Crossroads Elementary School5

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.
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.
