My children spent three years at Crestview and loved each year!!! The Crestview Staff work as a team and help to create a positive learning environment for the children. The principal, Dr. Ken Faulk, is always available and does a fantastic job as a leader and as a principal. The PTA does a phenomenal job of hosting activities that are fun and contributes funds for programs such as Razzle Bam Boom, Zoo to You, Art, and Band. We miss our Crestview Family!!

We absolutely love Crestview! The teachers are wonderful and do a great job working together. My son is in kindergarten and every single kindergarten teacher knows him an welcomes him when they see him. The principal is amazing! He is very involved with the students and is always available to help whoever needs it - a teacher, a students, parents. He isn't just a guy in the office. The PTA is very active, and parents are very involved. Everyone really works as a team here, and we have loved it. It is a wonderful little community that we are happy to be apart of.

My son attended Crestview last year and we left. It was too competitive and there are only a handful of good teachers. If you get one of them, you are doing great there but if you get a teacher that is there on their tenure, you are not. Sad, cute school.

Do not be fooled by the high test scores, they are simply a result of students that transfer in from schools in states with higher academic standards. As this school is on a military base, frequent influx of children from higher achiving schools helps the facade and portrays the school as high achieving when in reality this is actually average compared to most. The principal is unhelpful if you are experiencing any issues. My sons attended this school and I was unhappy with the overall level of teaching and had to remove my children.

My daughter has been attending Crestview Elementary for three years now and has loved it. The students are almost always happy and even excited to go to school and my daughter has loved all of her teachers so far. The teachers are great with the kids and put extra effort in to making sure that the kids are successful and motivated. The environment is loving and well structured and leaves both the students and their parents feeling safe and secure. Our family just loves Crestview!

I cannot speak highly enough about Crestview Elementary. In particular the teachers and Principal, Dr Faulk. We moved to the US from The United Kingdom (we are British) last year. My daughter was terrified at the prospect of attending not only a new school but in a new country where she knew nobody. Her teacher (Mrs Mitchell) was outstanding and instrumental in ensuring a smooth transition from the British school system. Similarly the Principal, Dr Faulk went out of his way to approach us every day and find out how we were and check everything was ok. My daughter is thriving in this school and has now been placed on the GATE program. I would recommend this school to anyone and I am thankful my daughter has the opportunity to attend such an amazing school.

The office staff, principle, and teacher feel like family! They take the time to get to know their students. The PTA is wonderful and works so hard to provide every great opportunity for the children. We love Crestview!

We love Crestview Elementary! The teachers, principal, and staff are amazing! The PTA works hard to provide all of the students with extra curricular activities that would have otherwise been cut due to budget cuts. My children are always eager to go to school because they are so proud to be Crestview Cougars!

This school tries very hard to work with every dollar they have... PTA is wonderful, they work tirelessly to make sure the kids have fun events, extra activities; like dances, Harry Potter Club, Band, etc. to name a few. The Principal welcomes everyone, every morning without fail. The kids are eager to learn!

Crestview's test scores look very good, but I think it should be noted that this school has a limited number of second language learners and special education students compared to other schools in this district. The principal is notorious for quickly transferring children that have special needs out of his school; it is assumed by many that this is simply so that these children do not negatively affect the test scores of his school. If you have children with special needs, do not waste time dealing with this principal. You will waste your child's precious time. As a parent with children who did not have special needs, I found that my child with above average abilities was also NOT challenged. Because he did not present as a behavior challenge either, he was left to languish. For all of the fuss over their high test scores, one has to ask, how could they NOT be a distinguished school with minimal special education students, minimal second language learners, plugged in parents (as bases usually have), and students that transfer in from schools in states with higher academic standards. This school is actually average compared to most.

We loved this school and miss it! The academic criteria is by far one of the best in this county. They encourage children to be the best they can be and are dedicated in seeing children succeed. I loved seeing the Principle out every morning saying good morning to the students and parents. To me, this showed he really cared about the students. In addition I loved the organization this school has and the PTA is outstanding! My son came home everyday happy and excited about returning the next day:)

My children and I love this school. Most of the students are kids of military parents who move frequently. The teacher's and staff are very welcoming to students who transfer in the middle of the school year as well as students who are new to the school. The PTA is very involved in the school. They hold lots of fun events for the students as well as raising money for needed items the school district and state can't afford. Parents are very involved with the school. The school has a great community. Parents walk their children to school and kids ride their bikes. We will miss this school when we have to move for our next assignment. My children have enjoyed attending Crestview.

I think that this school is great as far as test scores but that seems like that is their only focus, If you have a child with PDD, ADD or ADHD I strongly suggest that you go to another school they did not accomaodate my son and his needs and are quick to blame parents.

My children attended Crestview for 3 years, I had a child in every grade except 1st and I have very high expectations. I was never once disappointed! Crestview is a fantastic school and my children received a super education. The principal and staff are intelligent, caring and hard-working. Everyone is fully engaged and keeps in mind the special needs of the military family. School spirit is top-notch. Best of all, children learn, learn, learn. The focus on reading is very impressive. After leaving the district and moving to a new state, i am once again impressed with the education my children received. They are doing well in a new military school and Crestview prepared them and delivered. They are right on target with their peers from other locations. Thanks Cougars!

Crestview Elementary was a fantastic school for both of our children during our three years on Vandenberg AFB. The school has very limited resources, as do all California schools, but it makes up for it with the great teachers and staff and their willingness to provide for the kids. The PTA is top notch and works very hard to raise funds which provide programs such as art, music, assemblies, and other types of programs that our children deserve to experience as a part of their education. The PTA does everything they can to make up for the lack of funds that California can't seem to afford thier schools. The principal is very kind and cares for every child. He's a great role model and the kids adore him. Crestview consistently scores high on State Testing and has the best attendance in the District. Go Cougars!

Crestview is a fantastic school! The entire school is so positive. The principal, Dr. Falke, is tuned in and concerned about the kids, and they feel it, I have never seen more smiling kids. The teachers are amazing (we love to Mrs. Mitchell). They accomplish so much with the limited resources CA allows their students. The PTA and parents are highly involved and raise tons of money to help fill CAs gaps in funding. If you want your child to get great education AND enjoy it, Crestview is for you!

Crestview is an exceptional school. I have my daughter at crestview as her 'school of choice'. She is happy, excelling, and loves school. It's true that some of the extra curricular activities that you may find in other states is lacking, however that has nothing to do with the choices that this school has made. They are at the mercy of the state and its finanial nightmare. The teachers go above and beyond to provide a well rounded experience for students. The PTA is astounding! So much money is raised to afford programs that the state is no longer providing. Music, dance, art and the school has a great PE program-I am thrilled that my daughter will start off her academic career on such a positive track! Great job Crestview teachers, staff and principal.

The teacher's have been wonderful. The school district in general has not been good. Poor planning has caused the school to shift kids and teachers around pretty consistantly. I've had great teacher experiences there.

Crestview's new principal, Dr Faulk is exceptional. The PTA is fabulous. Parent involvement seems to be high at Crestview. I am not aware of any music or art classes which is disappointing. The Lompoc Unified School District lunch program is very disappointing if you are at all concerned with nutrition. Some variation would be nice. Overall, I think Crestview rates as superior to the surrounding schools, adequate when compared nationally. In other words, stay on base unless you plan to go to private school and pack a lunch.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
