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.
