It has been extremely annoying with the new rules imposed on dropping off the kids by closing the door ways and parking spots. Atleast half or more than half of the parking lot is used by school staff leaving very less spots for parents in the mornings. After Mr. Duckworth took over, he closed lots of parking spots. While they claim it is part of safety measures they have taken by not letting us enter through the doors they used to let us go through - I don't see them achieving anything by letting us through main doors only - they don't even check your ID. I have seen lots of parents entering with out signing in even through main door - so what is being achieved here? I have talked to at least 20 different parents and we all feel that the school should go back to how it was. My parents who are senior citizens had to drop our kids off one day and the disabled parking spots are blocked by pedestrian crossing making it miserable. I cannot imagine how many more are suffering with these new rules posed. Mr. Duckworth and Mr. Fay, if you ever get to see this - please make our lives easier. One day, we all hope you go back to how it was when we all felt much better than how we feel today!
Crossroads Elementary is an awesome school. When you walk in to the office, the staff knows who you are and go above and beyond to help you. The PTO is very active. The new principal is doing a great job and he remembered my son's name after meet the teacher night (which my son thought was pretty cool). Teachers are wonderful. Great school!
You cannot go wrong at this school. All grades have excellent teachers, but schools are more than that. Administrative personnel is just outstanding, Counselors, and all parents so deeply involved with PTA, caring for the kids. Just step by and talk to anybody there, it's all you need to verify
This is one of 3 elementary schools my 2 girls have attended. Without a doubt, the best. From the top down, kids are respected. Mr. B, along with many teachers, come to almost all school events, not matter how small. They all seem to know all the kids by name, and most teachers know who the parents are. The center of the community kind of school Test scores are important, the the school environment is equally important, and there is a lot of love here. Sad to see Mr B. leaving after this school year.
The student to teacher ratio reported here is completely inaccurate. Class size at Crossroads starts with 20 to 21 kids in K and goes up to 27 kids per class in 4th and 5th grade. Class size is out of control and at the maximum for Missouri standards.
This is my son 2nd year and we just love this school. Everyone there is great. Thank you.
My son has been attending school at Crossroads for three years and we love it! My middle child will be starting fall of 2010 and we are excited! Principals, teachers and parents are great!
Crossroads is a fabulous school! The principal and assistant principal are terrific! They are both very involved with the kids. This is how an elementary school should be run. We loved Crossroads. My daughter is now at Frontier Middle school.
We have been at Crossroads from day one (6 years). The focus from that day has been education, 'doing the right thing' and respect. The kids are getting a good education but are also growing up as strong individuals. Character is emphasized. Parent involvement is encouraged and Crossroads gets the parents to help where needed. Often always the same parents. Fundraising is (as with most schools) overwhelming, too many requests for money. At times there is too much going on at Crossroads, but this is better then not enough. A family orientated school. As with any school there are problems, but there is an open door policy with the adminstration who try to do the right thing for the kids.
Both my girls attend this school and we love it. The teachers are beyond wonderful and take the time to make sure your child understands and doesn't get lost in the shuffle.
This school is outstanding! My son came from NORTH COUNTY and began kindergarten and his progress has been nothing bout outstanding! The principal, Mr B is just great. It is amazing when you see the principal at basic meetings at 7pm! THAT shows dedication and a great principal. Teachers are amazing as well! Very personable even though there are a lot of children there. I am so impressed with this school that the only way we'd move is to continue being at Crossroads! Very happy parent and student!
I had a daughter who spent her last 2 years of elementary school here, she is now at Frontier Middle and I have to say that I as a parent personally miss Crossroads. The staff knew us by name and my daughter was treated great. I would highly recommend this school district to anyone who is relocating. Everyone there makes you feel like you are a part of their family.
Our family loves Crossroads. The principal and staff really are involved and make this one of the best schools in the area. We feel so fortunate that our daughter goes to this school. Just walking through the halls you get a feeling of excitement about learning. We can't say enough about Crossroads. It is a great school.
Crossroads is exceptional. The principal is truly outstanding and very responsive to the needs and concerns of both the parents and the students. He also expects a lot from his staff. Our son has excelled and continues to do very well. We feel that he will be ready for middle school next year. I wish that we could take the principal with us.
I would recommend this school to anyone that might be moving to this area. My child started here in kindergarten and is excelling at a fast rate. The teachers and principal are all so involved and do so much for the students, beyond just text work. I feel that the community helps along with the school to provide the best for the students. Besides it being so new, they offer many things for parents to be involved in along with the child. They have computers in the classrooms as well as a lab. Music, Art, P.E., library are included in their weekly curriculum. I couldn't ask for a better place.
