Welcome from Principal Dr. Jansen

​​​​​PrincipalJansen (2).pngW​​elcome to Crestview Middle Sc​hool!

At Crestview Middle School, we encourage all students to embrace the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens.  By being proactive, beginning with the end in mind, putting first things first, thinking win-win, seeking first to understand then to be understood, synergizing and sharpening the saw, this is sure to be a terrific year.  The entire Crestview community will work hard to teach and follow these effective habits throughout the year as well so we can all work together to enjoy a wonderful experience here at Crestview.

We live our school vision of: Serving, Learning and Leading each day.  It is our expectation that our students will serve their school and their community and students will have the opport​​unity to partici​pate in a variety of service projects.  All of Crestview is expected to learn and we hold our students to high expectations. Students should expect rigorous work in all of their classes. ​Students will also be able to learn in many of our after school activities as well.  Finally, all students are expected to step up and exhibit leadership skills. Leadership can be highlighted in a classroom or school assembly and in the way students conduct themselves on a daily basis. 

Crestview is a school rich in traditions, such as the Amphora ceremonies.  Traditi​ons at CMS have been successful based on the commitment of our students, faculty, parents and community.  The Crestview staff encourages students to live up to the Trojan Spirit as exemplified by Hector, the mightiest warrior in the Trojan army.  Not only was Hector a valiant warrior, he was also an ideal gentleman who cared deeply about his homeland, family and troops.  During this school year, display fierce and valiant work in your classes and care deeply about your school, your family and fellow Crestview students.

The staff of Crestview Middle School wishes you a meaningful and pleasant school year.  Should any questions or problems arise during the school year, please do not hesitate to discuss them with a member of the Crestview staff.  Through communication, we can work together to make good things happen.
