The teachers and staff clearly care deeply about the kids and their education. The moral focus is excellent, and they have many wonderful traditions in different grades that make learning especially fun. The special education support is also wonderful, as are opportunities for kids to excel and work beyond average. I can't recommend Cross Creek more highly
While academics are strong at this school, the change within the population of diversity, inclusion, and the help that is being provided to those who may need a little more is profound. The teachers are consistent, stable, and happy from what I can tell as a parent. The request for parent involvement within this school is strong however, that is what makes this school stand out. The more the parents are involved, in various different ways, the better the overall outcomes.
Accelerated and gifted learning opportunities are available as well as special ed teachers for those needing personal assistance. Each child is offered the opportunity to succeed in their own capacity.
The principal, deans, and staff have very low turnover and have effective communications with each other and parents for the children's well being. The guidance which they provide allows each child to make the best choices for success.
Character building is part of the culture and kids are caught doing good and used as positive examples. Monthly meetings to discuss a different moral focus helps kids define how to be a good citizen and neighbor in their community.
