going to be AMAZED at all of the opportunities you will have to participate in fun activities, and more importantly, you will be AMAZED at how much your students will learn this year! We are pleased to have your family be part of our school community and are excited about working with you during the upcoming year and throughout your child(ren)’s elementary school career.
