Principal's Message

Welcome to J.C. Crumpton Elementary School, located in the diverse community of Marina, CA. We offer transitional kindergarten through fifth grade and home to 517 students. Crumpton is a  STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, AVID and Math) program. Students are receiving high quality instruction with integrated STEAM components throughout the school day.
 
Crumpton is a multicultural and diverse learning community that prepares each student for academic, social, and personal success by providing a safe, supportive, challenging, and meaningful environment.  Our highly qualified staff provides each student with a quality education aligned to rigorous standards and behavior expectations. We are committed to providing the very best that education has to offer to all students at Crumpton.
 
Community is paramount at Crumpton, and our active PTA supports many school-wide events for our families to involve all our students and families in fun community activities. For example, we have a family-oriented Terrifying Taco fall festival prior to Halloween which is always well attended. We greet new families with a kindergarten BBQ and welcome orientation prior to the start of each new school year and last year we had a Lap-A Thon which proved to be a successful fundraiser for the school. The school has a wonderful family tradition with many of our current students’ parents having attended Crumpton as children. 
 
In addition to our regular education students, we house a Language Enrichment Academic Performance (LEAP) program and a Special Day Class (SDC) program. These programs, overseen by our Special Services Department, supports students of special needs— particularly those who have a communication disorder frequently identified on the autism spectrum.
 
We include all our students in school-wide activities and assemblies. Autism Spectrum Disorder students also participate in our general education program as determined by an Individual Education Plan (IEP).
 
Crumpton has a hard-working PTA which sponsors many activities, including class field trips throughout the year.
At Crumpton Elementary School, our mission is to provide the highest quality education in a secure, positive, and challenging environment for all students fostered by a cooperative effort between school and community. We aim for an atmosphere of cooperation with respect for individual differences and community values.
 
Our vision is to create a challenging learning environment that encourages high expectations for success through the development of appropriate differentiated instruction that allows for individual differences and learning styles. All learners are encouraged to be self-sufficient, responsible, cooperative and caring members of our community.
