Castle Hills Elementary School is the only elementary magnet program in North East ISD, which means parents may choose to send their children here if they live within six feeder school areas, live in the Castle Hills attendance zone, or apply for School Choice from any NEISD schools. This gives the school a unique and rich mix of student backgrounds and cultures from around the District. The faculty and staff of Castle Hills, as well as NEISD administration, have a strong commitment to this special program.
