About this school

Crocker Highlands Elementary School is located in the Trestle Glen neighborhood, above Lakeshore Avenue. Teachers, parents, students, and staff all work together to ensure that our children develop a love for learning. Our focus is on the 21st Century skills of communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity. We meet these goals using District-adopted materials, supported by problem-solving, engaging and diverse literature, and meaningful units of study across the curriculum. Students have the opportunity to learn Spanish, work in the edible garden, participate in a physical activity program, sing in the vocal music program, borrow books from the library, and work on projects in the computer lab. Much of our success is due to the strong faculty, staff, PTA, and our community volunteers who help in the classroom, office, and on the playground every day.
