Crestview Preparatory School is a school that balances a true respect for childhood and a love of learning that extends beyond the classroom. Their students eagerly take on new challenges, and seek opportunities to make connections between what they are learning in the classroom and the world in which they live. Crestview Preparatory School offers a wide range of specialists programs taught by an experience team.
At Crestview, students’ natural curiosity about scientific phenomena is fostered through a hands-on, experiment-focused approach. The science program is designed to build on prior knowledge as students investigate core ideas in science in an increasingly complex manner. The goal is to help our students know and use scientific explanations of the natural world and the designed world; to understand the nature and development of scientific knowledge and technological capabilities; and to participate productively in scientific and engineering practices.
A child’s health and general physical well-being is as much an asset as the ability to think or create. The general goal of the physical education program is to help the children develop and maintain a healthy, vibrant, and active lifestyle into, and throughout, adulthood. Crestview offers a daily, structured, and age-appropriate physical education program to all students. Two full-time specialists work with students for two-week units focused on fitness and sports fundamentals in football, basketball, soccer, and golf, in addition to other sports.
Spanish classes are taught entirely in Spanish to immerse students in the language and help them develop both the skills and comfort to listen and speak in Spanish. Students work to build a strong vocabulary as well as proficiency with the grammatical structure of the language. Children are encouraged to use vocabulary they have learned in the correct context in short oral presentations.
Crestview Preparatory School is located at 140 Foothill Boulevard in La Canada. Call them on (818) 952-0925 or see more information on www.crestviewprep.org.
