    What a great place for children to learn. A place where the Teachers know each student and their parents. You can't say that for many schools. High school students are able to participate in any sport they want to try and not suffer through being cut from the team if they don't measure up. Each graduating 2007 senior received at least a $1 300.00 scholarship if they are interested in going on to college. Office staff are just wonderfull.

    If you are looking for a small school where parents have a say and the school board will listen and hear your comments then you're looking at just that school. Crescent shcool has just added to the electives in the highschool level and seem to be looking for new opportunities to help all students acheive. Crescent school has music art sports drama etc.. If you are looking for parent involvement activities look into the booster club or ask any teacher or staff member and they would be happy to direct you in the right path.

    Crescent was a great school when I was a student there nearly 25 years ago and has proven to be as good for my 3 children. The smaller class room sizes and dedicated staff make all the difference between being one of many and unimportant to being part of the the school being an important indivisual and knowing they are all cared about.

    Crescent is a small rural school that is striving to provide excellence in education. Dedicated teachers small classes and excellent core curriculum make this school a great choice! They won't get lost in the masses. They (we) are currently seeking funding to improve extracurricular programs. Great community!

    Excellent progressive program that is continually improving to meet the needs at this small rural school. Small classes and campus mean each child recieves individual personal attention. Terrific science and technology program!
