  • 2018-2019 Newcastle Ladycat Volleyball Season


    The Newcastle Ladycats  had a successful volleyball season with a 19-13 record overall and a district record of 10-2.  The Ladycats finished as the district runner up and went into playoffs as the first place seed.  This season was full of growth both mentally and physically. All 8 varsity players were named to the all district team.  Kelsey Shields was the district MVP, Hannah Manos was the Offensive MVP, Nicole Martinez was the Defensive MVP, Arryn Eli was the Outstanding Setter of the Year, Kelsi New was First Team All District, Amy Martinez was First Team All District, Hannah Shanks was Second Team All District and Shyla Hardin received Second Team All District.  The season would not have been a success without each of the 16 girls buying into a new program and working so hard. The heart and hustle these ladies showed was incredible.

  • 2017-2018 Newcastle High School Students Perform Above State Average in College Readiness!


    Newcastle High School received its College Readiness Letter from ACT this week.  ACT has developed through collaborative research with postsecondary institutions nationwide a college readiness benchmark score for designated core college courses.  The benchmark is a minimum score needed in a subject area test. Students earning an 18 on the English Composition Test, a 22 on ACT Mathematics test, a 22 on ACT Reading Test, and a 23 on ACT Science test have a 50% chance of earning a B or higher and 75% chance of earning a C or higher in the corresponding credit-bearing college courses of English Composition, College Algebra, Social Sciences, and Biology.  


    Newcastle Students are averaging 20.3 in English, 23.6 in Mathematics, 19.8 in Reading, a 21.7 in Science, and a 21.5 Composite.  These scores indicate a positive future for Newcastle students entering higher institutions. Comparatively to the State average in all areas except Reading, Newcastle Students are scoring 1 to 3 points higher than the State Average.  


    Teachers in Newcastle continue to have high expectations for classroom performance and college readiness for their students.
