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.
