Crestwood has many advantages, and students take the initiative to maximize the resources, curriculums, and activities available. The faculty is very well-organized and willing to go the extra mile for its student body. I have not had the pleasure to sit in each teacher’s class, but I have established a relationship with many and I have grown to respect each of them. This year Crestwood experienced change in the administration, and I was not as satisfied as I was with our previous administrative team.

My experience at Crestwood High School wasn't very good, the teachers weren't well educated, or at least didn't have an interest in teaching the students. I'd like to see an improvement in the educators and administration. Also, more student activities that aren't just sport based would most likely bring the students closer together as well.
Crestwood is a great school. I feel most of the teachers do a great job and I am happy with my educational experience. I enjoy that there is not a uniform like dress code. I played sports such as softball and cheerleading, and I really enjoyed these experiences. The school could use some updates, but they are working on that. Overall this was a great district to attend.
