Our History

The school building is located on 18 acres and cost over $1.6 million to construct. August 11, 1999 was the very first day of school for the Casey Elementary staff and students. While the building is a spectacular site, the real school consists of the dynamic, energetic, and innovative students, along with our caring professional educators. Casey serves students from prekindergarten through fifth grade. The rigorous student-centered curriculum is built on the Bertha Casey tradition of excellence and integrity.

Our school is named for Miss Bertha Florence Casey. Miss Casey was born in Fredericktown, Missouri, on December 3, 1904, yet lived most of her life in Austin, Texas. She was educated in the Austin Public Schools and earned her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the University of Texas at Austin. She was an active and respected member of the University Methodist Church where she taught the Fellowship Forum for 25 years.

She began her teaching career at Austin High School from 1929-1954.  She then transferred to the new A.N. McCallum High School where she taught until her retirement in 1970.  Her students worked hard, and loved and respected Miss Casey.  Miss Casey's devotion serves as an inspiration that teaching is a noble calling.
