Mission, Vision, and Values



The mission of the New Castle Area School District is to create a safe and respectful learning environment, fostered by collaborative community partnerships, where all students will develop necessary skills both academically and socially that will prepare future-ready life-long learners who will become productive citizens and resilient leaders in a global society. 



The vision of the New Castle Area School District is to provide a safe, respectful learning community for students that embraces diversity, promotes a high-quality academic program, and supports the development of the "whole child."  Through use of research-based best practices, state-of-the-art resources, and relevant curricula designed to meet individual needs, the learning environment will enable students to maximize their academic potential while preparing them to be future-ready learners and resilient leaders in a global society. 



We Believe That:

  • All students have the potential to learn and deserve the opportunity to receive a high quality education that challenges them to think deeply and critically. 
  • Learning is a life-long journey supported through "whole child" development both at home and school. 
  • Social and emotional learning will help students and staff manage emotions, set positive goals, and build meaningful relationships through empathy and understanding.
  • Educational excellence is achieved through the collaborative efforts of students, family, school, and community.
  • Academically, socially, and athletically we empower students to explore their talents and creatively shape their own future.
  • Students must be respectful, responsible and resilient life-long learners in order to be productive citizens.
  • Career readiness, awareness and exploration is essential for students of all ages to better prepare them to be productive citizens in this global society.
  • Technology is a vital tool that can transform and personalize teaching and learning experiences for all students at all levels prek-12.
