    They are very helpful in communicating with parents and students. The school is a good example of no child left behind. They make sure your child understands the work and willing to help when needed.

    I LOVE Crossroads!!!! I could not havepick a better school to Attend!!!! The principal Mr.Martin Is so awsome he stands at the gate every day to greet his students wether is is rain sleet or snow. This is the kind of school we need to decrease the level of bad things we have going on in this city. We need students to have a school that they can go to to have a community that loves them and Cares for them. I LOVE CROSSROADS!!!!!!

    My son has attended the Crossroads School for 2 years now. He will be in 8th grade this year. I have nothing but praises for this school. This is what public education should be about. The children who are fortunate enough to attend Crossroads are academically challengedand motivated to strive for greatness. The teachers as well as the Headmaster are excellent. They are very involved with the students and with their achievement. The children are taught to think for themselves and not to memorize materials for test purposes. There is zero tolerance for bad behavior. Parent involvement at Crossroads is the best I have experienced in dealing with the public school system. There are so many positives about this school. If all Baltimore public schools were like this school there would be no need for private schools. I highly recommend this school.
