Crestview Preparatory School

Crestview is a regional school, and attracts students from a number of local communities, Crestview has the essence of a neighborhood school.
It is a neighborhood created by a shared value for a child and family friendly academic environment where respect and responsibility are practiced. Our intimate community is created by both Crestview's size and the engagement of parents and extended family.
The strong culture of parent participation creates friendships among parents as well as children, creating a supportive environment in which to raise children and a shared sense of responsibility for all the children of the school.
When given the opportunity, Crestview families are ready to roll up their sleeves and get to work for the good of the community, and when done working together, they can often be found playing together.
The connection among Crestview children and families continues long after the school day ends, even years after students graduate.

Crestview Prep is an exceptional school. We had three children graduate from the school and they were nurtured, supported and challenged academically. The teachers are amazing, taking the time to get to know every child, and the head of school and administration are knowledgeable, professional, and loved by students, teachers, and parents. The school is a gem, and we *highly* recommend it.

There is no end to the good things I can say about Crestview. I have toured most of the independent schools in the area and have come to the conclusion that none top Crestview. We were looking for a school that did not have a religious affiliation but still delivered a top-notch education and we found it. Since then, I have had two kids complete Crestview (K-6th), one child currently enrolled (1st grade), and one on deck in a year. The teacher/student ratios are fantastic and the kids are smart, creative, and most of all kind. In addition to the normal classes, the 1st-grade curriculum includes daily PE and weekly classes in art, environmental science, library, computer science, music, gardening, mindfulness, design thinking, and language (Spanish and Mandarin)!! The amazing teachers and administration consistently strive to be on the cutting edge of elementary education and child development. The icing on the cake for Crestview is the wonderful community of families. From the 1st day your child steps on campus the school does an excellent job of fostering a true sense of community among the students and their families. If you are looking for an independent school in the San Gabriel Valley make sure to visit Crestview. You will be blown away by the way they deliver a great education and warm community without the pretentiousness you find at so many of the other schools in the area.

My son (now 17) started Crestview as a kinder student, as did my daughter, (now in 6th grade). We have been at Crestview for over 12 years and we absolutely love it! Crestview offers the perfect balance of strong academics and social/emotional learning. The curriculum is outstanding but equally important is the fact that Crestview teaches kids to lead with compassion. Self-confidence, empathy, and kindness are among the many traits that Crestview students acquire. As a parent, I have truly appreciated the fact that the Crestview community (parents, admin, and staff) have always been caring, supportive, and ready to lend a hand. My children and I have established friendships that will last a lifetime. I encourage you to tour Crestview and to meet its head of school, Ms. Baudelia, and her outstanding team. Crestview is a true gem and I am grateful for and will cherish every moment of our time here.

I cannot say enough good things about Crestview. My daughters both entered in Kindergarten and have absolutely LOVED their experience since day 1. There is so much thought put into not just the curriculum, but the entire experience of school! Each child is made to feel important and that they matter. My daughters bounce out of the car going to school every day. We have absolutely loved our time at Crestview and being a part of this warm, diverse, and nurturing community!

Crestview is a special place. Enrolling our kids here has been one of the best decisions our family has made. We have been a part of this amazing community for the past four years, and it has had such a positive impact on who our kids have become. For our kids, the school offers the perfect balance of academic excellence and extracurricular activities (music, debate, mindfulness) that allow them to explore their personal interests. The Head of School, teachers, and staff are wonderful. They genuinely know and care about each and every student, and value their individuality. They also provide incredible support during the application process to middle schools. We couldn't be happier with the education, growth, care, and friendships that Crestview has provided our kids.
