Welcome to Crossroads Elementary! We are committed to growing leaders through the 7 Habits and the Leader in Me fundamentals. Our school wide expectations align with the 7 Habits to promote an atmosphere of leadership, respect, and responsibility to ourselves and others. Crossroads is a Title I school currently serving 579 students in kindergarten through sixth grade. The students are currently served by 42 certified staff members and 21 teacher assistants. The school offers a state of the art learning environment with internet access in all classrooms to build leaders and innovators, who will be prepared for the world marketplace. Most classrooms have four computers for student use during the school day, as well as access to two computer labs. A variety of educational programs including enrichment programs and online curricula provide students with a wealth of opportunity to excel and achieve.

These resources allow teachers to profile the past performance of a student and better meet the specific needs of individual students. We truly strive to achieve a culture of learning and leadership, and to promote social and academic success for all students, regardless of their circumstances.
