Exemplary Programs
New Castle Elementary (NCE) School has many exemplary programs designed to promote academic and social success. All academic programs are aligned with the Common Core State Standards and are delivered through rigorous instruction. The academic programs include Integrated Language Arts lessons designed by ELA teachers, Investigations Math Curriculum, Response to Intervention, Foss Science Kits, School-wide Title 1, ELL support, and Chinese Immersion.
New Castle Elementary was awarded a $50,000 grant by the I AM A LEADER Foundation. This grant will support NCE’s transition into a Leader in Me School. The Leader in Me provides a sequential process to help NCE design a culture that supports a positive learning environment. New Castle Elementary also utilizes Responsive Classroom, which creates a sense of community amongst the students in the class and the school. Coupled together, it is NCE’s goal to continue to create a positive trend in academics.
