I was a student at Crossroads and I loved it! The teachers were nice and funny and the classes taught you a lot. My favorite teachers I couldn't choose because they were all wonderful! My only problem is gym which was extremely tiring and hard but it was good for me since I was chubby. I would suggest if you had to go to a junior middle school, go to Crossroads.

Not a good school. Lunch and teachers are the only upside. Don't like the atmosphere it's really bland.

Due to the actions of a few teachers, we found this school to be an unfriendly learning environment for our child. There were a few wonderful teachers that helped our child get through the year however, certain other teachers should be evaluated for their teacher to student ethics. We raised our concerns but we feel there was no resolution. Our student learned a lot about 'difficult' personalities and strategies to deal with bullying. We are happy we 'survived' the school. We wish our experience had been more positive.

My school year hear was really great. The teachers were nice and helpful, and so was the staff. The only problem I had was with the teams. Its separated me from a lot of my friends from last year, which crushed me. But, other than that, this school is pretty great.

This school is horrible. The staff is so irresponsible. Stay away from it. If it's possible, I would rate as 0 star!!!

My Granddaughter has been there this year and she loved it, The teacher's were good to her. The only thing I have a problem with is the backpack on her back is so heavy. Anyone that is graced with going to school here will love it....

Crossroads Middle School is THE WORST!!! I agree with Ms. Bethel. VERY DISORGANIZED, TERRIBLE COMMUNICATION AMONG STAFF AND WITH PARENTS. The teachers(some of them/not all) have a lack of respect for the children; however, they demand respect. Some of he rules are unrealistic! By far the worst school in the district I've ever encountered. We've been in the school district for 6 years....it's the school....not the kids

I'm a former student of CrossRoads and I have to say it- I loved that school! The people there were very friendly, and it was a nice, tranquil transition into real middle school. Everyone is given privliges that they have never head before, and you get to make new friends. Also, the classes there are very interesting and help you learn. There are also many activites to engage in after school- like orchestra and track intramurals.(of which I did both) I love this school- and it will always be one of my fond memories of my school days.

I am a student at Crossroads and I love the school. As Ms. Bethel said, the school has the option for single gender classes which I am in. I love the concept of single gender and I have found that it helps me focas on schoolwork instead of other....distractions I guess you could say. Another thing Ms. Bethel mentioned was that classes seem to be smaller which I must say is not the truth. In fact, the average number of students in my regular classes(math, hla, science, and social studies), the averege number of students is 22. To me, thats a fairly good size. If you are considering this school, you would be wise to follow through with it. Another thing parents, the entire school is gated to protect your kids. Also there is security guard who moniters the school at all times. Overall I love the school.

I would have to counter what Ms. Bethel says about CrossRoads Middle School. This is my second child at this school and 9th year in this school district. I've found nothing but competent, caring and superb teachers and administrators, esp. at CrossRoads. - submitted by Donald Kenney, Ph.D., M.A., B.S, a parent

The only great thing about this school is the single gender education as an option. The classes tend to be smaller. Very disorganized school. Not impressed at all and certainly not with this school district. I would recommend to anyone who attends this district to invest in a private school or home school.
