I graduated and was able to receive my high school deploma thanks to Crossroads school in 98'. The staff was knowledgeable and knew how to deal with a child in distress. Now as an adult, I realize how much patience the staff must of had to deal with children with learning disabilities, and emotionally disturbed kids. Some of these students were children from the broken system, placed in group homes, kids on medication, and kids with mental illness. The teachers and staff that love to educate children and is not affraid to deal with kids not wanted by LAUSD because of their behavior and misconduct are wonderful human beings.
