Our finest asset at Crest Hill is our students and their families. Parents are an integral part of our school community.

The Parent Teacher Organization meets at 7 p.m. the first Tuesday of each month in the school commons.

A Back-To-School Night is held each September, introducing parents to the school program, routine, policies, philosophy, and procedures.

Individual parent-teacher conferences are held twice a year. Additional conferences may be arranged by parents or by teachers as necessary.

Crest Hill students study math using the Bridges curriculum. 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, supplemented 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 older students have a choice among band, orchestra, or vocal music. All students get a one-hour block of art each week, and students have two 30-minute P.E. sessions each week.

Based on available funding, students may participate in Robotics, Art Exploration, Primary Art, Sign Language, Math Clubs and Extended Day.

Fifth-graders may play basketball and volleyball through the Capser Recreation Center.

Supervision begins at 8:00 a.m. After school supervision ends at 3:45 p.m. Students may participate in clubs or take buses to the Boys and Girls Club, the Casper YMCA, and area daycares.

A gifted and talented enrichment program is available one day a week for the school’s highest performing students.

Special education students are served by a certified teacher, usually in a pull-out model with some classroom inclusion based on individual needs. Crest Hill also has an intermediate Functional Life Skills room.

Students have access to a tutor, who works with at-risk kids; two teachers devoted solely to reading; a certified Central Wyoming Counseling Center counselor; and a social worker who works with special education students.
