Creslane is fantastic! The principal has a wonderful positive behavior program that has produced wonderful results! The kids get to have soap box derby car races in the gym, water fights, marshmallow fights and many other fun events each month. I was so impressed with the academic results across all grades last year. Our school is so close to being one of the few model schools in the state because of the great teachers and our wonderful principal! We also still have a pE and music program, while many schools around us have cut those programs. My daughters class has only 22 students! ...significantly less than most other schools I've seen in this area. My daughter is in 3rd grade and has loved every year...she started in the first grade. You can't go wrong with Creswell school district.,

Great school! My son is in second grade and loves his teacher, which is a first for him. Kindergarten is only part time, which is a problem for children with special needs. awesome school and teachers and office staff are always very helpful.

I have been absolutely amazed with Creslane Elementary. The school is very supportive. They focus on rewarding positive behavior- with a monthly school-wide activity for children who have followed the rules, as well as innovative classroom prizes- getting to do their work in pen, taking their shoes off in the school, or walking backwards through the halls. These sorts of incentives work well with my ADHD child, keeping her active and engaged. In the classroom, "wiggle cushions" and doing work on the floor give my child enough freedom of movement that she does not feel controlled. An earlier school we had been at was very strict, and that sort of "box" created a system in which my daughter felt suffocated and stifled, causing her to continually fight back. The teachers are very involved, asking how they can help, and making sure the children are challenged (many children with mental/emotional/behavioral problems are also gifted academically). These teachers have not only made sure my child is not bored- but making sure my child is actively learning. She is now thriving. I cannot praise the staff enough for what they have done. Creslane is an excellent fit for my ADHD child.

The teachers are terrible and the principal is out of touch! There is no open house and volunteering is discouraged! The office personel are at best rude!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this school. I have had experience over the years with many elementary schools. This is by far the best one ever! The teachers are wonderful, caring, warm and very pleasant to work with. My kids are never ready for school to get out and every Sept open house takes longer and longer as they all have to go back and see each of their teachers from previous years! With both foster children and my own there have been a variety of issues, learning styles, etc and they have all been handled with great communication and love for the students. They have a wonderful music program with Mr Telford offering guitar lessons on his own time in the spring and a choir for 4th and 5th grades. Just a wonderful, wonderful school! We're very proud to be part of this community.

Excellent school and system. Teachers are attentive, receptive, compassionate as well as devoted to their students both as a collective and as individuals. There school spirit activities weekly teach and encourage respect of all students and adults. This school has the best teachers in the country. One of which won a national award for her lesson plans and her teaching methods. They offer activities out side of the school that promote awareness of cultural differences as well as unity. Trips to the Hult Center of the Performing Arts for plays and musical experiences as well trips to museums and many other activities and events. Not to mention that this school is located in a very cute, quiet community that is growing rapidly due to it's charm. We grew up here and are familiar with all the schools in this county. Creslane is the BEST hands down. You will not be disappointed.

Creslane Elementary is one of the most welcoming learning environments that I have had the pleasure of being. The teachers are wonderful and feel have the students best interest at heart. Classrooms are filled with hands on exploration, and each student's individual needs are recognized and appreciated. Creslane has the best principal, counselor, and resources rooms in the nation!
