I moved here as a military family and have been absolutely impressed with this school, the teachers, the PTO, and the students. We have a special needs child and the school did everything they could to help him while he combats cancer. The principal, Ms. Holly, is outstanding as are all the teachers, aids, staff and other assistants. I would select this school district in looking for a home in Carlisle. Thanks Crestview!

Crestview is an excellent school. The staff are very involved with all the children-not just their own assigned students. Mrs. Holly is very involved in the day to day running of the school. They have a lot of family events that are always lots of fun. Crestview has an excellent support staff, who are commited to helping their students succeed.

Crestview Elementary principal leadership and involvement is the best we have observed in three different districts we have lived. Miss Holley knows her students by name and is involved in ALL aspects of the school days from busses arriving, serving lunch, and students departing each day. Teachers are engaged and caring. They are committed to developing all the children to their full potential. We were very impressed with the school's 'Learner to Leader' program which promotes life-long learning to make a positive difference in the world. Discipline and safety standards are enforced positively. School spirit and patriotism sets the standard.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Pennsylvania used the Pennsylvania System of State Assessments (PSSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in math and reading, in grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. The results for reading, writing, science and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The PSSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Pennsylvania. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
