ACERO Bartolomé de las Casas School, which opened in 2006, prides itself on a rigorous curriculum, an individualized approach, and strong parent partnerships. Casas earned a Level 1 SQRP rating in 2018. As a community of students, teachers, mentors and leaders, we are truly a family. The word family is strongly connected at our small school, both literally and figuratively. We span grades K through 8, and serve nearly 280 students. Many of our students have a familial bond with one another or have grown a similar bond in their classmates through the nine years they spend together at Casas. At Casas, all students take part in Art, Physical Education, and Spanish classes. Our students can also participate in the National Junior Honor Society, athletic teams, Girl Scouts, a rock band, and programs with our external partners.
