In Castlewood, we are committed to working together with our school board, families, and the community to build Courage, Honesty, and Strength through education. Castlewood School District is home to approximately 330 students in grades PK – 12.
Castlewood School is a warm, caring, and inviting place where students enjoy learning. We take pride in our staff, students, education, and the many extra-curricular activities that are offered. On May 12th, 2022, our elementary school and gymnasium were damaged by an F2 tornado. The community was hit hard, but together we are committed to rebuilding a better facility for our students. Students in grades PK-4 are utilizing the mobile classroom unit which is directly south of the 5-12 building.
The educational foundation for our students starts in preschool. Our certified preschool teacher is in-house. Technology is an essential part of our educational system. We have a 1:1 device-to-student ratio for our students. Every student in PK-2 has an assigned iPad which is utilized throughout the day for teaching, practicing, and reinforcing concepts. Students in grades 3-8 are assigned a Chromebook and students in 9-12 each have a Windows Touch screen Tablet/Laptop. Our teachers are continually increasing the use of technology at all grade levels. We believe that technology is vital for our students to be successful in post-secondary education and in today’s working world.
Feel free to contact the school if you would like more information about the educational experience we offer.
