Thank you for convincing me to remove my son from the public school system. My conclusions have been made certain by your inability to see the truth, which is that you would rather convince the parents that something is wrong with their kids than suspend a teacher that bullies their own students.
Not all of the teachers are ineffective, but those that are effective, respected, and considerate of their students, wish they had more freedom to teach their students however way they can in order to truly learn something worthwhile, instead of just teaching them to pass the SOLs.
This school building may be new, but the old problems still exist. The staff are unfriendly, rude, and inconsiderate towards visitors and parents, for any reason.
They have a good number of bullies--not just students, but faculty as well. What is worse, is that their boss is willing to protect them over their students. As such, they have failed to uphold the responsibilities and promise to protect the students walking their halls.
When unruly, disrespectful, unkempt, and neglected children are the norm, where does that leave the kind-hearted, honest, intelligent, and well-behaved children? I can tell you, anywhere but there.
This school is best to be avoided. They built a new school, Which is great, but the old problems still exist-- bullies, troubled children, incompetent teachers, rude office workers, and bureaucratic administrators. All of this outweighs any positive aspects of this school; therefore, not worth your time! Thanks to all of this, my son will no longer be attending this school.
I LOVE crossroads elementary. They make every child feel very special, and will sit and spend time with you one on one, like children need at that tender age. I attended this school, and going through the hardest of times, I was always drawn out to feel on top of every one else. This is the best school of every school I've been through, and has definitely been the one to make me feel, the most important, the most likely to achieve my goals, and help me want to strive for more. Crossroads Elementary is an overly-exceptional school.
My son has went to Crossroads from K- 2nd. He's now going into 3rd. I haven't had any problems w/ the school. My son is an A-B student. All the teachers he's had have been wonderful. Mrs. Beers is doing a wonderful job. As far as "drama" I've not seen any. It's up to us parents to make sure our kids know how to act in school and out. No we can't hold their hand all the time but it's up to us to teach them right from wrong. Can't depend on others for that! Keep up the great work Mrs. Beers!!
Wow im really surprised by what parents have wrote my son has went to scholl from pre-k-4th grade hes about to go into 5th i havent had any problems at all he is learning well... And for mrs.Beers shes not as bad as they r saying at all!!! its not a bad school as for the drama dont make none and there wont be any!!
