Castle View High School

Taking the long view


With eyes to the future and hearts full of nostalgia, 416 Castle View High School graduates shuffled, danced, cartwheeled, fist-pumped and waved their way across the Red Rocks Amphitheatre stage to collect their diplomas on May 21 with $3 million more in scholarships than the year prior. Students screamed with joy as principal Dr. James Calhoun serenaded the seniors with “Over the Rainbow” and applauded as faculty speaker Matt Adams urged the departing students to remain realistic about their dreams, evoking Wesley from Princess Bride: “Life is pain, Highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.”
