Message from the Principal

Crestwood! Tucked away in a park-like setting, we are the best kept secret in Chesterfield County! Our three “big ideas” for school improvement reflect our educational philosophy:

  • We teach the whole child~~Academics, Art, Social, Emotional, Environmental, Sustainability, and Giving Back to the Community.
  • We teach a growth mindset~~Smart is something you can get, not something that you are.
  • We use assessment to improve teaching, learning, and leadership~~We don’t test just to test!

Come catch the spirit of Crestwood!
