Schools Nearby Castaic
The Castaic schools are outstanding and certainly rival the school districts in Santa Clarita. Castaic now has their own High School. In fact, it opened here in 2019 for the lower grades and will continue to add more grades annually. Have a look at this Castaic High School post published by our very own Meray Gregory a year or two back! Castaic has three elementary schools and their own middle school. The middle school is quite unique and the only one we've ever seen with their own sports stadium.

So, what's the downside to Castaic? We don't really think there is a downside, but if there was one we'd have to say it's the very occasional snow that occurs to the North of Castaic during the winter. This is kind of a local joke because we rarely get any snow in these parts! When there's heavy snow up the grapevine to the north, Interstate 5 will shut down, right at Castaic. No huge problem, but during those rare shut down periods there can be traffic problems when trying to access Interstate 5.
