My daughter has attended the first 7 grades at Cross Roads. It is an awesome school system and we have had all very positive experiences there. The The Elementary and Junior High School Principals are outstanding as are the teachers.

For 10 years our children have attended this school and the whole atmosphere is unfriendly and horrible for all of us. If you are not from here or at least have relatives here then you will never fit in. Very closed minded. TAKS test is #1 priority & all that is taught. They have no advanced teaching/learning classes. Kids get no discipline. The school has no extracurricular act. w/exception limited school sports. Due to location it's a lot of travel to get into extra activities.

This is a wonderful school. The girls athletics is one of the best I have ever seen. Parents are very involved and the teachers are awsome.

We have three children in this school system and we are very satisfied. We looked at all the schools in our county when we decided to build a home. We found Cross Roads ISD to be of the highest quality, in teachers and administration.
