About Our School:

​The Casey vision is to inspire students to be creative and critical thinkers.  Our students become engaged lifelong learners, who are compassionate and connected to our diverse, multilingual community and global society. We are a dynamic and exciting learning community of students, parents, and faculty from an array of cultures offering a full range of academic and elective choices. As a Pre-Advanced Placement school, Casey offers students exposure to the Habits of Mind and study skills that prepare them for the advanced learning necessary for future success in an increasingly complex and changing world. We are a neighborhood school that hosts a focus program, dual immersion bilingual, as well as a traditional middle school program. Some key features of our school are:

  • A commitment to learning in depth through reading, writing, and discussion

  • A highly ranked math program that provides students with the challenge needed to ensure high levels of growth over three years

  • A continuum of English classes—from advanced English language arts to English as a Second Language (ESL) --exists to support and challenge all students

  • A bilingual program offering classes in Spanish language arts, Spanish reading and Spanish social studies to support bilingualism in both native Spanish and native English speaking students

  • A Talented and Gifted (TAG) Program with an on-site coordinator

  • Success for students of all language backgrounds in honors math and advanced language arts classes because Casey students receive extra support as needed

  • Traditional and unique electives, such as Leadership, Baile Folklórico and AVID, as well as after school activities like Hip-Hop Dance, Skiing and Outdoor Education, round out our instructional program

  • Families are involved through PTA, SAC, Casey Parents (a parent networking group offered in Spanish)

Principals Message:
Casey inspires students to be creative and critical thinkers. Our students become engaged lifelong learners who are compassionate and connected to our diverse, multilingual community and global society.

On behalf of the faculty and staff at Casey Middle School, it is my pleasure to welcome you.  Casey has enjoyed tremendous success and has established many incredible traditions and legacies throughout the years.  Casey is Boulder's historic middle school where, since 1923, over 25,000 students have successfully begun their secondary school careers. At Casey, we promise every student and parent that we will care more than others think is wise, risk more than others think is safe, dream more than others think is practical and expect more than others think is possible.  The incredible faculty and staff at Casey Middle School encourage all students to set high goals for themselves and to reach for their dreams.

I sincerely hope you join us and enjoy the numerous opportunities available to all the students who are part of our Cub family. As one parent stated recently, "We are so very happy with all of our son's experiences at Casey!  The teachers have been truly excellent and he's really enjoyed school in a way he never did before. Casey truly is 'the whole package': great teachers, great environment, bilingual and diverse."
