Welcome to Francis Case Elementary School. Our school was built in 1964 to provide an additional school for a rapidly expanding Ellsworth Air Force Base. Students named the building for Francis Higbee Case, (1896-1962) South Dakota’s congressman for more than 25 years.
Francis Case student population is approximately 400 second and third grade students with 59 staff members. We have a diverse student population with military dependents, local Box Elder, Rapid Valley and southern Meade county students.
Besides their regular class, our students enjoy Art, Computer, Library, Music and PE classes every week. We also have a full time counselor, special services staff, gifted teacher and english as a second language teacher to help all our students succeed.
We are Douglas Patriots! Proud of our school, district, community and country.
