Welcome to Casillas Elementary!

Casillas logoJoseph C. Casillas Elementary School will prepare all students to be literate, responsible citizens with an enthusiasm for life-long learning. Through the implementation of a rigorous, standards-based academic program, Casillas students will be prepared to confidently meet the challenges of middle and high school.

Casillas School believes that student-based decision-making processes encourage collaboration and meaningful involvement among all stakeholders (parents, staff, students, and community partners). Goodwill and pride in the Casillas School community are rooted in each child's academic, social, and emotional development.

Guided by student achievement data, we will ensure that our academic programs are strong to close achievement gaps between students identified as English only and those in our target groups (English Learners, Socio-economically Disadvantaged, & Special Education students).
