We moved our son from another local school that was having bully problems. He has done great at Crossroads. Principal is really on top of behavior issues. Classes are small and teachers are enthusiastic and spend time with students. Our sons grades have risen from C avg to A and B. I am very happy with this school.

Crossroads Middle School is the best middle school in the meridian school district. I am convinced every school should be this way. My son loves it so much he does not want summer vacation to come. His grades and test scores have improved. The staff is loving and caring, my son is not just a number in an over crowded classroom.

I went to Crossroads for a year and it is the best school in the Meridian Distict. I could never find a better school than Crossroads. It taught me to organize my priorities and help me to see the importance of grades. Every student has their own laptop for educational resources, and that is very helpful toward the learning process. The teachers and staff there are very heartfelt and loving and care a lot about each and every student. I wouldn't trade my time there for anything, I made a lot of friends there that I intend to keep. I love CMS with all my heart and I would give anything to go back.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Idaho used the Idaho Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, math and language usage, and in grades 5, 7 and 10 in science. Students may also take the ISAT in grades 11 or 12 if they were not able to do so in grade 10. The scores from the spring administration are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The grade 10 ISAT is a high school graduation requirement. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering the specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Idaho. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
