Why Choose Crest View Elementary

Located in Brooklyn Park, Crest View Elementary serves over 300 students in prekindergarten through fifth grade. We are committed to academic excellence, student achievement, school safety, and an inclusive environment in which every student can learn and grow.

Our small size ensures that every Crest View Cardinal benefits from robust academic, leadership and co-curricular opportunities. It also makes it possible for us to develop strong, personal relationships with each student and family.

Caring support for scholars

Our compassionate staff begins each school year by visiting students and families in their homes to create personal connections that will last through the school year. Each day, our teachers put student learning, social growth, and emotional development first.

Crest View students also benefit from schoolwide intervention and extension programs based on a Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports model. Through the use of this model and other classroom management approaches, we foster a positive and consistent learning environment for all students.
