Georgia Parent Survey

Calling all parents! Your opinion matters. Please take a moment to complete the survey (click on the image below) from the GA Department of Education about our school. This information will help us know where we're doing great, and recognize our areas for improvement. It's only 24 questions and we are aiming for 100% of our parents to participate. Thank you!

Home of the Dolphins and a 2002 Georgia School of Excellence because of their exemplar history of academics, extracurricular programs and community involvement, Crooked River Elementary School (CRES) first opened its doors to students on August 29, 1986.  Named for its proximity to the Crooked River on the northern border of St. Marys, CRES provides a  motivating learning environment for Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade with an average enrollment of 585 students.  Serving students from the Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base and surrounding area, the CRES faculty is composed of approximately 42 certified professionals, 12 paraprofessionals, 3 clerical employees and a registered nurse.

If it is to be, it is up to me. If I believe, I can achieve.
