Don't be fooled by the varied demographic makeup of this school or the lower than average test scores (oftentimes a language barrier issue). This school has the best staff, teachers, and principal. My son has been attending Crestwood the past three years and we think it's great - a real gem of a school. We had the option of going the private school route or to attend a different Fairfax elementary school but opted to stay with Crestwood. As a parent, I am pleased.

We absolutely love this school! Wonderful and caring staff/teachers. Before our child started kindergarten here, we were a little concerned because of the low test scores. But there’s plenty to consider when accounting for your child's academic performance. The school should not always deserves the blame.

We love our community school and volunteer as much as possible. We are lucky to have the 2013 Fairfax County Public Schools teacher of the year, Melissa Porfirio, and are proud of all our teachers and staff.

Crestwood Elementary is a hidden gem. Great things are continuing to happen at this neighborhood school. The staff are top notch and truly go over and beyond the call of duty on a daily basis. We are proud to have the 2013 Fairfax County Teacher of the Year on staff. The teachers, staff and administration know each and every child's name and make the school a welcoming place to learn and grow. Crestwood offers a clean, safe and caring environment for the students. Community volunteers and special programming make this school special. I am the parent of a rising 6th grader and have been pleased with the education my son has received at Crestwood. The diversity and international flair of the student body in many ways enhances the educational experience by exposing students to other cultures. Crestwood hosts a yearly International Night which is well attended and celebrates our cultural pride.

Everyone at the school seems to genuinely care about the students as well as teaching. We are lucky enough to have the 2013 Teacher of the Year for Fairfax County teaching here as well. It is great to be in a school where within the first week, the Principal knows the name of every child that walks through the front door.

Crestwood is truly a neighborhood school. We have only one bus because almost all the children are within walking distance. There is support for students who need it and all levels of challenge for those who require that as well. The school is known throughout FCPS for it's warm and friendly environment for children, families and staff. It's a great place to be!

My daughter attended this school for three years 2nd - 5th grades. I have watched the atmosphere change with the new staff. The teachers became more accommodating to the students academic levels. My daughter holds good grades and has made a group of friends who enjoy reading together. I suggest that parents volunteer/ communicate as much as possible (If you can) to keep the students and staff motivated on this upward path, plus it always helps to work as a community group. Overall a good experience more so during this past year.
