The principal only cars about the money the more students she can have in the school the more money they get. Some of the students are 19-20 years old with 3-6 credits. Lots of drugs being used by students in the bathrooms or outside the building. Students come and go whenever they want some never go into a classroom all day.

Crestview is a really good school. All the teachers make sure the students understand what they're teaching. I like how its small and everybody knows each other unlike bigger schools.

I have been a teacher at Crestview for almost four years and it has been the most positive teaching experience that I have had in my twenty plus years of teaching. Our staff emphasizes our school s core values of Community, Integrity, and Principle on a daily basis through instruction and daily interactions with the students. In addition to the core values, we emphasize and provide the students with the necessary tools to succeed academically and in life. I have never worked with a more dedicated staff that genuinely cares about their students and their student s success. Crestview has smaller class sizes which enables the teachers to get to know all of their students and their student s strengths and weaknesses. If a student is struggling, we are able to give them one-on-one teaching and tutoring(before and after school). For those students who are more advanced, we are able to provide more rigorous and challenging opportunities through dual enrollment for college credit. But like any school, we have our challenges and we realize there is always room for growth and accept all of these challenges head on so we can improve. I extremely proud to be part of Crestview.

Having taught in both traditional and non-traditional school environments, I can say that the program at Crestview College Preparatory is definitely unique. The program is very goal-oriented and the possibility exists for students to tailor their school experience to their individual needs. Students who are craving a rigorous pace can find it here, and extra help or instructional time is available for students who may need it. Another thing that is unique about the Crestview Program is the ability to go from middle school (7th and 8th) through high school in the same school program. Students who are struggling in traditional environments and students who are on a faster track and want to get ahead can BOTH benefit from the smaller class sizes. If one had to sum up Crestview College Prep in one word, that word would be opportunity.

CCP is dedicated to the academic achievement of those students who struggle with a traditional scholastic setting. From the Administration on down, helping students realize their potential and focus on long term educational goals is the lifeblood of what occurs on a daily basis. Working with the non-traditional student, Crestview's dedication to parents, the community and the individual, creates a well rounded student capable of facing the difficult challenges of the world around them, making them a superior choice when searching for an alternative education environment to the large campus monoliths where students can feel more like a number than a person. Crestview's individual attention to each student fosters a learning environment where students can excel to heights not achieved before. Crestview is a home where students are know by their name, not their number and there is a true belief by all stakeholders that every student can be a success story.

I have taught at Crestview for 3 years. This school is unique. I have substitute taught at many charter schools in this area, and I can tell you that this school does so much more for our students than many other schools. I can tell you that the teachers and staff spend countless hours on campus for our students: we spend much time helping our students in whatever way is needed. Sometimes we help academically, sometimes athletically, sometimes socially. Do we have students that need extra guidance and help? Yes! Do we have students that are brilliant and looking for a place to thrive? Yes! Do we have students that want a place to belong and be a part of a family where they can show progress, and feel good about succeeding in something? Yes! Do we help to foster a sense of responsibility, integrity, community and a love for learning? Yes! Some of our students come in with some really rough edges... and we love watching them graduate smooth and polished. Many times this takes much patience and love, and sometimes it requires firm discipline. We try to find what will have a student be the best they can be in any situation they find themselves in in life.

Personally i like that, the teachers take time to work with you and understand you. They're always there if you need help with anything. The students get along with eachother because this school is small and you get an opportunity to make great friends.

I came to this school from "normal" high schools who did not believe I would graduate. They gave me no hope for my future and treated me as if I was just a burden to them. I came to this school and quickly realized that it was not a normal high school, it was better than that. Teachers here are very helpful and understand that students have other real life problems, unlike regular high schools that could really care less about their students' problems, here at Crestview the teachers try and work with them in order for the students to achieve the highest success. Now that I have been here at this school for two years I am not on track to graduate with my class and even better, I am retaking classes that I had trouble with in my other schools; I would have never been able to do this at any other school. I am so happy that I made the right choice of coming to this school. I am thankful to all the teachers and staff, especially the principal, for helping me get to this point and believing in me. I am proud to be a Crestview Knight.

if you think having a principal that says what your child has to say means nothing to her then i think this school reALLY IS NOT THE SCHOOLD FOR SOME CHILDREN BECAUSE SHE DID THAT TO US

This school is going to be a great fit for your child if... S/he: thrives in a small environment respects authority functions in an individual-oriented environment is comfortable in a multicultural school Crestview is led by a wonderful administrator and a staff of dedicated, unique educators who tailor their teaching styles to their students. Tough when necessary, relaxed when appropriate. This is not a 'one size fits all' school. Your child will not get lost in the crowd.

Crestview College Prepatory is a great school to consider if your having a hard time adjusting to the regular high school. The school is smaller so it makes it easier too get to know the teacher, the teacher actualle gets to know the student as well. The theachers go above and beyond to assist a student if he's struggling with something. All they wanna do is push you to success,

Crestview College Preparatory is an excellent school. They have helped me out a lot. I dont think i would have ever graduated if it weren't for them. When I needed help they would set everything aside just to help me. I would recommend this school to anyone that wants to be successful in life, and have an awesome high school experience.

i've been here for 4 years since my first year of freshman year. i started out being unpopular and with no friends. I now have confidence and have tons of friends and i graduated with a scholarship and being the President of the National Honor Society. I loved volleyball and it really honestly doesn't need improvement.

Crestview has been a GREAT school for my daughter. The teachers and staff build strong relationships with all students; hold them to high expectations and provide a great deal of support for all students to experience success and prepare them for college. It is clear that the teachers and staff truly care about each student and work with them individually to reach their goals.

This school helped me acheive a college education by leading me towards the ACE program. Without the wonderful staff and safe learning environment I would of probably been a high school drop out. ( Vice Principal ) is one of the most caring people I have ever met and she will always help you succeed in whatever you want to do. C.C.P wants the best for their students. ALWAYS. 5 star school.

My child throughly enjoyed her experince at ocotillo hs. She attended four years there and graduated early last year. She not only passed her aims test but did well on them. The class sizes were small and she had truley dedicated teachers. I never heard a complaint from her about this school, until her last block there.

The school was an overall good school all though some things could be improved. The academic aspect was a quality one for the most part but could be more challenging to some students who need. The teachers were very good the faculty did were good at keeping employes who were beneficial to the students.
