Come by for a visit. We would love an opportunity to show you around out recently renovated school.
Located in a picturesque, wooded valley in the Bayview/Post Road area, Crestwood School provides quality education to students in Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6. At Crestwood, we practise the traditional art of teaching-challenging young minds to learn and structuring experiences that make learning possible. At the same time, we are concerned with the "whole child," striving to balance a child's physical, social and emotional development. Smaller class sizes are maintained, allowing for individual attention and the fostering of effective communication between students and teachers in a friendly, caring, nurturing environment. Crestwood strongly promotes co-operative attitudes and behaviour, and is committed to the preparation of self-confident, self-disciplined individuals who respect the feelings and rights of others. Each teacher is the key. With a well-planned program, a positive rapport with each student, a close communication between home and school, and a sense of commitment and dedication, our goals are met!— Visit school website
The school was founded in 1980 with an eye to providing a strong, focused academic program for the lower grades. In the intervening decades it has very much kept with the times, including an early adoption of e-learning tools and texts, at times in partnership with national publishers. Student success is gauged through mastery of the course material, and the ideal student is one who is able to thrive within a supportive yet academically challenging environment. In 2001 the program was extended into the upper grades with the creation of the Crestwood Preparatory College.
