The school is nice with great teachers but i agree there is too much fighting


Posted May 21, 2014

The administration at this school does not care about the well being of its students.It is supposed to be a anti-bullying school that is just a joke. They work to protect the actual bullys and not the good children that receive good grades and get along with everyone.This school and the administration is the biggest joke!!!!!!

I go to Crestwood Middle School. I think Crestwood is a great school. It may be getting very crowded though, and teachers need to pay more attention to the students problems with eachother.

Crestwood Middle School is fantasic. Teachers and staff work together with the families of students to create a helathy learning environment for all students. The school has a bunch of technology available to teach students in a variety of ways. The teachers and staff are wonderful and work to motivate students on an individual level.

I go to this school and it's very nice, clean, and fun school. The teachers are great and all of the staff is helpful, and caring. The only problem I find is that there is a lot of fighting.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Maryland used the Maryland School Assessment (MSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The MSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maryland. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
