We love Crestwell School. My twins have been at Crestwell since Kindergarten. They have felt welcomed from the first day and had amazing teachers who cared. As a mom of twins, it has been amazing to see how kids have been met where they were and challenged appropriately even catered to their individual interests. I love the opportunities they have to participate in public speaking throughout the year, engage in exciting projects, and the buddy system -where kids get to interact and work with older kids in the school and the leadership skills the older kids are able to practice. My kids love being in basketball and soccer teams every year as well as art club, chess club, run club, science club, etc. Crestwell is a friendly environment where parent engagement is encouraged and as a parent, you always feel heard. I cannot imagine being at any other school.

We have had both our kids enrolled at Crestwell for the past 2 years, and it's been great! The smaller class size is a plus and the staff has been nothing but helpful. The school provides a safe environment for our kids, and they are always happy to go to school!

Crestwell is an amazing private school in Fort Myers with caring teachers and staff. The small class sizes make a huge difference. The children get a lot of exercises and fresh air. They even have a vegetable garden. There are school plays, a whole school musical, and many other events throughout the year. My children wake up every day excited to go and are learning like crazy!

This is our first year at Crestwell, and we couldn't be happier. The school is culturally inclusive and academically challenging. Our 2nd grade teacher Ms. Navarro goes above and beyond for all her students, the class is always participating in exciting hands-on activities. Crestwell has a Spanish class and club, which was important in our decision to send our son to Crestwell. The school creates a well-rounded student by incorporating clubs for stem, chess, music, Spanish, art, sports, robotics, etc.

The students reached out to our children immediately. The parents, teachers and director were very thoughtful. Actually the math was more advanced than our last school, We received help and the girls adjusted. Wish we could move the school closer to our home.

Glad we found Crestwell. Our move was difficult and the school community was very friendly. My son and daughter were accepted and respected. We are impressed with their activities such as Fencing, Chess, STEM team, Math team, Music, Play,Soccer teams, Basket ball and even in the last week of school the whole school was part of learning fun which included Physics.

Wonderful school, we stayed in Florida so our youngest could graduate this year!! Both of our children have attended since kindergarten. Motivating and caring teachers. Dedicated and dynamic teaching Principal that leads by example! The principal really listens and is respected by the students. Middle school is a difficult age, I am glad I had Crestwell 's guiding my child during those difficult growing years. It is a rough world out there and socially sophisticated at a younger age in the larger schools. Crestwell is a very safe environment!! Our oldest Crestwell graduate is now a junior at the Fort Myers IB, doing well and making good choices.

Excellent learning environment...our family could not be any happier at this school. Administration and teachers are top notch. Emphasis on educating the whole child - very academic but balanced well with positive self-esteem enforcement for the children. In addition, children are taught responsibility in making their own choices. We have found the other families to be friendly and welcoming. It is a very safe and nurturing school where the administration is hands-on and knows what is going on with the students. Music, art, and Spanish taught from Pre-K through middle. Bargain for the money we pay to get this kind of peace of mind and a solid education for our children. Highly recommended.
