This school is truly amazing , the staff and teachers really care about their students and school. I moved my daughter from another lps school(Woodland Hills) that didn't care about her or really any students. My daughter is an A student and loves going to school major change from her two years at the previous school. She has a great teacher Mrs. Whiteley. Thank you to Crosby Park for making a difference and still having passion and care for the students!!!

Crosby Park is a warm and caring school with an excellent faculty of teachers and a principal who listens to parents and their needs for their children. The school also has great test scores, consistently one of the top performing schools in the district. My kids love Crosby Park and as a parent, I do too!

I have 9yo twin girls at Crosby. Being a military family, moving and new schools are always a very difficult part of the transition, that being said however, the teachers, students, and staff QUICKLY had each and every one of my fears and/or concerns dissipating. We attended open enrollment this past fall and were quickly and completely impressed by the overall devoted cohesion of the staff we experienced. We were greeted with nothing short of THE MOST welcoming, cheerful and helpful group of people we had ever encountered! Now that classes have been well underway and our year is rapidly coming to a close I can proudly and sincerely say Crosby Park has provided us with our finest experience yet in 18 years of military moving and changing schools! MANY KUDOS TO THEM!

Principal lukewarm, secretarial staff & teachers are in cliques. From my experience, favoritism is shown to teachers children. Curricular activities are ample however. A few teachers are caring & dedicated but the principal herself did not step up to the plate when we complained about bullying. Did not contact me when my child was gravely ill. Staff & principal competitive with younger mothers.

My two children have been students at Crosby Park. The teachers, principal and the entire staff work together to make this school a wonderful place for their students. The entire staff works hard to make sure each child is successful and feels welcome!! The activities are great and the community projects promoted through the school help the children know what it means to help those in need. You could not find a better school in Lawton.

My children have gone to Crosby Park over the last eight years. When we first got here it was an awesome school. We loved it! Now it's just okay. It would be great if the principal would take charge of a few of the teachers instead of letting them take charge of her. There has always been a PTA, just active enough to take your $4.00 membership fee. After that, there is nothing. The student/teacher ratio is aweful. I feel that there are quite a few students that would have benefitted so much more with a smaller class size. I hope this school can regain the positive influence it once had.

I have been very impressed with the staff at Crosby Park. The school has a strong sense of community and fosters a strong environment for learning. My child has some behavioral challenges, and I have continually received support from both his teacher and the principal. I feel we have worked as a team to provide him with the best plan of action. There are also a lot of fun family activities at Crosby. I appreciate being a part of this school, and the Crosby Park family.

Crosby Park has alot of activities for the kids, but seems to also have alot of discrimmination according to income level. My child has also had problems with teachers and the principal; they just don't seem to be caring.

My three boys all attend Crosby Park and we all absolutely love it. I have been very happy with the quality of education and all the teachers. There is a very active PTA group who are very accepting of new members. I drive my kids twelve miles everyday just to keep them in Crosby Park.

Crosby Park, in my opinion, used to be one of the best schools in Lawton. It now seems that a couple of the teachers there run the school instead of the principal. Most of the teachers are there because they want to be. It's sad that a couple of them are giving Crosby a bad name, and it's even worse that nothing is being done about it. Thank you to the teachers who care about my children and their well being.
