Read what parents are saying about Crestview Elementary School
We had two kids here for two years, 2014-2016. The leadership only cares about test scores, not each child's learning needs. Our advanced child was forced into busy work. The gifted program is garbage. We did have some great teachers. I feel like the teachers do their best in the persmiters they are given. Most of the teachers seem to really care. We were lucky enough to have Dr. Faulk as the principal for a year before he retired. All of the kids LOVED him. He was like a rockstar. The atmosphere of the school seemed drab after he retired.

My kids went to Crestview for one year and ok if you needed a place to drop your kids off for free time. It is a school that teaches only for standardize testing, not for improving your child education level. There was a hand full of good teachers, but that was it. It's not a school that will push your children to be better and they cover a lot of things up when it comes to reporting problems. For what it is worth it is one of the better public schools in the area of Lompoc. It's best to homeschool your child or send them to school in Orcutt. Santa Maria has a couple of good private schools.

this school is one of the best I ever went to. The teachers and principal are amazing. My sister asked Dr.Faulk if we could have a 70s/80s dance and a month later, guess whose school had a dance? Unlike some other schools, they actually listen to their students. Overall, 5 stars!!!

My children spent three years at Crestview and loved each year!!! The Crestview Staff work as a team and help to create a positive learning environment for the children. The principal, Dr. Ken Faulk, is always available and does a fantastic job as a leader and as a principal. The PTA does a phenomenal job of hosting activities that are fun and contributes funds for programs such as Razzle Bam Boom, Zoo to You, Art, and Band. We miss our Crestview Family!!

We absolutely love Crestview! The teachers are wonderful and do a great job working together. My son is in kindergarten and every single kindergarten teacher knows him an welcomes him when they see him. The principal is amazing! He is very involved with the students and is always available to help whoever needs it - a teacher, a students, parents. He isn't just a guy in the office. The PTA is very active, and parents are very involved. Everyone really works as a team here, and we have loved it. It is a wonderful little community that we are happy to be apart of.
