An independent day school for grades 6-12

Welcome to Crystal!

Your presence at our website suggests you have a question. This, it turns out, is what Crystal does best – we help young people formulate and then answer questions.

We do this by offering the premier education on the Peninsula. We create and deliver the kind of educational experiences that precipitate remarkable personal and intellectual growth in our students. We do this in a small, intimate setting that ensures that every student is known and known well.

Don’t take my word for it. Come and visit​ our middle school in Belmont or our upper school in Hillsborough​. Walk our halls. Meet our students, teachers and parents. In doing so, you’ll discover for yourself the accuracy of our motto, “Community, Scholarship, Unbounded Spirit,” and the countless ways in which we find the best within our students and bring that best self forward.
