    Overview

    Casey Elementary is part of the Jackson Public School District serving students in grades pre-K-5.

    Mission

    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 will incorporate the art forms of music, dance, drama, and visual arts into the curriculum. Each student will be challenged to develop and achieve essential academic skills, as well as an appreciation and understanding of their artistic surroundings, in order to become a successful, well-rounded, productive citizen.

    What's Going on at Casey?

    Top Notch education, everyday! We are a Whole School's Initiative Art School. At Casey Elementary School, the arts are an important and essential part of learning for every student from kindergarten to fifth grade.

    Our scholars are educated by utilizing an Arts Integrated Curriculum. They are exposed to experiences in the art disciplines of music, visual arts, theater, and dance both through pure art classes and the infusion of arts in the regular classroom curriculum.

    Whole School Initiative

    Casey adopted the Whole School Initiative Model in the fall of 1999. It works hand-in-hand with the "WOW" designs and techniques of JPS. Casey is recognized as one of only four Model Schools in the State of Mississippi
