    The mission of Casey Elementary School is to focus on student achievement by providing a challenging and engaging curriculum for a diverse, multicultural, student body. In doing so, we incorporate the art forms of music, dance, drama, and visual arts into the curriculum. Each student is challenged to develop and achieve essential academic skills, and an appreciation and understanding of their artistic surroundings, in order to become a successful, well-rounded, productive citizen.
