Welcome to Crestmont School!
Crestmont School is the Bay Area’s only cooperative K-5 elementary school. Located in the scenic hills of Richmond, California, near the El Cerrito border, it was founded in 1969 with the goal of creating an environment that encourages curiosity, critical thinking, community spirit and academic excellence for children of all backgrounds.
The essence of Crestmont is expressed in our children’s enthusiasm for learning, curiosity about life, and kindness for others.
“My son graduated from Crestmont last year after having spent his entire elementary years at the school. He came out more creative and confident as he went into middle school and his experience at Crestmont has given him life coping strategies that he will carry with him into the future. As he undertakes the task of middle school, I see the influences of the creative task force of teachers alive in his daily life. It is amazing to see.”
