My kindergarten son attends Annunciation and he is thriving both academically and socially. He's a quick learner and started pre-k here already recognizing all alphabet letters and numbers. The school offers a sound academic foundation, within a strong community. The afterschool clubs offer some exposure to extracurricular activities, as well as sports that begin in 1st grade and fundraisers/parent association activities. We considered yonkers public schools, but annunciation offered much more than an academic curriculum.

I sent my 5 yr old to Annunciation for the full day pre-k program. Bottom line it was a waste of money- after spending almost $7,000 she doesn't even know her vowels or complete alphabet. She does know her Hail Mary though (sarcasm added). Don't waste your money here- the principal is a cold hearted woman and evidently the academics stink

While there are a few dedicated professionals; the education is sub-par and antiquated. The principal's main objective is to collect as much money as possible from families, while she blatantly caters to those with deep pockets and fund raising abilities. It is difficult economic times. However, for all those fees she should be working on being more informed, and embracing the ideas and methodologies needed in education in 2014, in order for all students to be academically successful. Behaviors in general --of staff, parents and even some students, are a direct contradiction with the Christian values supposedly instilled and taught in the school. What a shame !

My children attend this school and since the arrival of the new principal (going on 2nd year), it is steadily going downhill. A FEW of the teachers and support staff have left and for the first time in 5 years I am actually considering sending my children elsewhere. The principal has no interest in outside input from her staff (I've been told) or from the parents (witnessed first hand). Her communication skills are lacking - she is very cold and curt and is truly of the mindset it's her way or the highway. The ONLY thing keeping my children there right now are their teachers and if any more of them leave, so will my children. I've seen some reviews complaining that the parents are unwelcoming to outsiders of the Crestwood community. I moved to Yonkers almost 6 years ago and from day 1 was welcomed to the school and invited to Crestwood area events. The parents are VERY involved with everything.

I find the school to be excellent, the parents are involved and volunteer with many of the activitys. There is a womans guild and a mens club. I find the teachers to be good and push my daughter to be her best. It's not perfect and some parents can be clichy and shun out the outsiders of thecrestwood society, however that is not why you send your child to school. The academics are very good and after school activities are great.

Overall I have been happy at this school. However, the Crestwood parents are 'clicky' leading to an initial unwelcome feeling. Also, it would be nice if there were more activities and the children were allowed to run at recess!!

Annunciation School is the heart of the Crestwood Community. It is a unique Catholic School in that the level of parental involvment is tremendous. It is a very safe school in which the principle and the assistant principle know each individual student by name as well as their family. The school has a strict discipline policy which many of the public schools should adopt! Academically it is outstanding and the students who graduate have their choice of attending the best high schools. The extracurricular activities keep increasing and varying in fields of interest from sports to mock trial! Annunciation School is a model school and it is a shame that the Yonkers Public Schools fall so far short of Annunciation's accomplishments. The principle is caring and concerned for each student and their respective family.

I had 4 children attend this school, i found it very rewarding of each one of my children that graduated and attended their high school/college of their choice and this would of not been, for the excellent education foundation they had.

It has the potential to be a great school. Parents are willing to participate and assist. Unfortunately, the administration does not promote parental involvement in the school and they do not promote creative thought.
