I love that the staff is so caring with the kids and parents. My kids went there for summer school and they were happy to learn everyday. They have a very clean school and are very organized.

I've had 3 children go through Crestview and I couldn't be happier. Crestview has caring, involved staff and teachers. Mr. Ross is a great principal. My kids have always been involved in intramurals and crossing guard, which are both worthy programs. Crestview has a neat African Drum band that was started by a dedicated teacher, accepting faculty and a grant from Target. Crestview has a very diverse population. Recent additions to the school have kept it up to date. The teachers and specialists have been very good about detecting and advising for special needs.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Minnesota used the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment-II (MCA-II) to test students in math in grade 11. The MCA-II is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Minnesota. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
