Welcome to New Castle Elementary
New Castle Elementary School is located just on the outskirts of Old New Castle. The school was built in 1929 and housed the original William Penn High School, New Castle Middle and The New Castle School. Therefore, our school building is rich in history and has many memories for families in the New Castle area.
New Castle Elementary, also known as “The Castle”, has the motto- “We will go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that every student is successful everyday!” The population is culturally diverse, serving multi-racial/multi-ethnic children. New Castle Elementary provides a plethora of services that are geared toward the individual learner. Students are provided an individual learning program based on the instructional data that is taken from a variety of measures. Academic programs are designed to meet the needs of varying ability levels.
Our school is staffed by highly qualified teachers who are passionate about their profession. Staff has been trained by some of the top educational consultants in the United States. In addition, teachers receive professional development opportunities monthly to enhance their ability to keep up with the demands and changes in the greater society.
New Castle Elementary has forged a partnership with Discover Bank and continues to seek business and community support. The Discover Bank program provides more than 60 mentors who visit at-risk students weekly to tutor, talk, or simply play and create lasting impressionable relationships that will last a lifetime.
We strive each day to motivate and encourage students to live up to the district motto which is to be “Career and College Ready,” and we encourage you to come and see what makes us great!
