This is a great school of human / child size (does not give this feeling of "education factory"), with a good diverse attendance. The principal knows everyone. The teachers are amazing. The entire staff is very dedicated to what they are doing and they are doing it very well.

I service most of HCPS west end schools and Crestview has the most amazing staff of the bunch!

The principal is great, welcomes each child each morning, and the staff is wonderful. The school is a home away from home during the day. Each child is known by name by the principal and staff, and are treated as individuals, not grouped.

We have enjoyed Crestview School very much. The teachers go the extra mile, clearly they care about the individual students as whole kids and the extra support that ESL kids receive is wonderful. Three cheers for Crestview!

The teachers and staff are wonderful at Crestview Elementary School! They really care about each child and instill not only the SOL requirements but basic life skills that each person should have in life. The school is small enough for students to be known, they are actively involved with the community, the PTA and parents. The school is diverse with students needing extra support in language (ESL) and hearing impaired students (including younger children preparing to go to school). The teachers are wonderful and have incredible talent. We have experienced Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade between my two children.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
