EXCELLENCE with Distinction was the recent 2010-2011 report card designation awarded to Crestview Local Schools. Crestview enjoys a reputation as a high-performing public school system nestled in the northern part of Richland and Ashland counties. The Crestview tradition of excellence in academics, athletics and the arts is based on collaboration between students, staff, administrators, parents and the community.
Crestview Local has been rated Excellent for Four consecutive years. While Excellence is our goal it is not the end, we can and will always strive to better ourselves.
Crestview Local considers student achievement its top priority. For its core subject areas, the district has adopted the Ohio Department of Education's new Academic Content Standards, which ensures that written curriculum, classroom instruction and assessments of learning all match - an alignment that research suggests makes a powerful impact on student achievement. We use these standards as a foundation to develop our courses of study.
Crestview's collaborative focus on student achievement has paid off in ways that will open doors to a successful future for its graduates. We have implemented a number of initiatives that allows grade level teachers and departmental instructors to evaluate curriculum, examine materials, and improve instruction throughout the district. One initiative that has been implemented and yielding wonderful results is the U-CAN (University College Access Network) program. This program thoroughly exposes every senior to the vast opportunities that are available to them after graduation.
While student achievement is our top priority we also believe that fostering character is an important part of each student's education. It is our responsibility as a school and as educators to instill and promote ideals of citizenship, leadership, kindness, commitment, and integrity.
It takes hard work and dedication on the part of many individuals to serve the needs of nearly 1300 students. In addition to being educated, pupils must be transported, fed and sheltered in a safe and clean environment. Our secretaries, bus drivers, custodians, food service workers, maintenance experts and grounds crews excel in making operations run smoothly every day.
I am honored to lead this dynamic school district in pursuit of excellence.
