Welcome to Crestwood Elementary! Our school is one of eight “neighborhood” elementary schools in Rockford. We have approximately 400 students who spend their days with twenty-four professional teaching staff members and seven paraprofessionals that serve Crestwood Elementary. Special Services personnel include a school psychologist, school social worker, gifted/talented pull-out teacher, speech and language therapist, occupational and physical therapists, school nurse, resource classroom teachers, media specialist, and a reading specialist.
When visiting our school, you can ask any student what makes Crestwood so special and they most likely will answer “Crestwood is a great place to be… because of me”. We focus on how the things we say and things we do impact our learning and the learning of others. We focus on our monthly values through community lessons. These lessons help make our actions SAFE, RESPECTFUL, and RESPONSIBLE.
All Rockford schools are Blue Ribbon Schools. We strive for excellence in our education. I hope you find this website helpful in learning more about the educational opportunities at Crestwood.
