Connecting Students to Success
Crestwell School takes pride in providing excellence in academics in a family environment. It is our belief that to effectively optimize a child’s academic potential, we must provide a learning environment that incorporates a variety of teaching techniques while accommodating individual learning styles. Our curriculum builds proficiency in higher order thinking skills, literacy, technology, and computational and theoretical processes, while nurturing artistic, physical, and interpersonal development. Crestwell School’s diverse student body fosters a broad understanding of the world in which we live and aids in the development of cooperative skills.
At Crestwell School, we believe that to be complete, the sense of family fostered on our campus must include parents, and to that end, we maintain effective and frequent oral and written communications and an “open door” policy. Crestwell School shares the responsibility with the parent for instilling positive values and a love of learning.
Our goals are best carried in an environment of mutual trust and caring where students are given the necessary tools, guidance and opportunities to develop independence and self-reliance. We accomplish this by providing a low student/teacher ratio, which allows a teacher to better understand how each student learns. Our small class sizes allow our teachers to individualize lesson plans, be more responsive to students’ needs, and to continually challenge them academically. Our goal is to ignite the full academic potential of every student.
We seek to teach our students computer uses and applications as tools for research, problem solving, design and communication. It is our goal to send our students into this rapidly changing world prepared and enthusiastic for the technological changes to come in their lifetimes.
At Crestwell School, we make use of textbooks and group lessons in the traditional fashion, while maintaining the philosophy of individualization. We are able to embrace this philosophy by ensuring a low student/teacher ratio.
Our Elementary teachers work as a vertical team to prepare our students for middle school. Our teachers know all of their students well, and are able to tailor lessons to build upon the individual strengths of students and to address any areas of difficulty in learning. The middle school teachers incorporate the latest technology available into their curriculum to prepare students to be effective twenty-first century learnings. At Crestwell School, we believe that recognizing the individuality of students and affording them the opportunity to have small classes enables them to be successful.
Crestwell School utilizes STEAM curriculum, which provides a comprehensive approach to science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics. Through activity, project, and project-based curriculum, Crestwell School gives students in kindergarten through middle school a chance to apply what they know, identify problems, find unique solutions, and lead their own learning.
Crestwell School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
