• Crestwood High School "Keeping Academics and Citizenship First and Foremost"

Welcome to Crestwood High School

DrGamble2      Message from our Principal

First, please allow me this opportunity to welcome everyone to Crestwood High School (CHS). The administrative team is anxiously anticipating the beginning of another school year at The Castle, where we embrace the Sumter School District’s (SSD) theme of Shaping Our Future, Together We Can. We anxiously anticipate the upcoming school year to implement continuous improvement efforts that will propel us to local, state, and national recognitions.

For the past two years, CHS has received the following recognitions and accomplishments: 1) two Gates Millennium Scholars, 2) two Harmon Scholars, 3) over $20,000 donated to Relay for Life, 4) $16,380,911 in scholarships, and 5) over 1,000 community service hours performed by JROTC. Other points of pride for last school year, which is not an inclusive list, include the following: 1) choral performance at Carnegie Hall in New York, 2) television and state recognitions for Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS), 3) regional and state recognitions for student-athletes and coaches, 4) several grant recipients, and 5) numerous accomplishments by students and teachers.

Through teamwork, CHS will continue to provide a quality education that enhances and expands beneficial partnerships, technology initiatives, and blended learning opportunities as directed by SSD. My focus remains to ensure that CHS students acquire skills that will ensure career and college readiness. As the instructional leader, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to contact me to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas for continuous school improvement. I look forward to meeting students, parents, and community members.

Perfect Attendance

Crestwood High School celebrated its Perfect Attendance Kick off with “Bo Time” at the Castle.  The event took place Friday, October 15, 2016, in the school’s cafeteria with loads of tailgate fun.  Our local Belk Department Store rendered 20 door prizes, which included both female and male fragrances and bags to top off the event.  We sincerely thank our MTSS Community Collaborators, both Sumter’s Belk Department Store and the Bojangles Restaurant on Hwy 15 for sacrificing their time, efforts, and contributions to support our perfect attendance celebration.
