Crestwood Middle School Welcomes our Military FamiliesMilitary logos



We are proud to announce that Crestwood Middle School has received the 2022-2023 Purple Star designation! The Virginia Purple Star Designation is awarded to military-friendly schools that have demonstrated a major commitment to students and families connected to our nation’s military.


Crestwood Middle School welcomes all military families and extends a heartfelt “Thank You” for your service to our country. We are located in close proximity to the largest naval base on the east coast, as well as several other military establishments. This gives us the unique opportunity to service numerous military students and their families. In order to give specialized attention to our military-affiliated students, Crestwood Middle School has a dedicated organization to assist these students. The S.O.A.R. Ambassador organization is a student-led and faculty-advised program whose main goal is to help students transition from one school and community to another. The organization sponsors various activities each school year for these students, which allows them to get acclimated to their new school and community.

Military Families: Preparing Your Move from Crestwood Middle School
Prior to your departure, inform your school counselor of your pending leave date. You may request an unofficial copy of your school records to take with you to your next school, which will be sufficient until the official documents arrive. Your new school can simply request that your official records be sent to them.
