“Crest Hill is a community of students, staff, and parents dedication to providing experiences which nurture a responsibility for lifelong learning. Together we will develop the skills, knowledge, and attitudes that will challenge all to think, dream, and achieve in a complex and changing society.”
Crest Hill Elementary, home of the Dragons, is located at the base of Casper Mountain and serves students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Our philosophical focus is on the development of the whole child. We are dedicated to making sure all children are safe, healthy, challenged, supported, and engaged in school. We also believe that families are a very important part of the Crest Hill community. We are proud of our strong parental partnerships.
Crest Hill students study and practice math concepts using the Common Core Standards. In language arts, students learn to read using small-guided reading groups and books tailored to their individual levels. Writing is a key focus for the school, with students using the Step Up to Writing curriculum, enhanced by an in-school writing center. Science is taught using an inquiry-based model that encourages children to ask questions and seek out answers through experimentation. Students in kindergarten through fourth grade take general music classes, and fifth grade students have a choice of band, orchestra, or vocal music. All students have a one-hour block of art each week, as well as two 30-minute PE sessions each week.
Clubs and Activities include: Robotics, Junior Robotics, Student Council, Dragon Benders Yoga, Art Club, Sign Language, and The Green Team. Team sports are coordinated through the Casper Recreation Center. Activities may vary from year to year based on available funding and/or interest.
