    I have experienced Casey for 3 years now. Their daily routine starts together with the pledge school's pledge--lead by students and then morning music. There is an atmosphere of inclusion for all students. Working there as a volunteer substitute or visiting as a relative--the expectation is respect for others at all times and work together to achieve a goal. The children are learning more than the basics in Academics they have helped to beautify the grounds they planted vegetable & flower gardens this school term they work on projects of various sorts--they have school pride and a sense of belong as a result. Casey is an OLD FASHION experience that all of Americas children should have.

    Both of my daughters attended Casey and we loved it! The teachers are well trained and loving. The administrators and office personnel are wonderful! It is also a very secure school.

    My daughter has been attending this school for 2 years now and I can say the first year was rough for her but has she got older she got better. This is not because of the teachers it was because of her attitude. She had loving teachers Mrs Russell and Mrs Kinnedy. Her kindergarten teachers worked with her and we also had discussions about her attitude and work as well. She's now in the first grade and yes she has attitude problems still but it has gotten better than she was in the kindergarten. Her teachers are so on top of their game. They are really good teachers and set great examples for other schools. Thanks Casey Elementary School.

    Casey is a small family oriented transfer/magnet school. My children have gone through and the experience could never have been better. K-4 grades are superb! I hope Casey keeps the tradition going by hiring administration who genuinely care about the good of the students. Arts Education is a must in this day and time. Kudos to Casey!!!!!
