A vision of inclusion and excellence. Nurturing and caring for the youngest kids and challenging for the big kids. They talk a lot about their feelings and share all their thoughts with the teachers in class. A bit touchy-feely but they children adore the whole scene. Nice swimming, athletics department is quite strong but not overly competitive.

Crossroads really has a very diverse student body and they truly believe in this. I do and am a Parent on Tuition reduction. My child started at Crossroads in Kindergarten and I can say that the Teachers are amazing, however, I can say that Parents are not as inviting to my child to play dates as the other kids. They invited my daughter once and that was it and I know it is not because of her behavior. I really think some of the Parents are very clicky and they choose and nurture their kids relationships based on who their parents are. My Daughter has come home plenty of times upset because very little friends call her for play dates. I keep her focused in activities and with other friends. I just don't expect her to grow in relationships with most of the kids there.

My child recently graduated from the elementary school at X-roads. She is now attending Crossroads middle school. We loved the elementary school experience. It has really prepared her for the future.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
