Working together to grow and learn each day.

Mission Statement

The Mission of Crestview Heights School is to create a nurturing and challenging learning environment that is centered around students, guided by staff, and supported by home and community.

Toward this end we commit and focus available resources to ensure that…

  • All children and adults feel welcomed, safe, and respected as an important part of the school.
  • Students experience continuous academic and personal growth and persevere through their challenges.
  • Staff are motivated and enthusiastic to work and learn together, support each other as a collaborative team, and experience continued professional growth.
  • Learning experiences are authentic, varied, engaging for students, and data driven.
  • School-wide instructional frameworks are agreed upon and implemented to support excellent teaching and to maximize student learning.
  • Parents/families feel valued as full participants in their child’s education.
  • Leadership is supportive, encouraging, and fosters positive changes.

Core Beliefs

  • At Crestview, students are not ‘your students’ or ‘my students,’ they are ALL our students.
  • Education is about more than teaching reading, writing, and math. It includes other things such as arts, social skills, and developing a student’s character.
  • All children have the ability to learn, but they do not all learn the same way
  • ‘Equity’ does not mean treating all children the same … It means giving each child what they need to be successful.
  • It is essential to preserve a child’s dignity, even when managing inappropriate behavior.
  • When it comes to working successfully with individual student needs, the most important and indispensable factor is having a team who has the “right stuff.”

Title I

Crestview Heights is a Title I school. Title I is a Federal program designed to help all students achieve high standards in literacy.

At Crestview Heights school, our Title 1 program provides:

  • Student assessment in literacy designed to identify areas of strengths, areas needing improvement, and ongoing assessment to monitor student progress.
  • Targeted instruction for students to provide extra literacy instruction beyond the core classroom reading program.
