Crestview is a terrific school. My son is in 2nd grade and loves it there. The ethnic diversity is huge for us so he's exposed to different cultures from an early age. The leadership is exceptional, Mr. Wallace is a gift, and each one of my son's teachers has been creative, forward thinking and enthusiastic about teaching.

My son really likes the school. Does seem to be a large student teacher ratio. My son is dyslexic and there was some resistance on getting him tested. We went to childrens mercy to have it done. The teachers for the most part seem to care about the kids. Overall I think its a pretty decent school.

Crestview is over crowded and has a mainstream test oriented teaching style. My children are constantly falling under stereo types and being neglected but I chop it up to being 80 to 100 kids over the limit. I wouldn't find this frustrating if other schools in the North KC school district weren't below attendance levels such as lakewood and davidson. Needless to say our kids will be in private school next year.

My daughter is in the gifted program and still finds her regular classroom activities challenging at times. The staff is always willing to lend a extra hand and seems to be very on top of it. One of the best schools for diversity as well. Love it!

About the tests


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