Wonderful school. Staff is wonderful. Everyone makes you feel like part of the family. Small class size. Great parent involvement.
My daughter is in kindergartern at Crosscreek. She has learned how to be very independent. Everyone makes you feel like part of the family at Crosscreek. The teachers and principal are wonderful.
We love the "private school feel" of Crosscreek, but it is a public charter school without any tuition. It's a very small school, great teachers and everyone knows everyone. The academics is top-notch and we couldn't be more satisfied!!
My child was lost in public school, floating along by just getting by. Since her enrollment in Crosscreek she has become a dedicated student, mentor to other students, and a participant in her own education. Thank you , teachers at Crosscreek, for your dedication to helping students achieve a desire for learning in an atmosphere conducive to it.
I am not a parent who has sent their child to this school, but I am a student, in fact. I have been going to Crosscreek Charter School since it opened up 9 years ago. Sadly, this is my last year there, and, well, I was hoping that if a parent saw this, they would really see it from the child's point of view. I love Crosscreek. Everything about it. The teachers are great, and friendly, always coming to help you when you raise your hand. I learned very easily there, and already have a plan for college. Crosscreek makes children like me ambitious, ready to learn new things. Also, there aren't bad influences in CCS like there is in other public schools. Lastly, the rooms are very calm, and I find that I can think very clearly.
This is my daughter's 2nd year at CCS. I am very impressed with how fast she learns, but most of all how she can explain what she is doing & understands it. The school holds up to their mission. The teachers are well educated & they love what they do. They go out of their way to help the students grasp what they are taught. The director of the school is the heart of the school. She is a dedicated director & does all she can for her students. I can honestly say that everything that she does is not for her, but for her students. A combination of a dedicated director and outstanding teachers are the excellent groundwork for a well educated future leader. I am honored to be a part of this school & can't wait for my other 3 to attend.
My Child just started Crosscreek this year. She has learned to be very independent and thrives on the active hands-on approach to learning. Before at the traditional school, she had no challenges, here she does. Our children are not only being taught by highly qualified teachers, but an excellent principal who understands the strenghts and need of our children. The principal and teachers love educating our children and they show it everyday. Enrolling my child at CCS was the best decision for my child and our family.
My child has had a great experience at Crosscreek. She has learned to be more independent in her approach to learning. She participates in volleyball and art lessons. EOG scores are high. Teacher quality is high. I am extremely pleased with the school. Crosscreek is Franklin County's best kept secret.
If your child is self motivated, good at both independent and group study, and enjoys doing projects and activities, then this is the school for you. The teachers love their students, are highly qualified, and love working here. They use positive behavior techniques and do their best to teach responsibility to the children.
This is my child's first year at Crosscreek Charter School and it has been agreat year! She transferred from a traditional school where she was not challenged. At Crosscreek Charter School she is challenged and does well acadmically. She thrives on the active hands-on approach to learning. Enrolling her in CCS was the right decision for my child and our family.
My children have attend this school since its inception and I have been extremely pleased. The level of parent involvement and input exceeds all my expectations. The mission of the school allows the children to learn at their own style and rate. The staff works hard to provide the children exciting ways to learn and stay interested. This is not your traditional school and can appear chaotic if you don't understand what you are observing. I would highly recommend this school to any parent that is searching for a school that is hands on and teaches children to think and do for themselves.
What a great idea. This school offers a choice in a community where there are no choices. CCS is not for everyone, as no school is, but it fits perfectly for my child. He has the opportunity to learn the way that fits him best. Instead of traditional lecture / test learning, he gets to spend each day in a hands on environment, which peaks his curiosity every day. Most of my friends kids come home from school and do not talk about what went on that day. My child has become so curious about the topics in school, that he is constantly asking questions and wanting to play the learning games at home. I remember how much I hated school when I was growing up. That is not the case for my child. Also, he has scored better on his standardized tests than I ever did.
There is no control in the class room at all! Children run wild, there is no personal attention for students with learning disabilities! If you want your child to succeed stay away from this school.
This school is a waste!My son went there from the first day it opened to the middle of the 3rd year.There is no dicipline at this school so if you have children that have been dismissed from other schools,this is the place for them..My son was not challenged and he could not think because of all the craziness around! Please observe before you enroll.My son is now a straight A student and is in advanced math...
I have 3 kids in this school. All whom are very different. This school works great for all 3 of them. The fast and slow pace meets their evey need.This is not the traditional school. They can play and learn at the same time. They love it!
This is an excellent school for children who are not cut out for a regular curriculum. This goes for both the slower and more advanced student.
