Crossroads Park Elementary School 5

my son has been going here for 4 years. We LOVE this school. He had an IEP from an Illinois school when we moved here, he was in second grade. He tested out at preK level for Iowa schools (Illinois school he tested at grade level but towards the bottom). He got so much help from the staff at this school, it still amazes me. He is now in 5th grade and tested out on his assessment tests at grade level or higher. I credit his love of learning on his teachers. Amazing school, amazing staff! Thank you Crossroads park for all you have done for us!

School makes your kids wait for you out in the pouring rain and if for some reason your kid doesnt make it to school you wont here about it until a few hours after school has started definately a school that does not have kids safety as a number one priority. And on a side note this has all taken place within the first month of school starting. Going to find a better school that has kids well being and safety in mind instead of how diverse they are

Both of my children went through XRDS. It was a great experience for them and us as parents. This is a 3 section per grade school making it one of the smaller schools in the district, and has just undergone a complete remodel in 2010-2011. The PTA is very active and has a great working relationship with the staff, especially the principal. The teachers are very assessable and truly care about the success of their students. Having K-6th grade affords the older students to take some real leadership positions. I cried on my son's last day at Crossroads Park.

Great school with lots of parent involvement in PTA and other extracurricular groups. Teachers are very helpful and knowledgeable. Good, well thought out activities designed towards teaching children in all their subjects to make tough things more interesting. An all-around excellent school!
