Our instructional program encompasses classes in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade and serves approximately 700 terrific kids.

Our teachers work diligently to develop creative lessons which are designed to challenge students and broaden their knowledge in all academic areas. Integrating technology across curriculum areas has been one of the many successful methods that Crenshaw teachers use consistently to reach the wide range of student needs.

Teamwork is the foundation of an exemplary school. Our school flourishes due to the active involvement of our team members: students, parents, community, and staff.

In our efforts to make the school’s program effective, we understand and support the importance of a working partnership between home and school.

Grading Overview

Team Chesterfield families,

As we receive new guidance daily from the state and federal levels, Chesterfield County Public Schools continues to adjust plans for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. Please keep in mind that while school buildings are closed for in-person instruction, learning continues. Our role now is to continue to prepare students for success in the 2020-21 academic year to the best of our ability.

Today’s communication includes information about grading. We apologize in advance for the length of this message, but want to be as clear as possible about our work and expectations related to it.

This guidance has been provided by the Virginia Department of Education: “Whereas the VDOE recognizes that decisions on grades are a local decision, the VDOE does not recommend grading work completed during the closures since schools are closed.”
