This has got to be the best school I have ever gone to. Not only is the critera they teach, very well but the staff is amazing. To this day several years later (I'm not 21) I can still walk into that school, and the staff that was there when I attended still remember me by name. I dont have to say anything. They are just extremely friendly people and I wish I could send my daughter to this school when she is old enough.

I have one daughter attending Crestline and I'm very happy with the professionalism of the Principal she has made an amazing difference at this school. My daughter is currently in the 3rd grade and we love her new teacher! As a parent we are responsible for our children! Take the time to participate in school activities during the day with your kids.

Crestline is a poor excuse for a school - they had to get rid of two quality teachers and replace them with no one! This increased our class size and the quality of instruction went down!! There are teachers who do not have clear boundries and make the rest of the class miserable and unable to learn. The new principal is top down management and the teachers are affected by it.

The one thing that would help this school be even more fantastic would be parent involvement. There are only a handful of us who are involved and it would be easier on all of us if more parents gave their time and talent. The teachers are all very dedicated and the PTO works hard to bring fun to learning. My second grader has had the most successful year to date and I look forward to his success increasing in the years to come.

So far into the year our experience at crestline has been great. The teachers are excellent and helpful. It seems like they are learning what other children are learning at other schools. My son and nephew love it.

I have two children that experienced Crestline. One had a horrible experience and the other enjoyed the experience. I would say first and foremost that this school, despite the fact that it is not considered a 'high income' area school, is doing it's best to provide a well-rounded education. There are many activities above and beyond the regular 3-R's that students are encouraged to get involved in. Every month there is some sort of parent/student night-time activity and turnout seems to be considerable. There are a lot of names of parent volunteers on the wall so there is parent involvement. There hasn't been a safety issue at all in the four years we've been in the school. That said, there are several teachers who could beef up their discipline in the classroom. Some teachers don't set clear boundaries which is harmful for those trying to learn.

The quality of academic programs is superb. There's great focus on those students who need extra attention in improving reading/comprehension skills. Music and P.E. have equal importance in the learning process. They do music programs, P.E. showcases, and track & field. Art is emphasized in all grades. Level of parent involvement is not as good as I would expect. The teachers are fantastic!

I have a child in kindergarten at Crestline Elementary school. I cannot even begin to tell you how disappointed I am with the lack of communication between the parent and the teacher. What's the point of having email or phone numbers if nobody will even respond. -Frustrated Parent

My experience has not been a good one. I have a kindergarten child who is gifted. This year has been the biggest disappointment I could of imagined. This school does not focus on academic acheivement. In my opinion this school is teaching below grade level and refuse to teach no more than the minimum requirements of the state. Every child in public school should have opportunities to grow. So much for the no child being left behind- what about no child being stagnat ahead! My child is definatley being overlooked. Who ever heard of a kindergarten teacher having no interaction with the parents and not allowing parents to volunteer in the classroom. I feel like this school has taken away parental control (possibly because it is a lower income school and other parents do not feel as compelled to be as active in there childrens education) it is wrong!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
