WHAT YOUR CHILD CAN EXPECT IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
AT CRESTWELL SCHOOL
In Elementary School, we recognize the importance of the relationship between child and teacher. By making a priority of getting to know each student well, our teachers create classroom environments where every child is acknowledged and feels a sense of belonging. Daily morning meetings and fun activities that promote community are an integral part of our program. We place a high priority on the social and emotional well-being of our students in tandem with the development of strong academic, artistic, and athletic skills. Our program emphasizes developmentally appropriate challenges and the kind of predictable structure that nurtures a sense of self-discipline, resilience, and confidence in our learners — traits that are important to our students as they advance to the upper elementary grades and Middle School.
EDUCATING THE WHOLE CHILD
At Crestwell School, we respect, celebrate, and encourage every child as a one-of-a-kind individual. That’s why our program is designed to ensure your child not only succeeds in school, college, and career, but also flourishes as a unique, resilient, and happy human being. By cultivating your child’s particular passions and talents, we give them the tools to reach higher in all their endeavors.
Our challenging, developmentally calibrated curriculum ensures mastery in fundamental subject areas, while collaborative projects and individual attention spark your child’s enthusiasm and curiosity. Discovering more about the world and their own capabilities, your child builds confidence in themselves and their classmates. They ask big questions, seek meaningful solutions, and embrace opportunities to learn and do more.
We uphold character values as a vital element of every child’s education. When character development is a natural and indispensable part of your child’s early learning, they grow as insightful leaders and effective problem solvers. Equally important, they emerge with a strong moral compass that guides them all their lives. At Crestwell, students study and present on character values monthly.
