Castlemont Elementary School - Home

Welcome to World Famous Castlemont School!

We are a school community with high expectations as students, educators, parents, and the community work together towards a common goal to actively support all students in achieving his or her personal best.

We call ourselves World Famous because in our fifty-year history, we enjoy a diverse population that represents the global world that our students will be contributing to. Our students meet high standards as we place particular emphasis on providing an academic program that sparks their love of learning.

A school of nearly 750 Transitional Kindergarten through 5th grade students, Castlemont is located in Silicon Valley and serves students from the communities of San Jose and Campbell. Our partnerships with those communities and their families are among our greatest strengths. Parents are part of the decision-making process through involvement in a very active Castlemont Home and School Club, our bilingual Advisory Committee, the School Site Council and our program review process.

As we start the new school year it is important to remember Castlemont’s 3 Rs: Respect, Responsibility, and the Right to be Safe. Castlemont staff will be teaching students during the first weeks of school about what it means to follow the 3Rs in the classroom, on the playground, in the bathrooms, hallways, and cafeteria. Please take time to ask them about ways they follow the 3Rs at school and how they can also follow them at home.

Castlemont is a community that provides all students with a wonderful place to learn, grow, and experience life in a safe and caring environment!
