Crestwood Elementary website
The mission of Crestwood Elementary School is to provide each child with the attitudes, knowledge, and skills for becoming a lifelong learner through an environment that values curiosity, challenge, cooperation, creative and critical thinking, sensitivity and respect.
Crestwood Elementary School is located on Madison’s northwest side. A school has been located on this site for over 100 years. Crestwood serves students from the immediate neighborhood, Hawk’s Landing, Hawk’s Woods and from the Allied Drive area.
The enrollment for the 2008-2009 school year was expected to be about 380 students. We are planning for 20 classrooms. The SAGE (Student Achievement Guarantee in Education) grant from the State will keep kindergarten and first grade classes at 15 or fewer students and at 15 students or less in grades 2 and 3 for reading, language arts and mathematics. Class size for grades 4 and 5 is 25 to 1.
High Family Satisfaction
Crestwood has a diverse student population and the staff works diligently to include parents in school decisions. Crestwood is committed to developing a positive, caring community within each classroom environment.
Crestwood Association of Parents & Teachers (CAPT) meets the second Tuesday of each month at school. This group works to provide a link between home, school and the district. It supports academic programming by planning special events such as student assemblies. Through fund raising activities they raise money which also is used to support school academics. CAPT also plays a key role in soliciting parent volunteers. To receive information on times, dates, and location of CAPT meetings, call 608-204-1120.
