we have actually just started going to Casey. But as of right now I am very satisfied with everything. The teachers are wonderful, and the lessons and the help offered to students in certain areas are great... I would give this school a five star rating..

I am a parent of a student at Casey. I feel that after school tutoring needs to be provided for students. I have asked the vice-principal for tutoring and have yet heard back from him. The parents also need to be more involved. The P.T.A is great and they work hard, but they need more help.

The level of Parent Involvement is very low if any at all. The only time that you see the parents is if there is a free activity at the school. They are quick to put down the school and the lack of certain things available at the school. but they are not there when we need them.

Being on the PTA at the school , I have seen what goes on in the school. We could do more at the school if we could get the parents to participate more. We are currently running a student store which does good. We do need more participation! The teachers are good and the principal tries her hardest to get new things going in the school.

The Previous principal was great. The new principal has no people skills, Or maybe she just thinks everyone else is beneath her. Other Parents at the school feel the same way. I've expressed my concern to teachers as well, and some have agreed with the parents that the Principal needs to improve on her people skills. -concerned Grandma

My son has been attending this school for about a year now. He seems to be happy in this school and he likes his teacher, she seems like she really cares. The only problem I have with the school is that there is not enough supervision while the kids are at recess, my son has complained to me about older children bullying and teasing the younger children. I have brought this to the schools attention and there has not been any change! ~concerned parent.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
