Welcome to  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.




Principal's Message

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. 

Dawn Schmitz - Principal




For the 2024 - 2025 school year, Crestwood School is full in planned classes in the regular program AND full in Grades 7 to 9 in the Academic Alternative program. We will no longer accept enrolment requests for the Academic Alternative program. For the regular program, a Kindergarten student who is a resident and lives in the school's attendance area may still register. We will now only accept resident students in Grades 1 to 6 whose parent(s)/legal guardian(s) have newly moved into the school’s attendance area for the regular program. A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic. Non-resident students can enrol in another Division school with space in planned classes.

If you are registering for Kindergarten or are new to Edmonton Public Schools, you must register online.

The Superintendent has suspended sibling access to Crestwood School, for students residing outside the attendance area.

For the regular program only, the following students are guaranteed admission:

i) resident students who live in the attendance area

Remaining spaces are filled, including when a random selection process is conducted, in the following order:

ii) siblings of current students who are returning to the school the following year who live outside the attendance area

iii) resident students who live outside of the attendance area

iv) non-resident students subject to any other requirements as outlined in the HC.AR regulation.
