the standards of this school are high the teachers are very involved in each childs individual educational needs. im very glad my child had the oppurtunity to be a student here for the past 3 years. thank you crestwood

I believe the parent in the last review doesn't understand that there is bad parenting and many students are products of nature and nurture. By the time time they reach elementary school, many habits such as yelling, disobedience, and inappropriate behavior have already been acquired. It is difficult for teachers to be parent, teachers, police, lawyers, amoung their other responsibilities. Maybe the parent should become a teacher and try to make a change, instead pf complaining about the people who are trying. I'm sure your child is an angel, right? Crestwood is a wonderful school and many of the families there are not involved in their childrens lives, so blame the parents.

Okay well i am a parent that isnt satisfied with thtis school.Let me tell you why. Because i have seen better schools for example Robert E. Lake or they call it just Lake elementary. Any ways i have gone to meetings with these teachers and they dont do what is best for your child. I enter many classes and there is a lot of hollering and argueing and all the teachers dont do nothing about it. 0 stars for Crestwood in my opinion.

Crestwood is a top notch school!! I had the pleasure of teaching at Crestwood for three years and now that I have moved, I really miss the learning and teaching environment that Crestwood provides both its teachers and its students!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Nevada used the Criterion Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The CRT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Nevada. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
