Great school. While academics are certainly important, and well attended to, what makes this school stand out is the principal's and staff's ability to understand the huge transition middle school students are enduring, not only acadmecally but as teenagers. They just get it. I really like, and highly ...  Read more

Was very dissappointed to come to this school. Had high expectations based on previous reviews but clearly not the case for us. Found some of the teachers to be unhelpful and with chips on their shoulders. Cafeteria and classroom full of vuglar, offensive and inappropriate language by students. Teachers ...  Read more

A great school! We are approaching the end of our first year at Cresthill and couldn't be happier.

I just completed my student teaching at Cresthill. I worked with the G/T and core students in 8th grade. It is an amazing school with amazing students. Thank you so much for all you have done for me. I love you all!

Im and 8th grader at Cresthill and I love it! When I first came to Cresthill I was a transfer from another school and didn't know a single person. It was the easiest transition I've ever made. Everybody is so nice and teachers make it fun. I'm really going to miss Cresthill

I'm an 8th grader at Cresthill. It is an awesome school.I'm on the G/T (gifted an talented program). The teachers are amazing, they really make you think. The elective teachers are also great, and PE really give you a workout.
