All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

If you look closely at Texas STAAR 2012-2013 School Year Math and Reading Statistics for Crosby, the 3rd grade results (first year of STAAR testing) are somewhat better than the state average. However, for each grade year (4th-6th) thereafter, the 4th grade results roughly match the statewide average; likewise for the 5th grade reading and science results that even dip substantially below statewide averages. All the 6th grade results dip below the statewide average. These statistics reveal that the leadership at Crosby (principal) needs to reevaluate her 4th -6th grade teaching staff s abilities and take the necessary corrective action.

Excellent school with caring teachers. They have all worked to create a learning environment where my child can excel. My daughter has been in MTA since first grade. Mrs. Rush has helped her be a confident reader. My daughter has achieved commended several times. I am very pleased with this school!

I love Crosby Elementary! My daughter had a minor medical condition that caused her to be homebound for a month. Crosby's counselor, Ms. Tilton, and 4th grade teachers, Ms. Quintana, Ms. Lemmons, and Ms. Cooper were all so wonderful and supportive. I am so grateful this team was (& is) on our side. From the bottom of my heart (and my daugher's) - Thank you Crosby Elementary!

I have had four of my children attend Crosby since the day the school opened and the faculty and staff have been amazing. There isn't anything that they wouldn't do to help a child or parent.

I have a 6th grader and a Kindergartner that attends Crosby. We have only lived here in Forney for about two months and have seen so much improvement in our kids and to hear them talk about their day at school lets us know that we made the right choice for them. My youngest has come home and told us that he loves his teacher so much that he wishes there was school on the weekend. My oldest has come home and told us that her teachers are always there when she needs them. If she thinks that she doesn't know how to do something all she has to do is ask and they help her right away. That was something she did not have last year. Crosby's students and staff really do sparkle. I would recommend this school to everyone that wants to better their child education.

Crosby Elementary has surpassed all of my expectations! It is, by far, the best elementary school in Forney ISD. The teachers are dedicated, supportive and try at all costs to reach the individual needs of the students in their classrooms. The principal, Kathy Green, is innovative, committed, and has high expectations for her staff as well as her students; this is evident in the positive school climate. The leadership and dedication by the staff at Crosby is a model for any school in Texas to follow. Crosby Elementary...where students & staff sparkle!
