Principal Welcome

Welcome to Crestview Elementary - Home of the Cougars!

Our school serves the diverse communities of Merriam, Overland Park, and Mission. Crestview is honored to inspire our amazing student population to be active thinkers, learners, and achievers while supporting their academic, social, and emotional needs.

As principal of Crestview, I am proud to serve this great community.  We are fortunate to have strong community support.  There are many ways for parents and guardians to get involved through PTA and our Community Partners. We believe in academic excellence for all children and achieve this by teaching a rigorous curriculum with clearly defined learning expectations for all students.   
Our goal is for your child to develop a love of learning, every day, and to come to school in a safe and welcoming environment. We want every student to be a positive representative of themselves, their families, their school, and their community.
