I would not recommend this school I had to hire and attorney because of what this school did to my child. This school seems nice at first but its not. We had to find out the hard way. Beware.

Crossroads is a great alternative to public schools especially for children who don't learn in the traditional ways or struggle with test-taking. I love the small teacher to student ratio. The staff communicates well with parents and students. Our daughter has benefited from the calmer, more flexible learning environment. She has not been overwhelmed with changing classes or homework overload. She really enjoys school. As parents we appreciate the inclusion of values and morals as well.

my daughter has Autism high functioning. We tried public school till 5th. grade problems on and off more on then off. Then we tried a school just for autistic children worst year ever. This year sent her to Cross Roads Lakeland campus best yr. she has blossomed both socially and academic. She can't wait to go to school. The staff at CrossRoads Lakeland campus are the best.

If you are looking for a great school to enroll your child in, then you have came to the right school. When my child was entering Middle School, I decided that Public School wasn't for my daughter anymore. I enrolled my daughter in Crossroads and not only did her grades improve but her behavior has too. The Teachers, Principle and other staff are very helpful and attend to each child's needs. My daughter will graduate from Crossroads in 5 yrs, because this school is the best school to fit my child's needs.~~~

Crossroads School, was established out of the need to provide programs that are personalized to assist students with specific learning needs. We are a faith based school, and are committed to help students develop who they are in God. At Crossroads School, you will notice smaller classes with low student-teacher ratios, personalized attention, no daily assigned homework, no mid-term or final exams and no FCATs. We celebrate the different learning styles of each student, and figure out which program best fits your child!!

I have so much to be thankful for in my life. God has blessed me in many ways including answering my prayers by putting Crossroads School in my son's life. He was attending public school before we found Crossroads and he was just being passed from grade to grade without getting the education he deserved. He needed one on one help and at Crossroads he gets that and much more. It was important to me to find a Christ filled environment for him as well and Crossroads is just that. I couldn't ask for a better line of communication between the teachers, administration and myself. They keep me informed as to what's going on and what's planned for the future. Crossroads is a great school and I can't thank them enough for the difference they have made in our lives.

Crossroads School is an excellent alternative for children with unique learning styles who struggle to succeed in a traditional public school setting. The staff work very hard to foster a love of learning and are enthusiastic about the students' education, as well as fulfilling their emotional and spiritual needs. They understand all children are different...not just in the way they learn...but each personality is unique and the staff are flexible and take good care in managing challenges the children face. The small class sizes allow the teachers to give more focus to each child and provide an individualized curriculum based on how they learn. My 10 year old son now enjoys going to school and his self confidence has improved. Academically, he is making progress. I highly recommend Crossroads to any parent who is in search of a school for their child with a family oriented and well rounded environment.

Crossroads school has been a Godsend to my son and our family. The principal and teachers have knowledge and understanding to the children that have problems in public schools. My son looks forward to going to school every day and even on the weekends he will ask to go to school. He has his self esteem back and the confidence back that was lost. He takes pride in his report cards now because he gets all A's!

This school has truly made a remarkable come back from last year! The new director is a wonderful lady with a big heart for all of the students who walk through the door. The teacher's are all very intune with the children's needs and they all prove their worth by each and every child who walks through the doors smiling. These children are not just excited about school, they seem to truly want to be there! Congratulations to the entire team at Crossroads! They have done an AMAZING job!

Crossroads is such a great school! I walk my son in every day and he just smiles. The principal knows every child by name and they all love her! This is a great place to put your child if they have learning difficulties or problems. The staff really understands how to help.

Crossroads has changed everything for my daughter. The teacher knows what she needs and is able to give it to her. She was failing in public school. Now she feels confident! Thank you, Crossroads

There is a new director this year, and she is fantastic! My child's teacher is trained in ABA, and even the assistant is working on a Master's degree. The school has really improved! The environment is warm and the kids are really learning already, and it's only the first week!!

The environment was not controlled. Out of date and no school books were supplied. Poor standard of graduating to next grade.

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.
