Crestwood Street Elementary School Reviews
Good, family-oriented, hard-working staff
Crestwood Street Elementary is in an RPV neighborhood, but is part of the LAUSD system. The staff is hard-working; many stay late or work on the weekends. There is a new principal on staff who seems to be approachable, spends a lot of time with the children, and is involved in improving and growing a strong student body and teaching staff. Crestwood is family friendly, however, as with all LAUSD schools, parents are no longer allowed to just walk on to campus. You have to enter the office first and get a visitor's pass. Test scores don't reflect everything, but this school scores in the 840ish range on the API.
I'm a former student from Crestwood. I remember the teachers and the staff treating me & the others with respect & over all being wonderful!!!
