What is CREST School ? 

Citrus Resources for Exceptional Student Transition (CREST) is a special day school for students with disabilities. The student population at CREST ranges from birth to age twenty-two. 

We are a Positive Behavior Support (PBS) school offering smaller class sizes and a higher staff to student ratio. The focus of CREST is to build on daily life skills, work with students on decreasing problematic behaviors, increasing verbal skills and academic skills so they are able to transition back to their home school or to their next goal with the skills that they were taught during their educational journey at CREST.

CREST Mission and Vision

The mission of CREST is to provide an enriching special day school environment in which all students achieve. By addressing our students’ unique educational needs, we facilitate successful integration into the community. Our belief is that all students can achieve regardless of their handicap. Innovative programs, instruction, and curriculum are defining components of CREST. Opportunities for participation and integration into our community are integral components of our school.​​
