My daughter goes to this school and its very wonderful! shes learning all kinds of matireal and the teachers are great! (exept a 7th grade civics teacher named Mr.Towne, the students say hes extremely mean and unfair and makes very rude remarks) other then that ,wonderful school:)
Considerd One Of the BEST if not THE BEST Middle School in PBC. Crestwood is a cluster school which means we meet the needs of both ESE and Gifted students as well as our other 6th, 7th & 8th graders. On a regular basis we have approx. 550 students on the A and A/B honor roll. We are an A rated school with the top scores in FCAT and other testing fields. The reason this is happening is because we LOVE our students and strive to help them succeed. We are proud to be a Crestwood Eagle!
This school is a great school with a great program for your child. Crestwood teaches your child[ren] everything they need to know to get ready for high school and the teachers are very good teachers. My child loves the school and is involved in extra-curricular activities. Crestwood has great programs for honors and gifted students. Personally this is one of the best middle schools in Palm Beach.
It's too bad more people are not aware of this site, there would be a great deal of positive feedback about this wonderful school! Crestwood has an amazing hands-on principal that is there for both the students and parents. Her door is always open! This year the school revitalized the PTO and had increased parent/teacher involvement. This school received the highest FCAT writing score in all of Palm Beach County and has been an A school for the past 8 years. They have programs for both Gifted and ESE students and offer numerous activities to all Crestwood students. The teachers care about the students. No school will ever be considered 'Perfect', but this school is making it's way there!
Well i have many diffrent comments about the school. And what the parents are saying is not true what so ever. They dont make you pay for the planner. And when u pay for a planner it is because your child has lost it. Teachers dont give attitueds they try to help...And they listen so bad things dont happen in crestwood....It can get very boring i have to admit but they encourge you to work your hardest and when a student fails thay have a program called pass and this is when a student gets and f thay make your child come in an hour earlyer and retake what he/she was failing...And it helps alot and i want to add i have been in crestwood since 6th grade and i do enjoy being there i am in 8th grade and i am going to miss this school...
This school is okay. Im in th 8th grade and ive been there since 6th grade.The school gets boreing but has a lot of extra activities.
Worst school my child has attened to date. They don't post homework on line. They make you buy a planner that the teachers don't use. Very unsatisfactory progress with children with disabilities. Teacher communication is very poor, they do not respond or when they do they have an attitude. Find a different school!
As a mom of two and a aunt of two that went to Crestwood, I would have given great reveiws 2 or 3 years ago but, in the last 2 years the school to me has taken a big drop in there program. I have not been happy with there safety programs, and as another mom had comented you usually don't find out or here from a teacher until your child is in great trouble.
I was told the overall school was an a+ school.I haven't been very impressed with them at all.I have sent notes to the school for teachers to contact me, to no avail. The only time they will call is when things get out of control.I wouldnt be this upset if there were more parent teacher phone calls.
This school has many great teachers, but they are lost amidst the phoney hype and red tape. 'Problems' are swept under the rug. Children who need more attention are regarded as 'blemishes' and transferred out or left behind to fail. Only children who are actually getting an F as a grade are offered any help - by then it's usually too late. I am disappointed in this school and it doesn't deserve an A rating. Credit is given for things which have no bearing on education - but it sure makes there scores look better.
Good school, my son was in the gifted program and got a lot of hands-on teaching and left with a strong sense of self. There are multiple clubs, sports, etc. They could do with a bit more arts programs but overall I was satisfied with the extracurricular oppurtunities.
Most of the teachers are this school were very good..the principle on the other hand leaves alot to be desired.
I think this school is great. The principle is very involved daily with the kids, and the teachers are very enthusiastic with the kids. My daughter and son have done great in the school, and other kids I know that attend or have attended.
I think this school was very good. I had a great experience there. My teachers were the best and I had the oppurtunity to have them for all three years of middle school. The only thing I did not like was the fact that they do not provide an art class.
Crestwood Middle school is an awesome school. My kids have great education there. The teachers are outstanding. Ms. Garcia is an excellent principle at Crestwood Middle School.
Im a student a Crestwood Middle school, This school gives a great educational program and all the teachers really do become your friend.... I would recomend this school to anyone who is wondering.
my son went to crestwood for three years and he got a great education at this school. we highly recommend this school for anyone looking for a middle school to send thier child to.
