Crestview Elementary's close-knit community is built upon a strong tradition of excellence and sense of family at its base. Throughout the year, high school students regularly volunteer in elementary classrooms and interact with students in various cross-curricular activities. Crestview uses its small size as a strength, focusing on the whole child, ensuring each student has the tools needed for an educational path that leads to lifelong learning. Teachers meet weekly in small grade level teams to analyze common assessments and progress monitoring data to plan for daily differentiated instruction ensuring all student needs are met.

Students are challenged with a meaningful and rigorous core curriculum in reading, writing, math, social studies, and science. Additionally, students are exposed to a daily rotation of music, art, physical education, and technology supporting core instruction. Crestview Elementary works to provide a strong technology foundation with a one-to-one laptop initiative in grades 3-5 and shared tablets in grades k-2.

Exposure to life outside of the school walls is evident as parents and community volunteers work individually and with small groups of students. Guest community speakers and field trips expose students to a world they may not have the opportunity to experience. Guidance counselors and teachers interact with students in lessons addressing social interactions, manners, and self-esteem. Crestview staff, parents, and community members educate students on civic responsibility by engaging in service projects which develop a strong work ethic and social foundation that guides students to make a difference in today's society in any career pathway they choose.
