All the teachers at Crestview are great! The principal on the other hand is not as concerned about ensuring the emotional needs of the children as she is with the business side of running a school. It is very depressing to see such an awful principal leading such great teachers. I can only imagine what the environment would be like at the school with a better leader.
I love this school and the principal! I moved to Lubbock from Plano fours years ago. Most people know the tradition of excellence associated with Plano ISD - top administrators, the best teachers (they pay their teachers well!), and great facilities and technology. I was worried about our move from the metroplex to Lubbock. I am glad my realtor recommended Frenship and specifically Crestview. Crestview's new principal is great - a good leader for the teachers there, has great relationships with the parents, and really cares about the kids!
I love Crestview! I have 3 children here currently and have been with the school since 2005-2006. We love the Principal, the teachers, the support staff, the academics.....it is all great!
I was very happy with this school before they changed principals. The new principal is more concerned with paperwork than she is with the kids. It seems the kids come second. You no longer feel welcome at the school. The academics are great and they have good teachers although many of them are new.
Have been thrilled with Crestview. I have never met such caring and dedicated teachers before!! Thanks!! Ann Marie Meredith
We moved to Lubbock in 2004 from Spain and were very concerned about schools in the US, especially with discipline. Not to worry! Our youngest started kindergarten here and did great, he could read at a first grade level at the end of his K year. Our middle son started 3rd grade, loved it and did well. We wish we could keep our kids here, but the US Navy is moving us summer 2006. Great leadership from Mr Smith and Mrs Berry. The staff is friendly as are the teachers. Very safe environment, plenty of special events, and a strong PTA. The school continues to score highly in the TAKS tests, too. Five stars! Charles Pinkham
I have three children that go to Crestview. I like it alot. The teachers really get involved. They have a higher standard than the other schools the have attened in the past. I think that great eventhough in has taken more work, I feel they are ahead of what their friends in the same grade are. The only thing I do not like is when school lets out its crazy cars everywhere.
