About Our Schools


Overview

Casis Elementary School began as a joint enterprise of the Austin Public Schools and the University of Texas.  The school opened in 1951 with a regular school program, facilities and instruction for physically handicapped children, and an observation and demonstration center for the general improvement of education in Texas.

The school is named after Lilia May Casis (1869-1947) and Josephine Ramona Casis (1873-1947), two sisters born in Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies.  LIlia Casis worked at the University of Texas as a full professor, the first woman to achieve that honor at that time.  Josephine Casis taught in the primary grades at Palm School for 33 years, until her retirement.  LIlia and Josephine Casis bequeathed their entire estates to the University of Texas and the Austin Public Schools.

Casis today prides itself on continuing the rich legacy of meeting all childrens’ needs. Along with special education programming and a strong academic foundation, Casis offers additional enrichment classes, during the day, that not all other AISD schools offer (i.e. Spanish, Technology, etc.), as well as amazing outdoor learning opportunities, which occur in other extended areas of the school (Organic Garden, Casis Forest, Outdoor Learning Classroom, etc.)."
