Crestridge Magnet is located at 818 Crestridge Road in Omaha. Students are served in kindergarten through sixth grade. The Crestridge Magnet staff has developed a curriculum to reflect many countries representing a variety of cultures, regions and levels of economic development and geographic locations. Thematic, inquiry-based learning provides a window to the world and uses literature to link each culture at every grade level. Many special events, celebrations, songs, games and visuals identify Crestridge as an International/Global Studies Magnet. Language studies in Japanese, German, and Spanish are introduced in kindergarten through second grade. Students in grades three through six choose either German or Spanish to continue with a language as they complete their studies at Crestridge. Crestridge provides a quality education that ensures all students are successful learners and responsible citizens with a global perspective.
