School Notes

Crossroads School provides a foundation for the success of its students. "Teaching Outside of the Box" is a basic premise which supports the unique educational needs of our student body. 

The Crossroads Mission: 
Crossroads School, Inc. prepares students with learning differences (K-12) to integrate into a conventional school or college by facilitating maximum academic and social potential in an emotionally safe and supportive environment.

The Crossroads Philosophy:
  • Each student is unique and each learns in different ways.
  • Creative and flexible teaching strategies are required to accommodate different learning styles.
  • The interfacing of both remedial and compensatory skills is essential for successful learning.
  • Positive self-esteem and confidence are imperative to academic and social success. 
The Crossroads Objective:
  • Prepare students to mainstream into traditional classrooms or to attend college.
  • Enable students to learn at their own rate by applying multi-level, multi-sensory teaching methods.
  • Place emphasis on personal growth and development.
  • Incorporate field trips as an integral part of the educational program.
  • Promote learning through positive reinforcement.
  • Encourage students to reach their highest level of achievement within the framework of their capabilities and talents.
  • Teach students how to become "their own best expert" in advocating for themselves.

The Crossroads Classroom:

  • A low teacher to student ratio of 1:8 is maintained.
  • Students are grouped according to approximate chronological age.
  • Within each age group, students are sub-grouped according to the skills they are learning.
  • Each student has an individualized, academically complete curriculum by subject.
  • Healthy interpersonal relationships are fostered.
