Vision / Mission

Crestview Elementary School's vision is to encourage a co-operative venture that fosters the individual growth and potential of the whole child (physical, intellectual and emotional), in a secure, stimulating and inclusive environment. Our mission is to instill in our students a love of learning, strong self-esteem and respect for others, while preparing them for the challenges they may face in our diverse society. The goal of this vision is to provide an atmosphere conducive to learning, where the child looks forward to coming to school and parents are secure, knowing that their child is in a safe environment. The student is the centre of his/her learning.

General Information

Crestview Elementary School was built in 1962 and is part of the Sir Wilfrid Laurier School board. Located in Chomedey, Laval, our school has a student body of approximately 250 students, from kindergarten to Grade 6. The building is situated on a 200 000 square foot lot fronted by mature maples. Crestview has a large playground with various play options and structures, a gymnasium and a library. Crestview also has a great number of technological devices, such as two mobile computer carts and several sets of classroom computers and tablets.

Crestview's student population and diverse needs make it a unique school in our board. The school houses classes adapted for special needs students. Students are invited to learn at Crestview, as this is a place where their academic and emotional needs can be best supported.


Parent Participation

The Crestview Governing Board meets once a month during the school year. These are "open" meetings. Our active Parent Participation Organization (PPO) provides support to our educational project through fundraising and volunteering. Throughout the year, many volunteers also help out during events.


Programs

Crestview offers a 60% English and 40% Francais, Langue seconde program (programme de base) through the broad areas of learning, as prescribed by the Québec Education Program. Crestview presently houses the school board's Early Intervention Centre catering to students with various exceptionalities such as Autism Spectrum Disorders, as well as several low-ratio Special Education Classes catering to a range of learning and emotional exceptionalities. Different from many other school settings, Crestview Elementary also has a full mainstream student population that works hard on acceptance, empathy, inclusion and kindness. Balancing the needs of all the students is something the community at Crestview strives for daily.


Services

Crestview offers school-based daycare services from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. that are aligned with the program of the Ministère de l'Éducation et de l'Enseignement supérieur (MEES). Using a multidisciplinary approach, our teachers work closely with a psychologist, a social worker, a nurse, a speech-language pathologist, an occupational therapist and pedagogical and behavioural consultants.


Events and activities

Students at Crestview participate in activities that celebrate the diversity of our school population. Some of these events include the Terry Fox Run, various fundraisers benefitting social justice causes, PPO-run activities, as well as community events such as the Autism Walk and Family Fun Fest. A wide variety of lunch activities and clubs are offered and several field trips are organized annually per cycle.
