    Crafton school 1880  

          Crafton Elementary school was established in 1888 and is one of the oldest schools in Redlands Unified School District. The oldest building on campus today is our library, which was dedicated in 1929. The rest of the buildings were constructed in the 50’s and modernized approximately 15 years ago. Crafton has a proud reputation for educating generations of students. Many of our students’ parents and grandparents attended Crafton. Some of our staff members are even past students and many of their own children have attended school here. We have a strong PTA and volunteer support system to complement our dedicated staff. Crafton’s student achievement rates exceed state and district averages. We have one of the largest elementary populations in Redlands and we serve nearly 700 students from diverse backgrounds and ethnicities.  


  • I am the principal of Crafton Elementary School, and it is my honor and privilege to be here.  I am humbled to work with such amazing teachers and parents of our future generations. I am committed to helping each student achieve their own goals and to develop into people of character. With the staff and our strong parent support team, we have been able to bring diverse populations together into a tight-knit community of learners. While the start of the school year continues to look a little different, I know Crafton is up for the task! I am so proud of the way the teachers, staff and families have adapted. I am confident we will have an amazing experience together as we learn new ways to gain knowledge and collaborate. 

     Thank you to our amazing community and staff for the support and encouragement you give our students daily. Together we can make a difference in their lives.
