  • I barely got out of Castaneda and I already miss it! Castaneda is the very best school I have been to. All my teachers were great!and all the staff treated me like if I were part of their family , that is why I always considered my school like my second house, I loved being at school.I am going to miss everyone there, specially My Teachers. and I will sure miss the nicest Principal I have ever met.I am sure that any student that has the opportunity to go to Castaneda will fall in Love with the school and the nice second Family they will find there.
