About Us

The parent teacher organization (PTO) of Crestridge International Studies and Dual Language School represents a space where parents, teachers, and the school’s leaders and staff come together to work shoulder to shoulder on initiatives that can elevate children’s education.

This school currently enrolls just under 400 children. Each child and each family is unique in their history and background, and each family is part of the Crestridge family. And, each parent and guardian is a welcome contributor and participant of the PTO.

Our goal this year is to foster a participatory community by building a welcoming and inclusive community where members can become more connected to Crestridge in our mutual efforts to provide the best possible experience for every student and staff member.

Please reach out with any questions, comments, suggestions, and more at crestridgepto@gmail.com.
