Philosophy / Mission

MISSION STATEMENT: 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.
Our mission is to stimulate the students’ curiosity to learn, to guide them to acquire respect for themselves and others and to encourage in them a sense of self-confidence. Our focus is to prepare them to successfully meet the challenges in our diverse society.
VISION STATEMENT: 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.
We strongly believe that each of our students has something valuable within him/herself to offer. Crestview’s vision is to encourage co-operative ventures between all stakeholders, to place the child at the center of his/her learning and to nourish his/her growth and potential. It is through this vision we plan to promote lifelong learning.

 The student is the center of his/her learning. Teachers, parents and adults around him/her nourish his/her physical, intellectual and emotional needs.

Our building is situated on a 200 000 square foot lot fronted by mature maples. Our schoolyard features a soccer field, baseball diamond, basketball courts, playground equipment and a paved area with many schoolyard games painted on the asphalt, including a giant map of Canada.
