Okay yes, it's true that the principal is a piece of work. All she really cares about seems to be testing and avoiding litigation. But don't let that scare you away. She still manages to do a lot for the school. The students and the teachers are awesome, and the PTA does a pretty good job with events like the school dances and things like that. It's not Zilker, because Casey doesn't have that kind of money or well-connected parents who can donate $5000 to the school or have parent nights at their mansions or whatever. But they do have cool programs and it is what you make it. My kid has been there for two years and we're putting our other kid in next year. We have very few complaints. We are "members" of the PTA but stay away from the drama and it suits us just fine.
Mother of 2 who just moved her children from this school for too many reasons to post on here. Basically: great teachers, crooked, rude principal and vice principal. Clearly some of these reviews aren't truthful and were probably added by some sort of staff member for the school. Especially the ones that emphasize how great the principals are. . . what a crock!
My son loves this school and I've found both of his teachers to be great. They do activities to get parents involved and are over all run very well. The Principal and Vice Principal are both very accessible. If I wasn't moving out of the whole district I'd definitely keep him enrolled here.
I Have A 4Th Grader & 2Nd Grader Who Have Been At Casey For Two Years.We Moved,But I Kept Them Enrolled At Casey,Since The Teachers & Curriculum Met Our Standards. Principal & vise Principal Are Very Pro Active With There Students.
The teachers are wonderful but the principal is trying to do to much herself. The school is very organized and the kids know what they are suppose to do. I think it's great! My kids have been here for 5 years and there has been such a change over the last couple of years but there still needs more change with administration.
I have five grandchildren at Casey and I will tell you that the best thing about the school is the Teacher quality. Most of the Teachers at this school are excellent. My greatest concern is about safety, however, in that pick-up after school is done in a way that, it is more important to keep the traffic moving...than it is in seeing that that the person picking up the children, has the authorization to do so. Sometimes, children are late coming out, which also adds to the backup of traffic for picking up children. Even when I have picked up children from the school office, I have never been asked to see an ID. An office staff member is very rude, to the children & adults...when children are not picked up on time. This school lacks after school programs.
