Message From the Principal
Mrs. Amy Jones - Principal
Hello and welcome to Crest Middle School, home of the dragons. We have a long tradition of academic and athletic successes here. Established in 1976, Crest Middle is home to over 1,000 students in grades sixth through eighth. Our students are the best in Cleveland County! They win athletic championships, achieve wonderful academic growth, and commit to various service projects that benefit the community. Our students are successful in all arenas.
Our staff is also highly qualified and cares for students. We are always searching for ways to improve student learning. Teachers meet at least once per week in their content areas to discuss the curriculum, teaching strategies, and common assessments. We strive to pinpoint areas of weaknesses for each student and implement research-based strategies that will help them be more successful.
We also work to help our students understand what it takes to be a good citizen. Our School Improvement Team developed a school-wide discipline plan that has at its core a reward system. We want every child to succeed so we are putting forth the time and effort to make sure that happens. Our mission at Crest Middle is to provide for every student a positive school climate to achieve academic and social success. Teachers and administrators are committed to this mission.
We need parents and the community to be partners with us to make sure all students succeed. There are opportunities for adults to volunteer as tutors, mentors and testing proctors. Please call the school if you feel you can help in any way. Thank you for your partnership!
