Welcome to Crestwood High School



  Principal Dr. Shirley Gamble


Sumter School District is committed to our emphasis on academic achievement. To better serve our students, the high schools will start one hour later each Friday beginning January 26 until June 1 to allow time for teacher collaboration, professional learning, and instructional planning. Students are to report to school by 9:45 a.m.

Elementary and middle school principals identified February 14 and March 28 as early release days for professional learning and collaboration. Elementary schools will dismiss at 11:30 a.m., and middle schools will dismiss at 12:30 p.m.

In the new year we will joust ahead and make 2018 the most productive ever. In order to achieve your teen’s full potential, we encourage you to take an active part in his/her education. Assist your teen academically, take advantage of tutoring, and contact your teen’s teachers. We highly recommend that you sign up for Parent Portal in guidance if you have not previously done so. Parent Portal allows you to see your teen’s grades in all classes as well as your teen’s attendance. Students were given their password for Student Portal in order to access their grades.

Student handbooks, which include school and district expectations, were distributed on the first day of school.  Parents are respectfully requested to review the handbooks with their students.

Drop-off and pick-up procedures:  Parents who drive their children to school should arrive in the staff/visitor parking lot no later than 8:35 a.m.; the pick-up time is no later than 4:15 p.m.

Students who drive must arrive at the designated parking lot no later than 8:30 a.m. Student drivers must complete the school driver safety course, the ALIVE AT 25 training, and complete the application prior to driving to school.  Permits will be issued on a first come/first served basis so student drivers must obtain the permit as soon as possible to avoid being denied permission to drive to school.  Parking permits must be obtained in person; mail-in registration does not include parking permits.


Wednesday, February 21, ALL students in attendance will receive an interim showing their grade in each class. Ask for your teen’s interim and assist them in doing well in their classes. You can play a vital role in your teen’s success. Tutoring is offered in all subject areas.
