Focus on Crestdale Middle School in Matthews (South Charlotte Area!)

Crestdale Middle School Matthews NC – Great Middle School in South Charlotte Area!Crestdale Middle School, matthews nc

I’ve heard many parents jokingly refer to middle school, in general, as the “black hole” of education, but that is certainly not true of Crestdale Middle School, which is located in the Matthews area of South Charlotte NC!  Despite the pre-teen angst, the challenge of “fitting in” in middle school, and students looking to find or create their own identities, Crestdale Middle School does a good job of nurturing its students and preparing them for the rigors of high school.

Crestdale is a School of Distinction in NC!

For the academic year 2010-2011, Crestdale Middle School was named a School of Distinction  in the North Carolina ABC testing program, with 89% of students scoring at or above grade level.  Crestdale’s scores have been improving, and Principal Rhonda Houston has implemented goals and strategies to attain even higher scores.  Built in the late 1990′s, Crestdale Middle has a student population of 980 students, and a teacher/student ratio of 27.  The faculty is distinguished as well, with 17 teachers who have been certified as National Board Certified Teachers, a rigorous advanced curriculum that can take up to 3 years to complete.
