    I pulled my kids out of this school a couple of years ago. The principal feels he can do anything he wants on school grounds even for a person taking pictures of his kids on a cell phone like everyone else. Great if you are Hispanic not so great if you are white. I know of at least 6 kids pulled out due to principal's absurd overreach of authority. So glad I pulled them out and placed them in a better school! I do have to thank him for that! Best decision we made. Some people say the principal calls all the kids by name... not so sure that is true.

    My school is crestwood elementary. My daughter attends at the PSI program for special eduacation and its been not a good experience at all. I really recommend all parents who has a special kid not to enroll them there.

    The children at Crestwood display what is being shown to them by example great job teachers whom create a family unit outside the home. I can only hope and pray that other schools could be this well organized and full of concern for others this is the kind of school I wish I went to when I was going up...

    Teachers some of them need to learn about the student's diversity it is hard for them to deal with kids from different cultures. Some teacher are absent way too often and kids are left with subs. The kids at this school have a good performance because their parents have the money to send them to special classes after school. There are non or very little activities for kid after school and the school are more worried about rasing money than making their teachers do their job.

    Crestwood is a very good school the pricipal is great knows every kid by name and also greets the students as they come to school. The teachers are great. Only if the front office people would be a little more polite when answering the phones or directing a parent.

    Its a great school if your child learns at a normal rate and doesnt have any academic problems. Most teachers are truely wonderful but cannot seem to work outside the box to help a child that learns a little differently than the average child.

    This school has great school spirit and a principal who is present at all times it seems.

    The academics are okay. I dont like that all the students need to stay at the same book as their classmates. So if one is ahead they cant excel because they are waiting for the others to catch up.Also the play area for the 1-5th graders. There is only blacktop to play and the classes are designated certain areas to play.

    I was a substitute teacher at this school for 1 year. I loved working here. The principal is outstanding! He knows every student by name. All teachers go the extra mile for the students. Loved the experience and will be sending my son here in the Fall.

    My son went here from Kindergarden thru fifth grade. We loved the over all care for the students.Parents were allowed to be envolved as much as they desired.The principal was right on it when my son was bullied and ended it immediately. Field trips were fun and informative.

    This is the best school on the face of the earth. The staff is like family. They are there to provide what is best for the children. They want the parents to be there and help. Things are handled fairly for the whole student body and staff. There are times that I can almost see the wings and halos on some of the staff.

    My son was at your school 1 1/2 ago and he was there for 3yrs. Mr.Watanabe gave him alot of confidence and reasurance that he needs. Thank You to everyone at Crestwood that helped him you guys left a lasting impression on him all he talks about is Crestwood and Mr. Watanabe's 3rd 4th and 5th grade class he had with him. So Crestwood keep up the good work!
