Love that my children are learning so much at a great rate. The teachers and staff are great and genuinely caring. I love all of the projects they have the children work on, especially when they work in the garden. Every May they have a star party where the children, their teachers and family get to go camping and stare gaze. My children's teachers are both love their job and stay on task.

My son attends Casita and LOVES it! He is testing almost 2 grades ahead in both Math and Reading. He has formed wonderful friendships with his classmates. Great great school!

My sons are loving school this year! The atmosphere on campus is warm and welcoming. I have a son who just started Kindergarten and at pick-up, he greets me with a smile and "I love school, mom!" My 3rd grader enjoys his new learning environment. With all the subjects being taught through hands on creative learning, and is encouraged to explore Casita's gardens, spacious play grounds, as well as. I'mm looking forward to volunteering my time, to help nurture the butterfly habitat, that well be developed for our children, so do their science classes in.

We love Casita! Casita is truly a great school. Our principal, Laura Smith is at EVERY event and is completely committed to the school and it's families. She is an excellent role model for our children. The Casita families are involved, aware, and advocates for their children's education. I love seeing my children flourishing at Casita.

This school has a lot going for it. The newest program is GATE! The district has cut it, but Casita managed to get outside funding and has started an after school, once a week high-achiever program for grades 2-5. This semester, grades 2 and 3 are solving a mystery and learning about forensics. There are so many other extras at Casita: star lab, science lab, tech lab, PTA events, after school specialty classes, etc. There's a great garden with a garden club, and next I've heard that a knitting club will start! And students seem nicer overall than our last school.

I personally like the idea that is focused on Math & Science, "Points gain" for reading evaluation is a great idea, it is one example why my daughter wants to read lots of books, therefore her pronunciation, spelling and writing increasing dramatically every day, same with Math. Also Emily loves the Science Lab that really ecourage creativity, knowledge and critical thinking. Big round of applause for the teachers, counselors, coaching and all personnel involved at the Great La Casita Center Elementary! GOOD JOB!!!

I love that Casita has a focus on Math, Science and Technology. Kids are taught from an early age to use computers. It is an amazing school with caring and incredible teachers!

We love Casita! The principal, Laura Smith, has the children's best interests at heart and it's reflected in the program. I love the focus on Technology, Science, and Math and it's very integrated into the cirriculum. The teachers we've had have all been fantastic and are all very good at communicating what they need from us to make our son's education sucessful. And the garden is WONDERFUL! Every kid deserves outside space like they have. Just wish they could make the entire school feel like the garden does. (Maybe with 20,000 they could get there!)
