Crestview High School is a public high school just west of Ashland, Ohio. It is the only high school in the Crestview Local School District. The high school enrolled 416 students as of the 2006-2007 academic year.[2]

Crestview Local School District was created as the result of a merging of Union School (Epworth, OH) and Savannah School (Savannah, OH) in 1962.[3] There is no local town of Crestview and the school serves a largely rural population of students from both Ashland and Richland Counties.

Crestview's school mascot is the cougar. Their official colors are red and white, though black is commonly worn on uniforms. Red and black had been the official colors of Union High School, while green and white had been the official colors of the Savannah Sailors.


Students at Crestview High School can participate in a wide variety of activities including sports such as: baseball, basketball, cheerleading, football, golf, soccer, wrestling, track and cross country running. School clubs include: Spanish Club, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Academic Challenge, Odyssey of the Mind, and the Red Glasses among others.

The Cougars are members of the Firelands Conference, and in the Fall of 2014 became affiliates of the Mid-Buckeye Conference for Girls Soccer.[4] They have one state championship which was accomplished by the golf team consisting of Joshua Brooks, Ben Olewiler, Bryce Lutz, Joe Frazier and Michael Staniford (Fall 2012).
