Newcastle Elementary School opened its doors in 2004, fully wired and furnished and “home” for more than 400 students. The facility includes sophisticated educational technology, enabling teachers at a flick of a switch to engage students in computerized lessons, DVD experiences, internet exploration, or group projects. A large Commons and full stage accommodates concerts and programs and the baseball field is available for community use.
Newcastle supports every student’s learning. Parents partner to create a Study Coach program providing one-on-one support to students in need either academically or emotionally.
As the first official public building in the Newcastle city limits, the school is a learning center for students and a community gathering place for residents.
Newcastle dismisses classes early every Wednesday for two hours of staff collaboration.
