School Summary
Built in 1956, Crestwood Elementary School completed extensive renovation in December 2000 that included the addition of state-of-the-art technology and a versatile media center. A traditional neighborhood school situated in a close-knit Springfield community, most of Crestwood's kindergarten through grade 6 population walk to and from school. Because of its strong educational partnership with the surrounding community, the school offers a collaborative team approach providing the best opportunities for all students. With 77 percent of the student body from ethnically diverse backgrounds, a full-time community outreach coordinator serves as a conduit between the school and the community to help foster respect for individual differences and to nurture a supportive school climate sensitive to diversity. Additionally, through a unique partnership among the school, the community, and cooperating local government agencies, the on-site Crestwood Family Center provides family-oriented resources that focus on parenting, literacy, life skills, computer skills, and activities for senior citizens. The center promotes self-reliance in families and individuals by providing essential knowledge and resources tailored to the needs of the community members from infancy through senior adulthood.

Crestwood envisions a school in which academic excellence is paramount, the arts are celebrated, cultural and linguistic diversity is honored, and all learners meet their personal academic goals.
  • We believe that all children learn when provided a nurturing environment and instructional strategies that address their individual learning styles and needs.
  • We believe that all staff members at Crestwood Elementary are dedicated professionals who view all the children in the school as their responsibility and who impart their love of learning to all.
  • We believe that parents are their children's first and best teachers and that the partnership between family and school is essential to our success.
