Welcome to Raúl H. Castro Middle School

principal sarah hernandezDear Parents and Students,

I am Sarah Hernández and have been serving as the principal of Castro since August of 2010. I have been in the Cartwright School District since August of 1998. I love the Maryvale community and am always humbled by the support our community shows for education. I share that same passion for educating the whole student.

I know that your child can be successful when pushed and guided in the right direction. We believe that behavior and academics can be learned and improved upon at Castro. Our social skills curriculum encompasses all the skills that are necessary to be successful in school, but more importantly in life. I look forward to working with you and your family on this last phase of your elementary career. Together with family I am confident that your student can leave Castro college and career ready!

Sarah Hernandez
Principal
