I want to welcome every one of you back! We hope that everyone was safe and enjoyed their summer. My name is Dr. Jayson R. Leach, and it fills me with excitement and honor to be serving Crestwood High School (CHS) as principal. The administrative team and staff are excited to have everyone back, filling our hallways and classrooms with your enthusiasm for learning. The staff at Crestwood High School (CHS) is excited to work with you this upcoming school year to achieve your educational goals. We will continue to keep academics and citizenship at the forefront.

Please maintain regular contact with administrators, counselors, teachers, and staff to make us aware of any needs, major changes your student may be experiencing, or any other ways that we may assist you. We ask that you:

  • Communicate with teachers and administration regularly regarding academics and behavior;
  • Monitor the amount of time your student spends on social media, television, and other media;
  • Update the school regarding major life changes.

Finally, we ask that you sign up for Parent Portal in Guidance, check our website regularly, look for automated calls, and follow our social media pages on Facebook, Linked In, and Twitter for updates. We look forward to another great year at The Castle!

Dr. Jayson Leach, Principal
