Welcome to another year of learning at Crestwood Elementary Junior High School. This website will provide you with information about our school, programs, policies and events.
Come and be a part of the Crestwood School community where passion, imagination, curiosity and respect for intellectual risk taking are valued. Students and parents are invited to walk together with us on educational journeys anchored by the cornerstone values of integrity, equity, collaboration and accountability.
Crestwood students are widely recognized and respected for their talents and accomplishments. We expect the best and we are not disappointed. Crestwood School has a proud history and we aim to continue the traditions across academics, athletics and the arts. At Crestwood, we value a growth mindset and we foster a culture of risk-taking where students create challenging tasks, set goals for themselves – physical, intellectual and psychological.
Our staff members model life-long learning by engaging in professional development around curriculum areas, student assessment, leadership, differentiation in programming, and coaching – to name a few areas where you may find staff workshops or reading current professional materials. Teachers analyze student work via conversations, observations, performances and project based learning in order to provide fair assessments as well as to provide responsive instruction that is both relevant and meaningful.
We welcome parental input and observations so that we are assured of a comprehensive perspective when making decisions about programming. We welcome parents as volunteers and guest instructors. We will do our best to accommodate times for meetings about your child or other things you may want to discuss.
