The faculty and staff of this school really care about our children. I feel they go above and beyond in every aspect of our children's needs. They are always attentive and very helpful when I come by or call on the phone.

This school has the biggest heart. The teachers are very caring and the principal stays on top of everything. The office staff will go out of their way to meet your needs (ESP. the secretary). Casa View really cares for your children.

Although the PTA has entirely too many fundraisers; the teachers are very caring.

My daughter attends Casa View. The teachers are the best. The office staff is terrific. They all care about our children and it shows. If there is a problem the principal will take care of it. Thank you to everyone at Casa View.

I have two daughters who attend this school. I think the TAG program could be more challenging. Perhaps accelerated reading, math, and science classes could be offered as well to help students excel.
