After Crestview

The outstanding secondary school placement of Crestview graduates is a testament to our students’ readiness for the next academic challenge. Recognizing that the critical factor for school success is the right match between child and school, we take very seriously our responsibility for assisting students and their families in the admission process and transition to the next school setting.

Our work together begins in the spring of 5th grade with an informational evening for parents, outlining the process.  For students, the process begins in the fall when they will have school presentations and tours, a test-taking seminar, opportunities to practice essay writing and interviewing as part of the sixth grade curriculum.  Over the sixth grade year, we actively guide and counsel our students and their parents as they navigate the application process and the consideration of the outstanding school options in our community.  Individual parent and student conferences with the Head of School help identify the best opportunities for the right match between the Crestview graduate and the prospective schools.

Crestview graduates routinely have multiple options at the finest independent schools in our area. Over the past two years, the following local independent schools have welcomed our graduates:
Campbell Hall
Chandler School
Clairbourn School
Flintridge Preparatory School
