Crestmont School has current limited openings in Kindergarten and several other grades!  Please get in touch - we would love to tell you what makes Crestmont special so that you can decide if this is the school your child has been waiting for.

Looking for a community-based, progressive school environment that uses a hands-on, project-oriented approach? Crestmont School is a unique co-operative K-8 school located in the scenic Richmond/El Cerrito hills. It was founded in 1969 with the goal of encouraging curiosity, critical thinking, and a desire for social justice, while emphasizing community spirit and academic excellence for all children.  Originally an elementary school, Crestmont now also provides an innovative middle school curriculum and supportive social environment for our growing children.

We want Crestmont students to love school and feel enthusiastic and proud of their wonderful and unique sets of skills and talents.  In all subject areas, we encourage spontaneity, investigation, creativity, and fun. We’re committed to nurturing our children’s compassion, sense of community, and love of learning.

Please come tour the school, meet our faculty and staff, and learn about Crestmont School’s innovative curriculum and the unique benefits of our modern co-op structure and close-knit community!  

Upcoming Tours: January 10 & 15 at 9:30am.  Email us if you cannot attend these dates and would like to schedule a tour!
