Crestwood Secondary School is a high school located at 1885 Sherbrooke Street West in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. It was established in 1963 and in 2001 enrolled 1075 students in grades 9 through 12. It is a member of the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board.
Students that attend Crestwood reside in the west end of Peterborough, Ontario as well as Cavan, Millbrook, North and South Monaghan Townships, Mount Pleasant, Bailieboro and Fraserville.
The recent trip to Chicago ended up with Crestwood's wind ensemble and jazz band receiving first place in their categories in the Music Festival Competition, while their concert band was in a non-competitive category. The bands will also be traveling to Washington in 2008. Crestwood contains a Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band, Flute Quartet, Percussion Ensemble, and Brass Quartet.
Crestwood also has strong drama and arts programs, who put on plays and art exhibitions throughout the year. In 2006, Crestwood's Drama Department put on a production of the one-act play White Room of My Remembering and entered it in the Sears Drama Festival. Winning an award as an Outstanding Production, best lighting and sound (Dave Trowsdale and Venetia Kelly), Best Stage Manager (Ayla MacPhee)and countless acting awards by most of the cast at the Peterborough festival held at Showplace Peterborough, the play advanced to the Regional round of the Sears Festival, held in Pembroke, Ontario. In winter of '06, they also performed a version of "A Christmas Carol" which was successful, performing to hundreds of elementary school children during matinee performances, and attracting large crowds each night of its 3-performance run.
The school is best known, however, for its Film and Television Production program. Created and run by Ross Davies who is a Prime Minister's Award winner for Excellence in Education, the program has seen students produce a variety of television segments and shows for TVCogeco and Corus Entertainment's CHEX Television for almost a decade. Most recently, the program has expanded its focus to include dramatic pieces including a full-length original feature film.
