Crystal City Elementary School is ok. They are a little behind other school in the curriculum. I like that there are a small number of students per class. But, I believe they made a bad decision in moving 7th & 8th graders to the high school. The junior high students and High school should merge with Herculaneum since both schools lost so many with the R-7 high school opening.

Crystal City Elementary is a great school. I love the small town atmosphere. All the teachers know all the students and really care. Both the previous principal and the current principal have done an amazing job. Both of my kids have had nothing but great teachers and are excelling at school. I believe the parents could be more involved as the PTO has very few members and not nearly enough help.

My family transferred to Crystal City in 2006. He was behind his peers due to the school we moved from. Crystal quickly arranged tutoring and programs for him and he quickly caught up. The teachers are wonderful and caring. The only thing we need is more parents supporting the PTO and school. Come on Parents...we need to get things done at our school and we need you to be involved!!!!!!!

I am a parent of a child in Crystal City Elementary School. We have had a wonderful and educational experience at Crystal City. The principal seems to have a great vision for the future of the building and the teachers are very committed and willing to communicate with parents. The small town community feeling is wonderful and very relaxing for a child and parent.

I am a parent of a child at Crystal City Elementary School. We have a had a wonderful experience at Crystal after moving from a larger school district in our area. This past year was an exciting one for my daughter. She did very well and the teachers celebrated along with her. The atmosphere is positive and upbeat. The home town feel is very inviting. We are looking forward to another great year.

I have a daughter that recently came from a larger school to Crystal City. As soon as I enrolled my daughter I was met by the friendly seretaries, Principal, Counselor, and my daughter's teacher. My questions were answered and I felt welcome to the school. Throughout the school year there were different types of activities from sports to book club that my daughter to be envolved in with the other students. At the Junior High level everyone gets a chance to participate. The overall atmosphere of the school was very pleasant. The staff were great about making my daughter feel welcome and to ensure that she had a good first day of school.

Crystal City elementary has had a wonderful year with a new principal and is making great strides. The teachers are caring and go out of their way to make the students successful. Parents could do more to help make the school atmosphere better.

Teaching is poor, students are not prepared for the next grade although there are a few exceptions. New principal is doing a good job but teachers, especially in the junior high are absoltuely horrible. I hope 8th grade is better than last year. Kids are nice but there is zero expectation in the building.

I find Crystal City elementary to be undisciplined and boring for gifted children. The one good teacher my son had left after only one year. The current principal seems to have little understanding of 'parental control.' Communication to parents is extremely poor. The students seem friendly and my children have a lot of friends. They were welcomed in well. Both are involved in afterschool programs, art, computers, and choir. I am hoping with a new principal that the entire dynamic will change.

Faculty and staff seem genuinely concerned about the children. There is a home town atmosphere and comfort about the school. Teachers do not appear to be overwhelmed and are patient and concerned at an individual level. Facility is clean and well maintained, but not elaborate. School pride is evident with the Hornet spirit. Children are accepting and kind spirited. Many walk to school in this safer area. Orientation for 'new students' not well organized, there isn't a lot of turn over for teachers or students. This is a very stable community. Teachers show genuine interest. We have a special needs child and have received personal reports weekly, without asking for it. GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) program is active and challenging. After school care is YMCA and well organized and interesting to our 11 year old.
