Ft. Caspar Academy Ratings & Reviews
We LOVE Fort Caspar Academy!!!! I currently have three children that attend and one more starting next year. They have a new principal this year who is amazing! My youngest child needs to work harder than my other two on his homework, but none of them have to "to much." Fort Caspar is a more challenging school than most, but the students still have fun. I believe there is a huge difference between fun, and fluff. Fort Caspar has fun, they do not have any fluff. They don't do 2 hour, nonsense assemblies on how to brush your teeth (I have sat through one at another school), they don't have parties for all the different holidays, and they don't celebrate meritocracy. They do have fun and it's in a more meaningful way. They have fewer parties and are more low key. Education comes first and it's a school, it should. I'm happy and my kiddo's are too. The children that succeed at Fort Caspar are the children who's parents are fully supportive. They understand our curriculum and work close with the school to insure that their child is getting all the support they can from both places and reinforcing what's being taught at school.
Be warned stay away from this school. My daughter,who is dyslexic, went here when we first moved to casper in 2012. Her teacher, and I use this term in its loosest possible definition,told her in no uncertain terms she was too stupid to be in his class.we moved her to Dean Morgan for her next year and low and behold she's getting A's and B's
Fort Caspar Academy is an amazing school. The teachers are compassionate, flexible, and exceptionally competent. The curriculum is rigid, and there is a strong expectation regarding homework. It IS a good school... the best in Natrona County. With that said... this school is NOT a good place for a child with Learning Disabilities such as ADHD/ADD, Dyspraxia, or Dysgraphia. There are multiple reasons for this observation. The school counselor ONLY knows how to test for ADHD. She does not know what Dyspraxia or Dysgraphia are, both of which are debilitating for a child at a school this demanding. Our son has all these conditions, and the school was not equipped nor knowledgeable enough about them to provide him the best care. They did not know how to fill out a 504 plan, he was bullied by his P.E. teacher, and it was a horrible experience. When the principal was approached about all this, with documentation in hand, he was speechless. He could not respond, and he did not offer solutions. I think because he had none. If your child has diagnosed or suspected Learning Disabilities, consider a different school within this district.
My kids attend Fort Caspar Academy and LOVE it! My husband and I LOVE it too! Academically it is the best, the children perform well and learn quickly. But they are taught more than reading, writing and arithmetic, they are taught respect, service, morals, responsibility, ethics and more. The dress code isn't terribly strict, but it's nice to know that children will look decent when coming to school (no halter tops or pants hanging down around the knees here!). The office staff is friendly, the teachers are enthusiastic and work well with the parents, and the nurse (I saw some negative comments in older posts) is great. My daughter is constantly getting bumped and scraped on the playground (just clumsy) and I always get a note or a phone call to update me, even when it's nothing serious. The principal takes time to set up meetings if I'm ever concerned about anything. And my kids definitely have FUN in class! I could go on and on. We may be moving soon and the thing I am most upset about is that I have not been able to find ANYTHING that comes close to this amazing school. I may end up homeschooling!
We have had children at this schools for 12 yrs. The education provided is 2nd to none. It is not for every family, but that is made abundantly clear at the parent meeting before school starts. Randall Larson is a fantastic principal, and the office staff is wonderful. Our 3 children that have and do attend this school enjoy every day. The teachers are amazing and the structure is how school should be. We have had nothing but positive experiences here. The study habits that children learn carry them through high school. Children at his school receive an education that costs thousands per year in other states. Take advantage of a rare opportunity to get this kind of schooling for free.
