The doors of Crestwood Junior High opened in September of 1963, and a group of 7th and 8th grade students anxiously entered the halls of their new school. Edward S. Cox had the honor of serving as the first principal of this institution until 1971. Crestwood was unique because it was the first school to be completed by the new City of Chesapeake, but more notably because it was one of the last “separate but equal” schools built in the area. It was integrated in 1966. In 1971, Mr. Arnell Burrus became principal. At this point, Crestwood Junior High became Crestwood Elementary School, serving students in grades 4-6. Mr. Burrus served as principal until 1984. Mr. Meredith Garret became principal for the next three years. In 1987, Mrs. Edna S. Faulk accepted the position as principal. In 1991, the school was renamed Crestwood Intermediate School when the grade levels changed to 3-5. Dr. Woodley J. Koonce III was principal from 1997-2000 and was a member of the first School Improvement Team. Mr. Michael R. Ward was appointed principal in July 2000 and served till June 2011, when Ms. E. Renee Davis took over.
