• Our casey Elementary School Motto says it all: Educating the Whole Child In and through the Arts." We operate under the Whole Schools Initiative (WSI) model, a comprehensive school reform that uses the arts as a vehicle for promoting high quality instruction and learning for all students.  Casey students are engaged in visual arts, theatre, dance and music during the instructional day.  The program encompasses the students' personal and social development as well as academic performance in school.
