Crestmont Elementary School is a well established & well liked school in the Roseville area. From the children that attend to the teachers that teach it is all around a wonderful school. Our school could is in need of some upgraded technology. Other than that we love it at Crestmont Elementary School.

Crestmont Elementary is a fabulous elementary school in Roseville. Teachers, principal and staff are focused on the education, growth, health and happiness of each student. Respect and caring is nurtured among the students. There is tremendous parent involvement and collaboration with the teachers. Students have the opportunity to be active in our Crestmont Cruisers Running Club, Student Council and other activities that help make a well-rounded person. There is tremendous pride in everyone affiliated with the school. Kids respect each other, the teachers and the campus. Our children are very happy and thriving.

Crestmont is an excellant school, in which we have enjoyed being apart of for over 4 years. The teachers and staff go above and beyond for the students, including the Principal. My children feel safe and comfortable and they are getting an incredible education. What more could a parent want.

This is our 4th year and Crestmont and our second child just started on this, the 50th year anniversary of the school. Years ago we considered a private school but were so happy with the education, attention, leadership and caring that this school provides we wouldn't go anywhere else. The teachers take the time needed to help progress both the advanced learners as well as the student who need a little more help. There are many volunteers in the classrooms and running special events for the children which really makes the environment fun and supportive. The school has many good activities which help the children explore new things, like the art docent program, the be enthusiastic about reading (BEAR) program, Crestmont Cruisers running club. We have really bonded with our teachers and they always say hi and ask the kids about their lives because they took the time to get to know them which was really important to us. This school has been a wonderful start to our children s academic career and i know that their foundation is strong which will help them go far. Go Coyotes!

This is our fourth year at Crestmont and we couldn't be more pleased with our experience. Our daughter has had phenomenal teachers every year and the support staff is always professional and knowledgeable. Mr. Sorenson, the principal, has been at Crestmont for twenty years. He is visible on campus and always available to listen to parent concerns. The children all have a rigorous P.E. lesson from a P.E. teacher twice each week. The campus is always clean and well maintained. The students are well-behaved and I have never heard of a major discipline problem. The only thing Crestmont lacks is technology for a 21st century classroom. Regardless, I feel confident that my children will get the most out of their educations by attending Crestmont.

This is our family's 5th year at Crestmont. We have 2 daughters that attend and they have always had great teachers. The staff in the office is terrific, very friendly and helpful. Overall, I think that Crestmont has a lot of great programs to offer it's students. There are always lots of fun and educational events going on. The faculty seem to genuinely care about the success of each student. Also, the school welcomes and encourages parent involvement. Overall, we are very pleased with the quality of education our kids are getting at Crestmont.

Fantastic school, great teachers and wonderful , active, involved principal. Our child started at a private school and then switched to Crestmont and Crestmont is so much better. Cannot think of a bad thing to say about anyone involved with this school!

Crestmont Elementary has some of the best teachers and aids in Placer county. My child has another child in class with special needs and one of the aids, Diana Nurenberg has done a great job helping with that childs education. I have observed that child enjoying school now and becoming involved in interacting with the other kids in a positive way. In the past that child had trouble interacting with others children. Diana has helped not only that child, But the other children are able to enjoy their school time now as well. Thank You Mrs. Nurenberg

This is a fabulous school with a great staff. My daugther is in 1st grade and she had a wonderful teacher, in Mrs. Fischer. Words can't explain her, you'd have to see her in action. She mixed in compassion with fairness and structure. The school is small but very close knit. Lot's of parent involvement. Principal is very hands on and willing to listen and meet with parents to discuss issues. I am greatful that I live in the Roseville School District. I can't say enough good things about this school.

This school is often called the 'hidden gem' of elementary schools in the city. It's population is small, and the parents and teachers are heavily involved. They do a pretty good job of integrating arts and music into the daily curriculum and seem to have the money to keep the facilities updated and offer fun student and family activities. There does not seem to be any restrictions on teacher's use of paper, copy machines and printers. In other words, I do not get the impression they have cost restrictions at the expense of the students and teachers. I do not think they are as advanced with technology as some bay area schools and there is some room for improvement in parent communications. Overall the teachers are great and the academic standards seem satisfactory to parents.

My child is in 2nd grade and I have to say that I have been quite impressed with the quality of his education. Secondly, the teachers offer an enviroment in which nutures the students emotionally and they teach the children to not only respect themselves but to respect others. I feel the school has a wonderful comroderie for the kids as well as the parents.
