i really loved the elementary. all the teachers were nice and willing to do whatever it takes to teach the students.

my son likes the Crossville Elementary school, because he has made new friends since transferring there. My issue is the security and safety of the kids. They are allowed to just walk out the door and go where ever. That is not right at all. There should be some kind of protocol for these kids when they get out. There are too many perverts and sicko-s in this world for them to just allow the students to run free. And what if someone is going through a custody battle and one parent isn't allowed to see the child. This is a dangerous situation and needs to be corrected before something happens to one of these children.

I think that everyone does a wonderful job with what they are given to work with. The teachers are there because they want to help kids and if the kids are willing to learn- they will learn alot!!!

This school faculty really works hard to help the Hispanic students. Several teachers have learned some Spanish so they can relate to the students better. These teachers go above and beyond to be a great teacher.

I think that this is a great place for children to learn, grow, and make friends. There are mixed cultures and I think that it helps children to learn about other people's customs and beliefs. The staff are pleasant, teachers are nice, many after school programs, and they even have a great PTA/PTO with something always going on for the kids to get involved in!

My daughter just moved to Crossville elementary this school year. I am very pleased with how she transitioned. Her teacher has been wonderful and the faculty and staff are always helpful. The reading program they have established is a bit different than some of the Dekalb County schools but it works great.

I feel that with the resources they have to work with, Crossville schools do a remarkable job educating the students that want to learn. The few parents that actually volunteer to do things do a great job; there just aren't that many.
