My child has been at the Crenshaw Academy for years and it has been a really positive experience for our whole family. We feel it's the perfect place for a gifted child to get one-on-one attention and for them to be floated to higher grade levels in different subjects so they stay challenged and engaged with the curriculum. We love the location with all the old oak trees and natural surroundings and we love how involved the parents are in their kid's educations. The school does a lot of field trips each year too and I love that it allows my child to have all these really interesting educational experiences. This was a great choice for us.

My son has been at The Crenshaw School for 5 years. He will be graduating this year and we couldn't have asked for a better school with the most awesome administrators , teachers and office personnel. Knowing that your child will be taken care of, respected, loved and taught to the highest standards, is, in itself, what all parents want when searching for a school. The Crenshaw School is not a big school but has a large personality when it comes to the personnel at the school. The teachers truly strive to understand each students individual needs and also establishes relationships with each student so that the student knows that wherever they struggle their teachers and school personnel will intervene to help. Family involvement and support, along with the student's desire to succeed will lead to additional success for the student as it has for our son and his future. We love the physical school itself, because it is clean, lots of space, great outdoor space for outdoor activities, such as PE, outdoor exploration for the science class and other areas for weekly clubs such as dance, theater, study hall, science clubs, etc. The Crenshaw School has what my son and our family desired in a school. We can just say for us it has been the perfect fit and the perfect private school. Thank you to The Crenshaw School...we are going to miss you, but will always remember you and what you have done for our son. It is something that we will always be grateful for.

The quality of an education is not based on the location or the look and style of a brick and mortar building but the proven academic track record and results. The Stanford Achievement Test (SAT) scores for Crenshaw students speak for themselves. It is used to measure academic knowledge and conducted methodically on an annual basis by The Crenshaw School to ensure that students are provided a quality education and are reaching their full academic potential. As the saying goes, "the proof is in the pudding." Simply inquire as to the school's overall standardized scores - that has the greatest standing and substance. The proof is our eldest daughter's SAT scores in applying to some of the top universities in the country. The Crenshaw School has exceeded our academic expectations. Simply look at some the universities that graduates from Crenshaw have or are attending. There is no other school that is up to the challenge for our family in our high expectations.
